In 2004, 16 year old Atefeh Sahaaleh was executed in Iran for adultery and “crimes against chastity” after she confessed, under torture, to being raped repeatedly by a 51 year old man.
A television team gathered testimonies and documents about the case of a 16-year-old girl who was executed in Iran in 2004.
On 15 August 2004, Atefah Sahaaleh was hanged in a public square in the Iranian city of Neka. Her sentence was “crimes against chastity.”
The state newspaper accused her of adultery, claiming she was 22. But Atefah was not married, and was only 16.
This is very disturbing to say the least…
