Iran: Judiciary Ponders How To Execute ‘Adulteress’


The Iranian judiciary is deliberating over how to execute Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, who was convicted of “adultery” and “the murder of her husband.”

ISNA reports that Judge Malek Ajdar Sharfi said on Sunday: “We are trying to determine whether or not death by stoning can be changed to death by hanging.”

Ashtiani was sentenced to stoning last year, but that was held off due to international outrage.

Judge Ajdar Sharifi added: “[Ms. Ashtiani] was charged with two crimes of adultery, which is punishable by stoning, and complicity in the murder of her husband, for which she had been sentenced to ten years.”

He added that the head of the judiciary has said that if stoning is not possible, then the death penalty can be carried out by hanging.

    Woman of the free world or technological world are generally viewed as jezebels. That appears to be politically correct for all governing processes in the united States…so beware getting near Iran…they will be fortunate to practice their own faith where they did not have women in concubines…or had a close neighbor like Iraq that lived like the sumerians in the past.
    Even the orthodox are viewed as terrorists today.
    Everyone have a good day…
