Such a relief! Thank you European Union!

And many thanks to Nazanin Afshin Jam for calling the family of the victim last night. In the news it says that the execution has been postponed for one month with an agreement from the victim's family.

Thank you Nazanin! You're the best!

That's great news, Azarin! Khasteh nabasheed! I hope Behnoud is not executed and that no other child's life is ever considered worthless and unredeemable. Thank you.
