PENA MORTE: IRAN; DIECI IMPICCAGIONI A TEHERAN

TEHERAN, 22 GEN - Dieci persone, fra cui un cittadino afghano, riconosciute colpevoli di omicidio sono state impiccate nel carcere di Evin, a Teheran, secondo quanto scrive oggi il giornale governativo iraniano. Fra ieri e martedi' i media avevano dato la notizia di altre tredici impiccagioni in Iran.

Le esecuzioni di cui si da notizia oggi riguardano uomini fra i 21 e i 42 anni, fra cui un cittadino afghano, Malagol Hassan, riconosciuto colpevole di aver ucciso un suo compatriota nel 2004.

Le ultime 10 portano a 27 (26 secondo altre fonti) il numero totale delle esecuzioni in Iran dall'inizio dell'anno, mentre nel 2008 sono state impiccate, secondo un calcolo della France Presse, 246 persone.

IRAN: IMPICCATI 10 UOMINI, GIA' 26 ESECUZIONI DA INIZIO ANNO

Teheran, 22 gen. - Esecuzione di massa a Teheran: dieci uomini tra i 21 e i 42 anni condannati a morte per omicidio sono stati impiccati nel penitenziario di Evin. Lo ha riferito un quotidiano filo-governativo iraniano, secondo cui le esecuzioni sono avvenute mercoledi' mattina. Altre 12 condanne a morte sono state eseguite in altre citta' della repubblica islamica da martedi' scorso, portando a 26 il totale dall'inizio dell'anno. Nel 2008 le impiccagioni erano state 246.

Tra gli ultimi giustiziati a Teheran anche un afghano, Molagol Hassan, accusato di aver ucciso nel 2004 un connazionale, dopo averlo derubato. Un venticinquenne e' stato invece graziato a pochi metri dal patibolo dopo che all'ultimo momento la famiglia della vittima ha accettato un indennizzo economico, come previsto dalle legge islamica.

La legge iraniana prevede che la pena di morte possa essere applicata per omicidio, violenza sessuale, rapina a mano armata, traffico di droga e adulterio.

Iran hangs 10 for murders

TEHRAN, Jan 22 - Iran hanged 10 convicted murderers in Tehran's Evin prison before dawn on Wednesday but one man's execution was postponed for a month, media reported on Thursday.

"Eleven individuals sentenced to death went to the gallows yesterday ... one of them returned to his cell after receiving a reprieve," government newspaper Iran said.

The Etemad-e Melli daily said the man's execution was postponed because the family of his victim was not present.

Under Iran's Islamic law, sharia, the family of a murder victim can pardon the killer in exchange for financial compensation, so-called "blood money".

Of the 10 who were hanged, 35-year-old Reza was convicted of killing his wife and two members of her family "in a horrible crime because of differences with his wife", Iran reported, without giving his last name.

Nine convicted murderers, including a woman, were hanged in the same jail on Dec. 24.

Murder, adultery, rape, armed robbery, apostasy and drug trafficking are all punishable by death in Iran.

European governments and Western rights groups have criticised Iran for an increasing number of executions since authorities launched a clampdown on "immoral behaviour" in 2007.

Amnesty International has listed the Islamic state as the world's second most prolific executioner in 2007, after China.

Iran says it is implementing Islamic law and rejects accusations it is violating human rights, accusing the West of double standards and hypocrisy.
