9. Announcement by the President
Video of the speeches

  President. – Ladies and gentlemen, the sitting is now resumed. I am pleased and, indeed, delighted to announce a piece of news that I have heard from certain press agencies, according to which the Iranian Foreign Minister has stayed the execution of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani. A few hours ago, this House expressed a solid, united opinion on this issue, with a majority verging on unanimity. We are delighted with that, but the battle goes on, because now it is essential to call for the case to be reviewed. Parliament must play its part in doing what it has always done, which is to defend human rights throughout the world.
