    Iranian to be stoned to death.

    Iranian man to be stoned to death despite moratorium
    An Iranian man convicted of adultery is to be stoned to death despite a moratorium being agreed by the judiciary last year.

    By Our Foreign Staff
    Published: 6:52PM BST 24 Aug 2009
    Naghi Ahmadi was sentenced to death by stoning in June last year in the northern city of Sari, after he visited a married woman's home in the night while her husband was away working in another city, the Sarmayeh newspaper reported.
    According to Ahmadi's lawyer, the verdict was declared after the woman and his client confessed to their adultery. The report did not explain why the woman was not convicted.
    A year ago the judiciary said it would scrap the punishment in Iran's new Islamic penal code.
    The outlines of the moratorium have been adopted by the Tehran parliament but are yet to be debated by its members.
    In a similar case in February, Abdollah Farivar was hanged in Sari after being sentenced to death by stoning following his conviction for having illicit relations with a teenage girl.
    Capital offences in Iran include murder, rape, armed robbery, apostasy, blasphemy, serious drug trafficking, repeated sodomy, adultery, prostitution, treason and espionage.
    Under Iran's existing law, adultery is still punishable by stoning, which involves the hurling of stones in public at a partially buried convict. A man is buried up to his waist and a woman up to her shoulders.
    Convicts are spared if they can free themselves.
    Stoning has drawn international condemnation, with the United Nations and the European Union calling on Iran to abolish the sentence. Iranian human rights campaigners have also urged the Islamic republic to stop the punishment view-source:Iranian man to be stoned to death despite moratorium - Telegraph

    A man is buried up to his waist and a woman up to her shoulders.
    Convicts are spared if they can free themselves. . . . . That does not seem quite fair at a casual glance.

    Well that sounds fair and equal.

    Sounds like a line out of a Monty Python movie!

    I can just imagine John Cleese reciting it!

    Ah, the religion of peace strikes again...

    Perhaps if we broadcast some porn over Iranian TV, they'll all stone each other to death for witnessing adultery...

    Can't expect Brittle justice to even keep convicted mass murders (by their own judicial process) in their own prisons for more than a few years.

    I welcome the arrival of Sharia law to the foggy little island.

    Don't forget the Thai-American Friendship Torture Prison in Bangkok.

    Well They'll stone you when you are all alone

    They'll stone you when you are walking home

    They'll stone you and then say they're all brave

    They'll stone you when you're send down in your grave

    But I would not feel so all alone


    Everybody must get stoned

    I thought Islamic law required four eye-witnesses as punishment for the offense of adultery making it very difficult to convict a person. Is that not the case in Iran?

    Are there any other religions in the world that will kill you for leaving it or being critical of it? How can, for example, claiming the koran is the ravings of a lunatic carry the same penalty as murder and rape?

    This is for rape, never heard of this for adultery, very odd that the woman got off in this case, maybe the guy just admitted the 'crime'.

    Is the stoning done exclusively with stones? Is it ok to use boulders, half enders, or lumps of reinforced concrete?
