There has become a debate about the maintenance of death penalty or its
abolishment, as the majority of countries, especially the European countries,
have agreed to abolish it, while there are countries that have applied this
penalty in serious crimes, but there are a few countries that still apply it in
many crimes in large number every year, including Iran that sets a record in
the death penalty.
Iran applies the death penalty in various crimes, including murder, apostasy,
sexual crimes like rape, enmity, and corruption on earth, which includes
committing crimes against the health and physical integrity of the society’s
members, or any crime against the interior and external security of the country,
spreading lies, arson attack, vandalism, causing serious damage to the safety
of the people, or public and private property, or spreading corruption, also Iran
applies the death penalty against crimes that aren’t stipulated in its laws, such
as drugs trafficking.
