    “According to the Iranian penal code, men should be buried up to their waists and women up to their breasts. The code also states that the stones used should “not be large enough to kill the person by one or two strikes; nor should they be so small that they could not be defined as stones”. The stoning has to take place in public, reportedly in the presence of a judge, who is due to cast the first stone. Those present at the gathering continue the stoning until the pair is pronounced dead.”

    Toch lastig in de praktijk aan die code te voldoen…qua stenenkeuze…grote zachte kalk- of kleine harde riviersteen. Maar goed, geen gevallen van steniging tussen 2002 and 2006 mede door druk westerse diplomaten Teheran, Amnesty en Human Rights’ Watch. Die dus weer opgevoerd moet worden gezien recent geval.

    Overigens, 1/3 van de geëxecuteerden zijn volgens bovenstaand artikel in guardian Baluchis.Straatarme nomaden. De hippies van Iran:

    “They still inhabit some of the poorest regions in Iran and still are denied autonomy by the Iranian government. The rebellion and activism against the government seems to be continuing. However, information on the situation in these regions is limited and it is likely that more activism and rebellion against the Iranian government is taking place than is indicated by this chronology. Since 1995 there has been even less media exposure for the Baluchis.”

    Verder: een oude munt van de Baluchis:

    En voor de smulpapen onder ons een typisch Baluchi gerecht:

    Kip in krokant bladerdeeg op een bedje van kool met dipsaus.

    Gaat namelijk niks boven een lekkere knabbel na een potje stenigen.
