Stockholm (UPI) – Sweden Wednesday protested against the stoning to the death of an Iranian national for alleged adultery, the Swedish Foreign Ministry said.

The Iranian ambassador to Stockholm was summoned to the foreign ministry where State Secretary for Foreign Affairs Frank Belfrage conveyed a protest over the stoning of Jafar Keyiani last Thursday in the town of Takestan, north-western Iran, the ministry said.

The statement said that Portugal, current holder of the European Union presidency, had protested against the execution to Iranian officials in Tehran.

Belfrage reiterated Sweden’s opposition to the death penalty and underlined that the EU presidency had urged Iran to spare the life of Mokarrameh Ebrahimi, a mother of three, who was Keyiani’s alleged partner and who also risks stoning.
