Majid Movahedi - Iran State Supreme Court Rejects Appeal

In 2008 I wrote my first post about Ameneh Bahrami and Majid Movahedi. If you need to know more about this story and to see how horrific Ameneh's injuries really are, go to: Her Name is Ameneh Bahrami and She Wished No Harm........So Why Harm Her?.........Iran Acid Attack. In this second post - Ameneh Bahrami - Why Acid Attacks Will Continue on Muslim Women/Children in the 21st Century and Beyond - Information is provided about the establishment of Qisa Laws as well as the Iranian Constitution and Penal Code, which are responsible for Driving Inequality of Justice for the Physically Weak in Iran.

IRAN STATE SUPREME COURT REJECTS MAJID MOVAHEDI'S APPEAL
Tuesday 3 February 2009 (Updated 19 February 2009)


Iran's State Supreme Court has upheld a sentence of blinding Majid Movahedi for throwing acid into the face of Ameneh Bahrami who spurned him, leaving her blind and disfigured, Iran state run press reported on Tuesday.

The defendant, identified only by his first name Majid, 27, was in November sentenced by a court in Tehran to be blinded in both eyes, under the Islamic eye-for-an-eye (qisas) penalty. The State Supreme Court on Monday rejected Majid's appeal and ruled that the initial verdict was lawful and could be carried out. Majid confessed to seeking revenge against his university classmate, Ameneh Bahrami, by throwing acid on her face when she refused his proposal of marriage four years ago.

Despite years of treatment in Spain, Ameneh 26, has lost sight in both eyes and still has serious injuries on her face and body.

"Take his eyes away from him to become like me," Bahrami was quoted as telling the Tehran court. "I don't demand qisas for myself. This is what the society wants. Majid must be punished so that such people know they cannot throw acid on a girl's face."

The date of Majid's execution has not yet been announced.

It's not actually an execution...

Having any of your five primary senses destroyed, is a form of execution.

His parents should have taught him as a child: a values system involving established laws, the difference between right and wrong as well as ensured he recognized and respected the Eye For An Eye, Qisa Laws before he reached 18.

His parents failed to educate Majid properly and they personally hold a degree of responsibility for this malicious and horrific act.

Fuck the courts. I'll do it to him myself. She should take the money and use it as needed, then when he's released we'll gouge his eyes out.

Does anyone know that final outcome of this case? Has the sentence been carried out yet? It is now January 2010.
