Iranian Human rights activist Sadegh Naghaskar told that the death sentence was referred to in an interview with the state news agency Irna. The Dutch Foreign Ministry has confirmed this.
Naghaskar is concerned about the fate of the 45-year-old woman who was found guilty of possessing cocaine. "In principle she could be executed any moment now, but it could just as easily be several months." He says she has been transferred to an isolation wing of the prison known as 'Methadone'. This houses a number of political prisoners accused of possessing drugs.
Speaking from Tehran, Bahrami's daughter Banafsheh Najebpour told of her fears about her mother. Her only hope is that the Dutch government is prepared to put pressure on Iran. Officially, an appeal against the conviction still has to be heard.
The prosecution claimed Bahrami was carrying 500 grams of cocaine, while the Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman said it was more than a kilogram. Human rights activist Naghaskar regards the charge as ridiculous: "The accusation was only made to make the death penalty more acceptable to the West. In reality she will be hanged for contacting the opposition during last year's demonstrations."
Two people were executed in Iran on Monday: Jafar Kazemi and Mohammad Ali Hajaghaei were hanged for filming the demonstrations against President Ahmadinejad last year. Sadegh Naghaskar says 97 people have been hanged in the last three weeks.
Still people in Europe and Turkey (and elsewhere) are defending the Islamo-facist regime in Tehran. Europeans still don't get it that the Islam promoted by Milli Görüs, Fetulah movement, the MHP political party, Hamas, Hizbollah etc. etc. are there to misuse the Western democracies in the end to impose their mediaval views on people who simple don't agree with their opinions!
