Court issues death sentence for members of pervert sexual sect

IRNA – A Tehran court has decided to put to death members of a newfangled pervert sexual sect on charges of promoting prostitution and vice.

The culprits are a woman and a man who are responsible for creating the pervert sexual sect and attempting to entice people to join the illicit sect, Tehran Prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi said during a meeting of the judicial officials on Sunday.

According to the preliminary court order, the two convicts have been declared canonically outlawed and their offenses punishable by death, Jafari Dolatabadi said.

The verdict could be appealed in the country’s Supreme Court, Tehran prosecutor added.

Elaborating on another judicial case on women’s smuggling, Jafari Dolatabadi also said that the suspects are being trialed in the Islamic Revolutionary Court in the Iranian capital.
