Execution is a type of punishment in Iran
Execution is a type of punishment and penalty for the convicted. Currently, most countries in the world have also abolished the death penalty, and countries that still have this type of penalty in their laws refrain from issuing or executing such sentences except in rare cases. The death penalty is legal in Iran, and this penalty issued in Iranian judicial rulings for some political crimes, murder, rape, sexual abuse of children, sodomy, drug trafficking, armed robbery, kidnapping and Moharebeh.
Historically, execution has been a tool of power and dictatorship to intimidate and subdue people. The dictatorship ruling Iran has also been using the tool of execution for over forty years to create fear and establish its permanent rule.
