Save Leila From Execution


To: United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights

8-14 Avenue de la Paix 1211

Geneva 10, Switzerland

Leila, a 19 year old woman, faces imminent execution in Iran. What childhood she has had has been marred with physical and sexual abuse from the age of 8, giving birth to her first child at the age of 9. Having become a concubine to an Afghan man at the age of 12, Leila was forced into prostitution by him until the age of 14 when she gave birth to twin daughters. Leila was then given to a 55 year old married man who continued her history of abuse until her arrest at the age of 18, when she was found guilty of prostitution. Prostitution carries the death penalty under the Islamic laws of Iran. We, the undersigned, appeal for your involvement on Leila’s behalf based on principals of Universal Declaration of Human Rights (, to which Iran is a signatory.

Sincerely, The Undersigned

Cilck here to sign the petition.
