Amnesty International’s condemnation (Isfahan)
Amnesty International in a report which published on November 25, 2021, wrote in relation to the inhuman verdict of “Qisas” :
” The death penalty, including through the application of the principle of retribution. Regardless of the nature of the crime and the personality and characteristics of the criminal. Is a violation of the right to life and is the most cruel, inhuman and humiliating type of punishment. And considered a gross violation of international laws. “
Amnesty International wrote: “According to laws of Islamic Republic of Iran, retribution is a philosophy based on mutual revenge. And dictates that those found guilty of murder sentenced to the same fate that ended victim’s life, namely death.” The law grants the family of the victim the right to either demand and execute the execution of the convict. Or to avoid killing the convict in exchange for a ransom.
This international organization added: “In this way, the law of revenge involves victim’s family in process of killing another person. Who sentenced to death by the order of the judicial system.
By maintaining such conditions, judicial system puts the close relatives of victim in a harsh situation. Diminishes their human characteristics. and in the course of time, reduces the value that the society should attach to the right to life of human beings.
