Iran: Stoning sentences for a woman and man confirmed

The Iranian regime’s supreme court on Sunday confirmed the death sentences by stoning for a man and a woman on charges of adultery.

According to Herana news agency on Monday, the two are imprisoned at Oroumieh prison in northwestern Iran and are identified as Vali Janfeshani and Sarieh Ebadi.

 

The two have been behind bars since 2008 in Oroumieh’s central prison. The judicial process has been described as hazy and both defendants were deprived of defense attorneys and the right to defend themselves throughout the proceedings.

The ruling was handed down at a time when there is an international outcry over a similar sentence against a 47 year old woman, Sakineh Ashtiani, who is currently being held at Tabriz prison.
