Stay of execution for Shafqat Hussain

20 Mar
UPDATE: We’ve heard news reports that Shafqat Hussain’s execution has been halted — but maybe only temporarily. Thank you to everyone who took the time to sign the petition. Please keep signing and sharing.

Shafqat-Hussain-pictured--007Shafqat Hussain was still a child – fourteen years old – when Pakistan authorities sentenced him to death. His execution is due to take place tomorrow.

According to his lawyers, he was convicted based on a “confession” following nine days of torture by police.

Hussain has been in prison for ten years now. But late last week, authorities suddenly issued his death warrants.

They’re planning to hang him tomorrow.

Please, call on Pakistan to halt this execution immediately.
