Tehran, Feb. 04 – A Tehran court has sentenced a couple to death by stoning and hanging, according to the state-run daily Etemad.

Iran’s Supreme Court has reportedly upheld the verdicts and has confirmed that the woman only identified by her first name Massoumeh will be stoned to death and her husband identified by his first name Ismaeil will be hanged to death.

The couple were accused of murder. Another unnamed individual also charged with murder separately was handed down an execution sentence in Pakdasht (west of Tehran).

Stoning to death is a barbaric punishment used by the Iranian regime, where the victim is buried up to the waist in the ground (women are buried up to the shoulders) and stones are thrown to their heads, with the law stating that the stones must not be big enough to kill the person instantly and not be too small so that the victim feels the maximum amount of pain.
