The law states that unmarried adulterers will receive lashes, and married adulterers will be sentenced to death by stoning.
However, it demands heavy proof requirements. If the person is repentant, the judge can give a reduced sentence of 99 lashes. In addition, the person may also spend one year in prison. Due to the high proof requirements, convictions for adultery are relatively rare, and even when they occur, the death sentence for that crime is almost never given, except in serious cases such as when the spouse died which is what occurred in Ashtiani's case.
InIran had put a moratorium on stoning to death. In JanuaryIran officially changed its law, saying that adultery could be punished by hanging, rather than stoning, possibly ending that punishment in Iran.
This penalty has never been carried out for more than a decade in Iran and is unlikely in the near future. Original proceedings[ edit ] InEbrahim Qaderzadeh, Ashtiani's husband, aged 44, was murdered by electrocution by his cousin, Isa Taheri.
On May 15, Sakineh entered a guilty plea of having had an "illicit relationship outside marriage" with another man court records show it was not Taheri, but another person.
Under Islamic law, murderers can be forgiven and pay restitution diyya to the victim's family, or the family can demand retribution qisas and have the murderer executed.
Sajjad Qaderzadeh, Ashtiani's son, forgave Taheri, accepted blood money, and he was sentenced to 10 years in prison. In Septemberher murder case went to trial. She was not found guilty of the actual murder since she did not physically kill her husband and the murderer was forgiven but she was given 10 years in prison for complicity in murder and disrupting the public order, equal to Taheri's sentence.
Upon appeal, this was later reduced to five years in prison. Her son, Sajjad Qaderzadeh, states that he was unaware of this new trial, and as she had been convicted for adultery previously, this new trial was "illegal".
However, this trial may have been for adultery committed with Taheri, rather than a "second man", as records from her previous trial seem to indicate.
This time, the court sentenced her to death, because of her alleged role in her husband's murder. Ashtiani recanted a previous confession and entered a plea of "not guilty". Due to the majority vote, she was sentenced to death by stoning for adultery.
Her appeal was denied, as was her request for clemency by the "Amnesty and Pardons Commission" of Iran. Mostafaei stated that he was being harassed for defending his client, Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, as well as other clients.
Her case was subsequently transferred to the deputy prosecutor-general Saeed Mortazavi. Ashtiani's son was told that the file on his father's murder case had been lost.Classic Makeover Play Goes Digital!
