Amnesty International REPORT: Iran- Executions by stoning

Death by stoning is the mandatory sentence for “adultery while married” in iran. Even though a moratorium on Such Executions was announced In 2002, Stonings continue.
amnesty International is working alongside the many Iranians who are campaigning to end Iran’s resort to this particularly abhorrent method of Execution.
In this document Amnesty International calls on the Iranian authorities to fully respect the moratorium, including by ensuring that all individuals sentenced to stoning will not face execution by other means. The organization also calls for the decriminalization of consensual sexual relations between adults and for lawyers defending stoning cases to be allowed to carry out their work without fear of persecution.
