Stoning

Summary:


From Iranian Penal code prior to 2013. The status of stoning as a punishment in Iran is now unclear as the provision was originally removed by Iranian MPs but then reinstated with ambiguous wording by the Iranian Guardian Council of Cleric and sharia Jurists.

Article 102 of the Islamic Penal Code reads: “An adulterer man shall be buried in a ditch up to near his waist and an adulterer woman up to near her chest and then stoned to death.”

Article 104 – “The size of the stone used in stoning shall not be too large to kill the convict by one or two throws and at the same time shall not be too small to be called a stone.” That is, pebbles are ruled out, but so are rocks big enough to kill quickly.

Article 23 – But if the condemnation is based on the testimonies of witnesses, then first the witnesses will throw stones, then the mentioned judge and then other people.

Stonings can reportedly take anywhere from 20 minutes to two hours. According to the International Committee Against Stoning, the doctor recruited to oversee the execution (often against his will) will periodically stop proceedings to check if the victim is dead. If not, the stoning resumes.
