Iranian acid-thrower to receive sadistic punishment

  • An Iranian newspaper reports that the man who poured acid on a female's face will have his eyes gouged out. 

    The court also ordered the criminal's right ear lobe and nose be cut off as part of the punishment for disfiguring the victim. 

    The NCRI referred the punishment as being "inhuman" and mentioned that the human rights abuses are going unchecked yet again. Another punishment ordered by a court last month involved a man's foot and hand be cut off. 

    Reports suggest that about 90 executions have been carried out in Iran this year.
