伊朗: 現年22歲的家暴受害者 獲案件重審 暫免被處決

Zeinab 於15歲結婚後,不久被丈夫暴力對待,並遭其丈夫的兄弟強暴。她多次要求離婚,卻遭到丈夫拒絕。在她17歲時,其小叔涉嫌謀殺她丈夫。Zeinab被捕後遭屈打成招,並於最後一庭聆訊時才獲安排當值律師代表辯護。最終,法院判處Zeinab死刑。

國際特赦組織的支持者,為她的遭遇作出行動後,伊朗政府作出回應。Zeinab現在有代表律師,以當地伊斯蘭法律申請重審案件; 在重審未有判決時,她將不會被處決。

我們感謝各位曾為她作出聲援。國際秘書處將會繼續留意Zeinab的重審個案。

Iran: Execution of a victim of domestic violence halted, retrial application is granted

Iranian Kurdish woman Zeinab Sekaanvand Lokran, now aged 22, was sentenced to death in October 2014 after an unfair trial before a criminal court, which convicted her of killing her husband. She was arrested in 2012 at a police station where she forcefully confessed to the murder of her husband, whom she had married at the age of 15. She “confessed” that she stabbed her husband after he had subjected her to months of physical and verbal abuse and had refused her requests for divorce. Zeinab was only provided with a duty lawyer at her final trial session, at which point she retracted her “confession” telling the judge that her husband’s brother, who she said had raped her several times, had committed the murder.

After thousands of actions taken by Amnesty supporters around the globe, Zeinab has a lawyer representing her and to apply for a retrial. Subsequently, her execution is halted until a verdict is given by the retrial.

We thank everyone who have taken action for Zeinab and our International Secretariat will keep a close eye on her retrial.

活動剪影 Event Highlights
青年人權記者計劃(大專組別) 已順利完結
活動邀得不少過往人權新聞獎得獎者包括雷子樂、蘇敬恆等與同學分享和探討處理不同人權議題相關新聞的經驗,以及一些實用現場採訪技巧,同學對本地各項人權議題有更深入認識之餘,亦了解更多前線記者的實戰經驗。
 
而中學組別的同學亦已完成他們第三份的作業,這次他們探討「難民」議題,當中不乏別具意義的作品呢:http://www.hrj.amnesty.org.hk/
 
Human Rights Young Journalist Programme (Tertiary Education) successfully completed
Experienced and award-winning journalists were invited to share their experience in reporting various Human Rights issues.  Participants not only had better understandings of different human rights issues in Hong Kong, but they also knew some frontline experience from the speakers.
 
On the other hand, the Human Rights Young Journalists from the Secondary School group had finished their 3rd assignment about Refugee: http://www.hrj.amnesty.org.hk/ (in Chinese)

Speakers' Team:留學不忘學人權
今年盛夏,Eliz和Ginny參與「人權講者訓練計劃」,學習成為人權教育工作者。負笈海外的她們,把握機會學習和推廣人權。譬如十月底,她們參加英國分會主辦的「主題會議」,從兒童、女性及LGBTI權利角度探討難民議題。

Eliz and Ginny participated in AIHK Speakers' Team Training and learnt to be human rights educators this summer. While they are studying abroad, they grab the chance to learn more about human rights and spread the words. They joined the thematic conference by AIUK and discussed refugees issues in various areas including the rights of the child, women and LGBTI in late October.
