Iranian man sentenced to having his eyes gouged out, right ear and nose cut off after hurling acid in young girl’s face, court rules

Perpetrator will also have an ear and his nose cut off, opposition group says. President Hassan Rohani won a surprise election last year, after pledging more openness with the West. But an increased use of the death penalty has dashed hopes the country’s will improve its human rights record, the UN said. An Iranian man who poured acid on a young girl’s face should be punished by having his eyes gouged out and his right ear and nose cut off, an Iranian court ruled, according to an opposition group. The group, the National Council of Resistance of Iran, said the man was convicted last October of intentionally attacking the girl with acid, causing her to lose her eyesight and right ear. Last month, another Iranian man was condemned to have one hand and one foot cut off as punishment for an unspecified crime, the state-run Mehr news agency reported. The national council said that Iran’s high court has publicly defended cutting off body parts and removing eyes as part of the country’s judicial system. At least 80 people and perhaps as many as 95 have been executed in Iran this year, a surge in the use of the death penalty that has dampened hopes for human rights reforms under President Hassan Rohani, the United Nations said last month. Rohani, who won a surprise election last year on a platform of more openness with the West, clinched an interim deal in November with world powers over Iran’s nuclear program. In September, dozens of political prisoners were released, raising hopes that he would also improve human rights. “There were some encouraging signs last year where political prisoners were released … But it appears at least in the past seven weeks that in fact executions have been scaled up,” UN human rights spokeswoman Ravina Shamdasani told a news briefing. “We regret that the new government has not changed its approach to the death penalty and continues to impose capital punishment for a wide range of offences. We urge the government to immediately halt executions and to institute a moratorium.” Last year Iran executed between 500 and 625 people, including at least 28 women and two juveniles, Shamdasani said.

Journalist Lidia Pankiv, 24, had been one of the protesters out on the streets campaigning against corruption and demanding a change the day she met police officer Andrei Lidia Pankiv, 24, was speaking on the phone to one of her friends during a stand-off in Kiev, and was forced to shout out her phone number within earshot of the policeman. She had been expecting her friend to call her back, but instead she got a text message from an unknown number. “Despite all the commotion I remembered your phone number when you gave it to your friend. I don’t even know your name,” the text message read. A young Ukrainian woman protester who fell in love with a police officer after she and a group of female friends faced him unarmed in the capital Kiev “I was standing in the night with a shield in front of you. When you stopped us from advancing, I realised that I want to marry you. Andrei.” Pankiv did not know who the message was from, but agreed to meet him in an effort to convince him he was on the wrong side of the protests. “I was really surprised at the message and don’t know why I agreed to meet him, I thought perhaps it might be possible to convince him that the side he was on was wrong and I certainly didn’t expect to find myself falling in love with him,” she said. “But when I saw him when I started to speak to him – that is what happened.” Andrei has not revealed his last name for fear of losing his job. The couple met in December but it did not become well-known until Pankiv appeared on a television panel show to talk about her romance.
