Iran's judiciary urged to halt Razieh Ebrahimi's execution as international law prohibits execution for crimes by juveniles
Razieh Ebrahimi was forced to marry at the age of 14, became a mother at 15, and killed her husband at 17. Now at 21, she is on Iran's death row.
Ebrahimi, who shot dead her husband while he was sleeping, faces imminent execution, despite international laws prohibiting execution for crimes committed by juveniles.
Human Rights Watch, has urged Iran's judiciary to halt the execution. Earlier this week, Ebrahimi's lawyer also asked judges to consider a retrial, the semi-official Mehr news agency reported.
"I married our neighbour's son when I was only 14 because my dad insisted," Ebrahimi was quoted as telling officials working on her case, according to Mehr. "My dad insisted I should marry him because he was educated and was working as a teacher. I was 15 when I gave birth to my child." Her child is believed to be now six years old.
"I didn't know who I am or what is life all about," she said soon after being arrested. "My husband mistreated me. He used any excuse to insult me, even attacking me physically."
Ebrahimi is said to have admitted to killing her husband with his own gun before burying him in the garden. Ebrahimi initially told the police her husband was missing but her own father found the dead body and gave her in to the police.

And we all know how much the muzzies follow international law.
I can see why Muslim societies wouldn’t want this to catch on. But were I a Muslim woman, death would be a welcome reprieve to the horror of living as a Muslim woman.
At least she had the satisfaction of seeing her tormentor die. Too bad she didn’t gun down her father, too.

You should talk with the many American women who converted to Islam and now live in Saudi Arabia.
I admire her restraint~~~she should have shook him and shot again!
Money can grease lot of rough spots.
International Law? We don't need no stinking International Law!
She might think rich and exotic is worth the culture shock.
Unless that fails and now that turns into poor and crazy.
I was wondering if her child was a girl....
These people are nothing but barbarians. What evil lurks in their heads!
There goes her alimony!
