Sholeh Pakravan, mother of Reyhaneh Jabbari, has organized a special commemoration event to remember her daughter hanged by the Iranian regime on October 25, 2014. Reyhaneh was arrested in 2007 for killing a man who tried to rape her. The man was very close to the Iranian intelligence and because of this, the judicial system decided to do not take in consideration the reasons of Reyhaneh, confirming her condemnation to death penalty (despite international pressures). Before the hanging, Reyhaneh spent seven years in jail.
In the occasion of Reyhaneh 29th birthday, Mrs. Pakravan organized a special commemoration celebration in her home in Tehran. In this special occasion, Mrs. Pakravan said that she hopes that soon there will be a new democratic Iran, in which the cranes will be used only to construct and not for hanging prisoners.
