Petition to Foreign Secretary William Hague to help Ebrahim Hamidi

51 Signatures Goal: 100

An 18-year-old Iranian is facing imminent execution on charges of homosexuality, even though he has no legal representation. Ebrahim Hamidi, who is not gay, was sentenced to death for lavat, or sodomy, on the basis of "judge's knowledge", a legal loophole that allows for subjective judicial rulings where there is no conclusive evidence. After three days in detention, Hamidi confessed to the crime, allegedly under torture. However, last month Hamidi's alleged victim admitted that he had been under pressure from his parents to make false accusations. Nevertheless the local judiciary has insisted that Hamidi should be executed. William Hague please in your role as Foreign Secretary halt this execution in the name of human rights.
