Iran. Ashtiani's case remains under review

The head of judiciary of East Azerbaijan province Malek Ajdar Sharifi dismissed Western reports that Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani could be executed.

Ashtiani was tried in court and found guilty of committing adultery and colluding with another man to kill her husband.

"She is in perfect health and held in a prison in the city of Tabriz," IRNA quoted the judiciary official as saying on Wednesday.

Sharifi added that the hostile Western media campaign regarding the case aims to invent poisonous propaganda against the Islamic Republic of Iran rather than sticking to their main duty of objectively disseminating information.

The Iranian judiciary official also emphasized that Ashtiani's case remains under a judicial review.
