Iran: End Executions by Stoning
Ja’far Kiani was stoned to death on 5 July 2007: he had been convicted of committing adultery with Mokarrameh Ebrahimi, with whom he had two children and who was also sentenced to death by stoning. Amnesty International opposes the death penalty in all circumstances and believes that stoning is specifically designed to increase the suffering of victims. In this document Amnesty International is calling on the Iranian government to abolish executions by stoning and to impose a moratorium on the death penalty pending the repeal or amendment of the Penal Code.
