Holandë: Në Iran ekzekutohet holandezja me origjine iraniane

Zahra Bahrami

Zahra Bahrami

Sipas mediave holandeze dhe ndërkombëtare të lajmeve, holandezja me origjinë iraniane Zahra Bahrami është ekzekutuar në Iran pasiqë është deklaruar fajtore për  tregti ilegale me drogë dhe është dënuar me vdekje më 2 janar. Ajo u arrestua më 27 Dhjetor 2009 pasi thuhet të ketë marrë pjesë në protestat antiqeveritare gjatë një vizite në Teheran.

Kampanja për lirimin e të burgosurve politikë në Iran ka shkruar një letër Ministrisë holandeze të punëve të jashtme [en] në shtator 2010 për ti nxitur të  kërkojnë nga Irani lirimin e saj. Kauzën e Bahrami-t[nl] e ndërmorri edhe Sekcioni holandez i Amnesty International duke dyshuar fortë se gjykimi i Bahrami-t nuk ka qenë i drejtë.  Këtë mëngjes ata raportuan lajmet për ekzekutimin e saj në  Twitter:

Nederlands-Iraanse Zahra Bahrami in Iran geëxecuteerd door ophanging (via @nrc) #doodstraf #bahrami nrc.nl/nieuws/2011/01…

Dutch-Iranian Zahra Bahrami executed in Iran by hanging (via [Dutch newspaper] @nrc) #deathpenalty #bahrami

Dutch Twitter users reacted to the news.

@voetvaeg writes [nl]:

SCHOKKEND: ondertussen heeft Iran de Nederlandse Zahra #Bahrami geëxecuteerd door ophanging! http://bit.ly/hKpnc5

SHOCKING: meanwhile Iran has executed Dutch Zahra #Bahrami by hanging! http://bit.ly/hKpnc5

Some people, like @VrolijkRechts, wanted to do more than just tweet [nl] about it:

Beste mensen. Hoe laat zijn jullie bij de Iraanse ambassade om jullie te laten horen? Of blijven wij boos twitteren? #Zahra #Bahrami

Come on everyone, what time shall we meet at the Iranian embassy to raise our voices? Or will we just post angry tweets about it? #Zahra #Bahrami

Others, such as @bobbraak, called on the Dutch government to take action [nl]:

vanmiddag om 17:00 uur gaat er vlucht naar tehran. Uri, die kan de iraanse ambassadeur mooi nog halen! #bahrami

@Leon_Bosma puts things into perspective [nl]:

Veel verontwaardiging over #Bahrami. Zonder af te willen doen, wat maakt één staatsmoord zo belangrijk versus bv. de ruim 30 in #Egypte?

@BartNijman is skeptical [nl] about the case:

Als op drugsdelicten in Iran de doodstraf staat, waarom zou voor een Iraans-Nederlandse dan wat anders moeten gelden? #bahrami #iran

The International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran posted a reaction from Bahrami's lawyer [en]:

I am shocked. I was absolutely not informed about this. They should have informed her lawyer of the execution, but I had no idea. I don’t know what to say. Just that I am shocked.

On Saturday afternoon, Dutch newspaper de Volkskrant reported [nl] that the Iranian ambassador in the Netherlands has confirmed that Bahrami has indeed been executed, upon which the Netherlands immediately froze all ties with Iran. The Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs, Uri Rosenthal, calls the case “a scandal, committed by a barbarian regime”.
