“European Parliament motion for a resolution on the death penalty in Iran”

Paragraph 10, part 8 states that while the European Parliament welcomed the announcement by the Head of the Judiciary in 2008 of the suspension of stoning as a means of execution, it is still concerned that stoning remains under the Penal Code and calls on the Members of the Majlis (parliament) to commit themselves to the complete abolition of stoning.
