A young woman was sentenced to death and her sentence was upheld by the Iranian Supreme Court of Justice.
The woman named Mojgan is charged with murdering her husband two years ago in July 2015 when she was 21.
The court first exonerated her from the charge of premeditated murder and then sentenced her to pay blood money for committing non-deliberate murder. The Supreme Court, however, did not uphold the verdict and ultimately sentenced her to death. (The state-run Rokna website – December 15, 2017)
81 women have been executed so far during Rouhani’s tenure.
