イランで石打の刑廃止へ

イランで石打の刑廃止へ

イランでは,古いイスラム法典がそのままのこっていました。この結果,たとえば,レイプされた少女が石打の刑で殺されるという,(現代日本人から観れば)むちゃくちゃな事態がありました。

 姦淫した女性は死刑であり,レイプされても,そのことが認められなければ死刑になってしまうわけです。

新法が提案され,石打の刑が廃止になる方向です。

今年3月26日には,石打の刑を宣告されていた17歳の女性Mokarrameh Ebrahimiが釈放されています。

彼女と一緒に石打の刑を宣告されていたJa'far Kiani は,残念ながら昨年7月5日に処刑されてしまっていました。

しかし,粘り強い運動により,まずは,司法の裁量による釈放,そして,立法による廃止が実現しました。

Proposed Legislation in Iran Would End Death by Stoning

Iran's state media announced Wednesday that Iran has suspended the use of stoning as a way to carry out the death penalty. According to AFP, Iran's judiciary drafted legislation that would end stoning as a death penalty, the current Islamic punishment in Iran for adulterers.

Amnesty International reports in their call to end stoning in Iran, "The majority of those sentenced to death by stoning are women. Women are not treated equally with men under the law and by courts, and they are also particularly vulnerable to unfair trials because their higher illiteracy rate makes them more likely to sign confessions to crimes they did not commit."

Amnesty International, the Volunteer Lawyer's Network, the European Union, the Stop Stoning Forever Campaign, and many other human rights groups have been pressuring Iran to end this practice of execution for years. In 2002, Ayatollah Shahroudi, the head of Iran's judiciary banned the practice of stoning but did not remove the laws from the books. Execution by stoning continued, including the stoning of Jafar Kiani in 2007, which sparked international outrage.

Woman Sentenced to Be Stoned to Death Is Released from Iranian Prison

After spending eleven years in prison awaiting death by stoning because of committing adultery, Mokarrameh Ebrahimi was released on Monday March 17. Ebrahimi and her partner Ja'far Kiani were convicted of adultery and sentenced to be stoned to death in northwestern Iran.

According to Amnesty International, the Stop Stoning Forever campaign in Iran publicized the plans for the public stoning of the couple and rallied against it. However, Kiani was still stoned to death on July 5, 2007. Ebrahimi's death was stayed due to the public outcry, and last week the Iranian judiciary amnesty commission released her from prison.

Shadi Sadr, Ebrahimi's lawyer and anti-stoning activist, told Amnesty International, "It was a rare ruling...I cannot tell how the commission came up with this decision...But you cannot deny the role of public opinion and domestic and international pressures."

The Global Campaign to Stop Killing and Stoning Women! reports that the head of the Judiciary of Iran Ayatollah Shahroudi outlawed the practice of stoning, a historical and religious punishment for adultery, in 2002. However, the laws were never officially removed from the code. Amnesty International estimates that at least 12 people await death by stoning.
BBC News reports that eight women and one man are currently awaiting death by stoning in Iran.
