Attorney in Iran stoning case remains missing
27-Jul-2010 (one comment)

An attorney representing an imprisoned Iranian woman facing possible execution by stoning remained missing Tuesday, although his wife and brother-in-law were in custody, a human rights activist said.

Mohammad Mostafaei's wife and brother-in-law were being held at Tehran's Evin prison, said Mina Ahadi, chairwoman of the International Committee against Execution and Stoning. Neither has had access to a lawyer, she said.

Mostafaei's father-in-law was contacted by officials Monday, who told him that both his children would be freed in exchange for Mostafaei himself, Ahadi said. She said Monday that Mostafaei's office has been closed.

Wow! IRI is holding the lawyer's wife and brother-in-law hostages.......IRI must feel humiliated by the world-wide protests and they are going after the lawyer......of course, IRI does not want to talk about stoning......they want to talk about flotilla attack!

I am glad that CNN does not let this story go away!
