Islamic Republic of Iran’s penal code’s deep and constant conflict with international human rights law

27th session of the HRC

The Iranian penal code is in deep and constant conflict with international human rights law where type and intensity of punishments are concerned. In practice, in most cases the principle of ‘proportional justice’ is basically ignored as the punishments are extremely harsh and as they challenge the objectives of punishment such as rehabilitation and deterrence.
