Gotta love that Shariah...Liquidated because of something you didn't do when you were 13 years old, 8 years after you didn't do it, and at your trial, all the witnesses say you didn't do it.

Islamist justice.

I've always been struck by this famous painting by Breugel the Elder...These days when I look at it, I think: If we put long robes on the skeletons, the painting really could be named "Triumph of Shariah," instead of Triumph of Death.

Of course, more and more they are the same thing...


Iran: Young Man Executed for Alleged Sex Crime
Date: December 5, 2007 Middle East » Iran » Press Release

(New York, Wednesday December 5, 2007) - The International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission (IGLHRC) has learned today that despite an order by the Iranian Chief Justice to nullify his death sentence, Mr. Makvan Mouloodzadeh was executed in Kermanshah Central Prison at 5 a.m. this morning, Iranian time. Neither Mr. Mouloodzadeh's family or his lawyer were told about the execution until after it occurred. IGLHRC is still investigating the facts in this case.

"This is a shameful and outrageous travesty of justice and international human rights law," said Paula Ettelbrick, IGLHRC's executive director. "How many more young Iranians have to die before the international community takes action?"

Mr. Mouloodzadeh was a 21-year-old Iranian citizen who was accused of committing anal rape (ighab) with other young boys when he was 13 years old. However, at Mr. Mouloodzadeh's trial, all the witnesses retracted their pre-trial testimonies, claiming to have lied to the authorities under duress. Makvan also told the court that his confession was made under coercion and pleaded not guilty.
