Iran’s supreme court has ruled that a woman must be blinded in one eye as punishment for an acid attack that left her victim sightless.
The sentence was handed down using the principle of ‘eye for an eye’ of Islamic Sharia law, the semi-official Tasnim news agency reported on Thursday.
Under Iran’s Sharia law, imposed since the 1979 Islamic revolution, qesas – or retribution – is permitted in cases where bodily injuries are inflicted.
The convicted attacker, who was not identified, was found guilty of throwing acid in the face of her victim, identified as Sima, two years ago in the city of Dehdasht.
