Iran introduces capital punishment for the production and sale of porn. Such a bill was approved on June 13 by the Iranian parliament. 148 deputies of the Mejlis voted for this law, only 5 voted against. The law states that "producers of pornographic materials and basic elements are recognized as corrupting the world and will be punished accordingly." The term "corrupting the world" is taken from the Koran and is one of the most serious crimes from the point of view of the Sharia. According to Iranian laws, the death penalty is applicable for such crimes, NEWSru.co.il reports.
