Iranian woman to wash dead bodies in morgue for 2 years in adultery sentence – report

An Iranian woman, who cheated on her husband, has been sentenced to lashes and two years of washing dead bodies in a morgue by a court in capital Tehran, a local news agency reported.

The 35-year-old female, who initially denied accusations, admitted her guilt after the investigators provided incontestable proof of adultery, according to the Iranian Students’ News Agency.

After the confession, her lover was also arrested and put on trial, with the court announcing its verdict in the case on Saturday.

The judges handed the woman a punishment of 74 lashes and ordered her to wash bodies in a morgue for the next two years.

The man is to get 99 lashes, according to the ruling, and will then be exiled to a remote area of the country, ISNA reported.

    By Iranian standards, that’s damn lenient.
    She’s lucky they didn’t just hang her.

    • She must be connected!

        The prosecutors had sympathy for her and so they had a whip-around at the office for her, and she got 74 lashes as donations.

  • Watchman

    “investigators provided incontestable proof of adultery” – so they found the four men witnesses or eight women witnesses who actually saw them actually in an adulterous act, as Shari’a Law requires. Or did they just find the man and the women alone in a room together and tortured her to get a confession?

    What an enlightened and progressive sentencing. For 9th century England that is. Given what’s been pouring into Europe in recent years, England will probably be handing out sentences like this within next 20 or 30 years.

    What will it take to drag these savage animals kicking and screaming, if not into the 21st century at least the 12th or maybe 15th century?

    I hope the morgue is really busy.

    No big change because she has been washing her feet to get into the Mosque to worship her dead false prophet and fake god .

    Glad she was not killed, which is the usual punishment. But remember, at one point in time not so long ago, adultery and “alienation of affection” were considered to be crimes here in Canada as well. That we do not take them as such nowadays is hardly to our credit…
