Spirit of the law

This is in response to the comment ‘Atrocious Iranian justice of Soli J. Sorabjee in his column ‘Soli Loquies in your esteemed newspaper (‘Depressing scene, IE, January 2). With due regard to the great jurist Mr Sorabjee, it must be stated that the judgment of the Iranian court was based on Qisas which is an established principle of Islamic law. The learned judges who passed the judgment are well aware of the Islamic laws as well as the contents of the international legal instruments signed by the Islamic Republic of Iran. It should also be mentioned that the Islamic Republic of Iran and its courts scrupulously follow all relevant laws and commitments.
