June 30 Human Rights Watch has called for an immediate halt to the Islamic Republic's plan to execute Zainab and condemns her lack of access to a lawyer. From the source, "Khalil Bahramian, a lawyer who represented Farzad Kamangar, one of four Kurdish dissidents executed without warning in May, told the Persian-language website Roozonline that his efforts to represent Jalalian have been rebuffed by the government and that he is not certain where she is being held."

Zahra Rahnavard has written regarding Zainab's pending execution, "Will God forgive us for destroying and ending the life a women who embodies universal compassion and tenderness? Zeynab is a young girl. Why is this young girl not able to benefit from information, awareness, knowledge of our history, sociology, and other such matters?"

June 26 Imminent danger of execution. Zainab Jalalian has reportedly been moved to Evin Prison's Ward 209 and is in immediate danger. Her lawyer, Khalil Bahramian, has stated that United Nations intervention is the only chance to save Zeinab's life.
