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.

The state-run Fars news agency cited Judiciary spokesperson Gholam-Hossein Mohseni-Eje’i, on January 17, 2018 as stressing on cross amputation for offenders where their opposite hand and foot are amputated.

It's always heartbreaking to hear the news of a child's passing, but perhaps even more so when the child was murdered at the hands of their own flesh and blood.

A 20-year-old food processing student at an agricultural college in Bukit Kayu Hitam was recently charged in the magistrate's court for drowning her newborn baby in the hostel's toilet bowl.

The Star reported that Nur Izzati Adi allegedly murdered her baby on March 30 at 5:20pm in the women's toilet located on the 3rd floor - to which she nodded as the charges were read last Monday.

As it is a murder case, the court ruled that Nur Izzati was charged under Section 302 of the Penal Code, which carries the mandatory death penalty upon conviction.

No plea was recorded, and on top of being denied bail, Nur Izzati was taken to the Pokok Sea prison.

Nur Izzati was represented by Tunku Intan Mahiya Tunku Mahamad, and prosecuted by the Deputy Public Prosecutor Parihah Ab Kadir.

However, in light that the post-mortem report has yet to be fully revealed, Magistrate Nurfadrina Zulkhairi has declared that the case will be re-mentioned in court on June 7.

The daily also highlighted that police were investigating a possible case of body dumping, but promptly turned into a murder case after the baby was confirmed to be alive prior death.

The 1st-year student was first arrested when she went to a government hospital to sought medical treatment.

After the reports were lodged to the police, her 19-year-old boyfriend, was also arrested in Jitra last week.
