New Penal Code Retains the Punishment of Stoning
According to "Justice for Iran" the Guardian Council has once again included the sentence of death by stoning as part of the Islamic Republic’s penal code. During the process of revising the said document, the Islamic Republic Parliament had replaced stoning with execution or lashing. However, adultery remains punishable by stoning in the final draft of the penal code, which the president is expected to give his assent to within the next few days.
