28 OCTOBER 2014

Declaration by the High Representative on behalf of the EU following the execution of Ms. Reyhane Jabbari in Iran.


The European Union is appalled by the execution of Ms Reyhane Jabbari and expresses its most heartfelt condolences to her family, especially her mother.

The European Union deeply regrets that the Iranian judicial system did not allow a retrial of the case, in spite of doubts over the fairness of the trial and Ms Jabbari's constant claims that she was merely defending herself against a sexual assault.

The European Union expresses its deep concern regarding the increasing number of executions in Iran and reiterates its strong opposition to the death penalty which is cruel and inhumane, as well as irreversible. The European Union calls on the Iranian authorities to stay all pending executions and consider establishing a moratorium on the use of death penalty.

The Candidate Countries the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia*, Montenegro*, Iceland+, Serbia* and Albania*, the country of the Stabilisation and Association Process and potential candidate Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the EFTA countries Liechtenstein and Norway, members of the European Economic Area, as well as Ukraine, the Republic of Moldova and Georgia align themselves with this declaration.
