Concerns: Appeal for Mercy


Your Excellency.

Dear Sir or Madam,


I, the undersigned Ruby Harrold-Claesson, attorney-at-law in Gothenburg, Sweden, president of the Nordic Committee for Human Rights - NCHR - For the protection of Family Rights in the Nordic countries, have been approached concerning the fate of Safya Husseini Tungar-Tudu, a young mother of an "illegitimate" child, who according to the information I have received, is facing a death sentence because she had a child out of wedlock.


This causes great concern for the members of the steering committee of the NCHR.


I would like to inform you that the world famous writer of children's books, Mrs Astrid Lindgren, also gave birth to a son out of wedlock. Had she been put to death for the "crime" of giving birth to an illegitimate child, the world would be a poorer one for us and all the children of the world.


On behalf of the NCHR, I am therefore writing to you to request you to petition the President of the Republic of Nigeria to grant pardon and save the life of Safya Husseini Tungar-Tudu.


Save the mother's life - for the sake of the child and for the sake of your country. Thanking you in advance.


Very truly yours



Ruby Harrold-Claesson


President of the NCHR
