Iran: Judiciary official stresses on cross amputation for offenders
The state-run Fars news agency cited Judiciary Spokesperson Gholam-Hossein Mohseni-Eje’i, on January 17, 2018 as saying that there would be a strict punishment for anyone who created insecurity in the community.
Referring to the punishment of offenders according to religious law, he said that “a leg and hand can be amputated.”
“Another punishment we have in mind for those who create insecurity in the community is either execution or to permanently cut them off from the community so they would not have the right to return to their life and people.”
This is the importance of security and order in the community,” he stressed.
