ABC Newsonline: Iran has abolished stoning as a form of capital punishment, an Iranian newspaper reported today, in an apparent bid to ease European Union human rights concerns ahead of a possible breakthrough trade agreement.
The daily newspaper Bahar quoted Qorbanali Dorri Najafabadi, the former intelligence minister who heads the Supreme Administrative Court as saying, "The practice has been stopped for a while".
The newspaper also cited a reformist parliamentarian as saying the head of judiciary had sent a directive to judges instructing them to stop issuing death verdicts by stoning.
"To the best of my knowledge, Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi has ordered that execution by stoning should be stopped," said Jamileh Kadivar.
It seams that European Union members were only worried about stoning and Iran’s rulers had to solve the problem unwillingly. Now there are no other concerns and they can improve their relationship with mullahs. They are not much concern about innocent dissidents being kept in jails under terrible circumstances or banded newspapers or the obvious poverty, which causes crime and prostitution. They are just looking for their benefit and some issues like human rights is used as an efficient weapon to get more advantage of their contracts with Iran.
