Iran: Man sentenced to have eyes gouged out

The Iranian regime’s judiciary in city of Isfahan has condemned another man to have his eyes gouged, state-run news agency ISNA reported.

The man has been convicted of deliberately pouring acid on the face of a woman named Massoumeh Ataei which caused her to lose eyesight.

The Iranian regime’s judiciary officials have publicly defended the cutting off of hands and feet, the removal of a “defendant’s” eye, and even stoning as very real part of their judicial law.

Mohammad-Javad Larijani, the head of Iranian regime’s ‘Human Rights Council’, said on April 10: “The problem is that the West does not understand that Qisas (law of retribution) is different from execution. We are not ashamed of stoning or any of the Islamic decrees.

“No one has the right to tell a judge to avert some sentences because the United Nations gets upset. We should firmly and seriously defend the sentence of stoning.”

He also has said: “Retaliation and punishment are beautiful and necessary things. It’s a form of protection for the individual and civil rights of the people in a society. The executioner or the person carrying out the sentence is in fact very much a defender of human rights. One can say that there is humanity in the act of retaliation.”

Since Hassan Rouhani, has assumed presidency of the Iranian regime, savage punishments such as the gouging out of eyes and cutting off the hands and feet has continued, and the execution of the political prisoners and prisoners belonging to ethnic and religious minorities has also escalated.
