Aug. 24 (Bloomberg) — French first lady Carla Bruni- Sarkozy published a letter today in three national media outlets supporting an Iranian mother sentenced to death by stoning after being convicted of adultery.

The case of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani has drawn international condemnation after the mother of two was sentenced to death. Bruni-Sarkozy called on the Iranian authorities to grant clemency. “Judges must understand it, Sakineh, your name has become a symbol across the globe,” she wrote.

“My husband will plead your cause,” Bruni-Sarkozy added in the letter published in Liberation newspaper, Elle magazine and La Regle du Jeu’s web site.
