Ashtiani, 43, was convicted of having sexual relations with two of her husband's murderers, and, as a result, was sentenced to death by stoning. Iran decided to suspend her sentence in order to reopen the case after her children issued a letter calling on the world to put pressure on Tehran.
Currently, the children are feeling the heavy weight of the regime as it pressures them not to speak with foreign media outlets.

The BBC reported that hundreds of people demonstrated in Toronto, New York City, Paris, Berlin, and other cities protested for the sentence to be revoked. Protesters in Stockholm even asked passersby to sign an international petition for Ashtiani's release.
Dozens of people protested in London's Trafalgar Square, calling on the international community "to make the world stand still" over Ashtiani's case and carried signs calling Iran's behavior "medievalism and barbarism."
The protesters told CNN that they knew of 18 cases in which people received death sentences after being revealed as homosexuals.
Data from Amnesty International reveals that at least six people have been stoned to death in Iran since 2006. Another 15 people received the same verdict, but the sentence was ultimately mitigated.
Just two weeks ago the Iranian courts sentenced two other women to death for adultery.
