Convergence of corporal punishment (Epically about children) in terms of criminal law of Iran and rules of international law
Amir Karimi, Mojgan Kasiri
Corporal punishment in Iran has been criticized; however, the rule of law and Islamic law has always allowed it. While, sentencing child offenders to death, to life imprisonment and to corporal punishment has been consistently denounced by UN Treaty Bodies and Special Procedures and by regional human rights mechanisms as a violation of human rights and International and regional human rights mechanisms and high level national courts have applied human rights standards in condemning and requiring prohibition of the sentencing of children to death, life imprisonment and corporal punishment. Now the question is that what is the impact of developments in international law in the field of criminal justice in corporal punishment in Iran law epically in the case of children? Is it possible that regulations and rules of Iranian criminal law converge and align with international rules regarding to corporal punishment or not.
