JUSTICE IRANIAN STYLE – The two young men, as can be seen in the photograph, are led by their executioners. Their crime? Robbery. The CCTV Footage, used as evidence by the court was posted on YouTube, which you may view above. WARNING CONTAINS GRAPHIC VIOLENCE.
The Iranian Judicial System takes an extremely hard line when it comes to crime and the courts, in this instance, considered their actions were against God and therefore an execution order was given.
In front of a crowd of just over 300 onlookers the executioners lead them to the hangman’s noose and a minute later both were dead.
The pair, Mafiha, aged 23, and Sarvari, 20, were arrested after a YouTube video, in December 2012, clearly showed the two of them attacking a man on the streets of Tehran, with a machete and after sentencing Iran’s Head of Judiciary, Sadeq Larijani, made a statement in which he said that the security and safety of our people is more important than even the daily bread we eat and we must protect our citizens.
The two were not alone in this crime and the court rule that the accomplices each serve a sentence of 10 years and receive 74 lashes.
There are no doubt many people who only see this type of action, by the Iranian Government, as a way to fuel their belief that Iran is barbaric country and full of evil people. However, when you look at somewhere like the UK most of us might consider it to be a Utopia of social care and harmony – unfortunately this is nowhere near the truth.
The stark reality is that the UK has the highest violent crime levels in all of Europe and by no small margin either – a recent article Britain: A Violent Society Out of Control, clearly outlines the problems the United Kingdom has due to its overly liberal justice system where criminals are summarily sent back on the streets to commit more crime with almost impunity.
While the actions of the Iranian judicial system may appear harsh this does achieve a balance in social order, it ensure that people like Mafiha and Sarvari, will never again commit such a heinous crime against another Iranian citizen.
I am an advocate for the reinstatement of both Corporal and Capital Punishment in the United Kingdom. Since the last execution took place we have had the onslaught of the liberal reform which has resulted in a country where violent crime is not only rapidly increasing but where the judicial system is powerless to provide any punishment – the criminals are simply let loose on the streets to commit more crime. Add this to the mix of the liberal immigration laws, whereby we are simply importing more criminals and it is little wonder why the United Kingdom has such an appalling record for violent crime.
It was interesting as I researched this news article as I visited a number of online news sources and the comments, mainly from British Citizens, was not one of calling the Iranian’s barbaric but one of calling upon the UK Government to ‘take a leaf out of their book’.
We cannot have justice in the UK while we kowtow to the criminal with a liberal stance. What Britain needs is a government who will remove the barriers to justice and allow the courts to punish criminals for their crimes and if that means the Birch, Imprisonment or even the Death Penalty then so be it.
Justice can only be attained and maintained by a just system.
Do you think Iran goes too far or do you think that justice is served to the criminals? Leave your comments below.
