NCRI WOMEN'S COMMITTEE

Works extensively with Iranian women outside the country and maintains a permanent contact with women inside Iran. The Women’s Committee is actively involved with many women's rights organizations and NGO's and the Iranian diaspora. The committee is a major source of much of the information received from inside Iran with regards to women. Attending UN Human Rights Commission meetings and other international or regional conferences on women’s issues, and engaging in a relentless battle against the Iranian regime's misogyny are part of the activities of members and associates of the committee.

The Criminal Court of Lorestan Province sentenced a man and a woman to stoning on February 3, 2017. The woman was identified as S.M. (The state-run KashKan website, February 3, 2017)

The verdict was issued for the public dissemination of a video clip showing the illicit relationship between a clergy and a woman in Gerab, Koohdasht.

The private complainant for this case is the S.M.'s husband. The case also involves the dissemination of porn. The complainant has demanded maximum punishment for his wife and the man. The Criminal Court issued the stoning verdict after two sessions. 

In light of the secret recording of the clip, it is suspected that security and intelligence agencies in Lorestan were involved in setting up the case.

The stoning sentence is issued while the regime's former Chief Justice had issued a directive instructing judges to refrain from issuing the inhuman sentence of stoning.
