Did You Know?

Stoning  in Iran is prescribed for the offense of “adultery while being married.” In 2002 the head of the Judiciary introduced in a directive implementing a moratorium on executions by stoning. In 2008 Ali Beza Jamshidi said that the directive on the moratorium had no legal weight and judges were therefore free to IGNORE it.
