Mohammad Javad LarijaniMohammad Javad Larijani, the Head of the Human Rights Council of the Iranian regime's Judiciary said on August 5: "We are proud of our judicial system and we do not feel uncomfortable with Law of Retribution and even stoning."

Human rights organizations have increasingly condemned the Iranian regime for practices such as executions, stoning, limb amputations, eye gouging and flogging.

Larijani has continuously rejected international criticism and censure by the United Nations.

In the past he has described stoning and amputations under the regime's Law of Retribution as 'beautiful' and had called the medieval punishments a 'service to humanity' and said the increased execution rate was a positive marker of the regime's achievement.

He told the Wall Street Journal in 2011: "Stoning means you should do a number of acts by throwing a limited number of stones in a special way. In the eyes of some people, stoning is a lesser punishment than execution because there is a chance you should survive."
