Iran Supreme Court Issues Man Gouging of Eye Punishment

Iran Human Rights (MAR 24 2016): Iranian Supreme Court judges have reportedly ordered the removal of the eye of a 28-year-old man who has only been identified as Saman.

The blinding punishment is part of a retribution sentence issued by the Supreme Court to Saman for allegedly blinding another man during a street fight.

According to a report by Shahrvand, an Iranian daily newspaper, Saman was 23 years old at the time he was allegedly involved in a physical altercation with Jalal, who was 25 years old at the time. During his interrogations, Saman reportedly claimed that he had unintentionally blinded Jalal with a metal rod.

The date of implementation of the retribution sentence for Saman has not been announced by Iranian authorities.
