There is a huge row afoot over whether the woman in the photograph really even is Sakineh Ashtiani, because her family and one of her other attorneys have stated firmly that it is NOT Sakineh.
Meanwhile, I want to know what the f*ck Mohammed Mostafei was even thinking to have given a news outlet a photograph of an unveiled woman when he is dealing with a woman who is literally fighting for her life because of Sharia law that wants her veiled, shut up and dead? Maybe he ought to think a little less about his 15 minutes and more about his former client and the world she's living (for the present) in? Maybe reflecting on her every waking moment will make him think twice before any further commentary. Her family certainly hopes so. According to Iran Free Press, Sajjad, her son, has implored Mostafei not to make any further comments about his mother, his mother's case or his father's death.
The CNN report quotes her attorney Houtan Kian as saying that Sakineh was already flogged for the photo.
It is all simply too horrifying to imagine. What more must this woman endure?
