“Iran: End executions by stoning”

Amnesty International uses a primarily human rights based framework to detail theissue of stoning in Iran as well as the Stop Stoning Forever Campaign. Amnesty International calls on the Iranian government to abolish immediately and totally executions by stoning and to impose a moratorium on the death penalty pending the repeal or amendment of the Penal Code. All existing sentences of execution by stoning should be commuted. Amnesty International also opposes the criminalization of consensual adult sexual relations conducted in private, and urges the Iranian authorities to review all relevant legislation with the aim of decriminalizing consensual adult sexual relations conducted in private.
