Fereshteh Halimi has joined her husband in appealing for renewed international pressure to save his former client, Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, the Iranian woman sentenced to death by stoning for alleged adultery.

Speaking soon after her dramatic flight from Iran, Ms Halimi said it was only the widespread publicity given to Ms Ashtiani's case in the West that had dissuaded the regime from executing her, but she remained in serious danger.

"Her case brings shame on Iran," said Ms Halimi, who insisted that no other country would impose such a terrible sentence for such a transgression.
