The revival of the abandoned law of stoning

Shadi Sadr gives a brief background on stoning cases in the last 10 years. She then explains how adultery is proven in Iranian courts using “judges finding” (see narrative), instead of witnesses or confession. She also explains how in many cases, the execution of stoning is carried out before the execution of other punishments such as imprisonment, contrary to Article 98 of the Islamic Penal Code stating that lighter punishments must be carried out before more severe sentences.
