NOTE: As I mentioned in my previous column, I am strongly against the way the Iranian government rules like their nuclear weapons program but if we just ignore Iran for imposing the death sentence for homosexuality, religious conversion and many others, and just focus on the way they execute people for the crimes of terrorism, drug trafficking and murder, they are doing an excellent job of fighting crime. If you have judges like them, scumbags in your country will be afraid and crime will fall. Judges like him can protect the innocent people in the country and punish the guilty. In this post, I am just giving some quotes which I agree with him.
Ayatollah Sadegh Ardeshir Larijani (Persian: صادق اردشیر لاریجانی; born 12 March 1960, Najaf, Iraq) is an Iranian cleric, politician and current head of the judicial system of Iran. Larijani served as one of the 12 members of the Guardian Council of the Islamic Republic of Iran for eight years. Described as "relatively junior" or "inexperienced cleric" with "close ties to Iran's military and intelligence agencies", he was appointed head of the judicial system of Iran by supreme leader Ali Khamenei on August 15, 2009.
“The execution of certain groups of social criminals is a commitment to moral values.”
"To those who commit rape and think it's a momentary action, we say, you are sure to be executed. Also those who commit armed robbery, they should not think that they can easily escape this matter."
“If a robber pulls out a weapon but does not actually steal anything, still their legal sentence will be the death penalty.”
"Armed robbers and rapists have been hanged in public, and in the coming year our efforts will become even more serious." He added that there will be no mercy in carrying out such sentences.
"Certain delays in confronting hoodlums, rapists and disturbers of people's peace and security would no longer provide a safe corner for these criminals, and the judiciary must act quickly and carefully to process these cases."
"Armed robbers and rapists have been hanged in public, and in the coming year we will crack down harder."
"Delays in the proceedings against batterers, rapists and rioters are no longer allowed to offer a secure niche for these criminals, and justice must deal with these cases quickly and meticulously."
