27 year old Reyhaney Jabbari (pictured above), was executed today March 25th by death by hanging in Iran 7 years after she killed a person that she said had rape her. Reyhaney was sentenced to death in 2009 for the stabbing of Morteza Abdolali Sarbandi, a former intelligence officer.

A judge ruled that she killed Morteza deliberately since she’d ordered the knifes two days before she stabbed him in the trunk with it. In her defence, Reyhaney claimed she’d stabbed the person out of self defence. The judge overruled her statements and sentenced her to death, a ruling that has been upheld by Iran’s high court.

Several individual rights figures including Amnesty Global had through the years called on Iran’s judiciary to halt the execution nevertheless they gone forward with it. Her mom proved it, expressing Reyhaney was hanged in a Tehran jail early this morning.
