TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — The lawyer for an Iranian woman sentenced to be stoned on an adultery conviction says he and her children are worried the delayed execution could be carried out soon.

Javid Houtan Kian says a moratorium on death sentences for Ramadan is running out with the conclusion this week of the Muslim holy month.

The lawyer said Monday that Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani’s stoning sentence could happen “any moment.”

The sentence was put on hold in July after an international outcry and it is now being reviewed by Iran’s supreme court.

Ashtiani was convicted in 2006 of having an “illicit relationship” with two men after the murder of her husband and was sentenced to 99 lashes. Later that year, she was also convicted of adultery and sentenced to be stoned.
