We have just learned that Hamid Ahmadi’s execution has been stayed. The authorities have informed his family that they have stopped all plans to execute him.
We understand that this development has come about because the Iranian authorities have felt the pressure from huge public campaigning and private advocacy efforts, spearheaded by Amnesty International.
Thank you to everyone for your support. We will continue monitoring Hamid Ahmadi’s situation to ensure that the Iranian authorities stay true to their word.
