Four decades of the clerical regime’s rule in Iran has left thousands of victims through widespread practice of torture and ill-treatment with impunity.
Torture has been institutionalized in the regime’s punishment laws and is sanctioned by the Judiciary as well as the regime officials.
Hadi Sadeghi, Deputy Chancellor of the Judiciary was quoted by the state-run ISNA news agency on May 30, 2018, as saying, “There is no precepts of imprisonment in Islam, so we need to seek alternative punishments.

Demak, Central Java. A migrant worker returning to Indonesia is among five drug smugglers nabbed in a crystal methamphetamine raid in the Demak district of Central Java, police said on Saturday (15/10).

The migrant worker, identified by the initials YT, had previously worked in Malaysia before being nabbed by the National Anti-Narcotics Agency (BNN) earlier this month after attempting to smuggle around 56 kilograms of crystal meth from Tegal, Central Java, to Tangerang, Banten.

Based on tip-offs from the suspect, BNN raided another home in Kalisari, a village in the Demak Baru subdistrict, on Saturday where a further 11 kilograms of the drug were seized after being discovered in a water pump engine.

BNN law enforcement deputy Insp. Gen. Arman Depari said the drugs were identified as top quality crystal methamphetamine and believed to be delivered from Malaysia.

“We have not found out whether the drugs were produced in Malaysia or other country as the investigation is still on going,” Depari said in Demak, as reported by state run Antara news agency.

BNN also arrested four other suspects, identified as WJ of Pati, Central Java, WD from Rembang in Central Java, TT from Karawang in West Java and YS from Jakarta.
