OSLO, Norway (AP) — The lawyer defending a woman sentenced to death by stoning in Iran has been reunited with his family in Norway.

Mohammad Mostafaei says he is “pleased” that his wife and 7-year-old daughter were allowed to travel to Norway, where they arrived Thursday on tourist visas.

In August, the 31-year-old lawyer fled to Turkey then Norway after learning Iranian officials intended to arrest him.

Mostafaei’s wife, Fereshteh, said Thursday that she’s “really happy” to join her husband in Norway. But she said she’s “very worried about the future” and is unsure how long the family will stay in Norway.

Mostafaei maintained a blog that sparked a worldwide campaign to free his client, Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, who was convicted of adultery.
