Iranian chocolate thief 'to have hand chopped off'
16-Oct-2010 (5 comments)

TEHRAN — An Iranian court has condemned a man convicted of robbing chocolates and cocoa from a Tehran pastry shop to have a hand chopped off, Fars news agency reported on Saturday.

Judge Mohammad Reza Giyuki, quoted in the report, also sentenced the 21-year-old man, whose identity was not revealed, to six months in prison for damaging the shop and another six months for "disobeying police."

Fars said police arrested him on May 29 and found in his possession 900 dollars worth of cash, three pair of gloves, chocolate and cocoa.

The Islamic sharia laws of Iran lay down amputation as punishment for repeated thefts.

Cases of amputation have been increasing due to a rise in robberies on the back of growing poverty in Iran. Last week, Tehran amputated a hand of a man found guilty of two robberies in the northeastern holy city of Mashhad.

Why bring in Race Mr. kazem0574

by Abarmard on

This is being done by IRANIANS inside. This is barbaric act done by Iranian people. If one takes the rules of a backward ideology, that person is to blame no the race they took it from.

Take other races and nations out of this, this is our problem. We have become comfertable to believe that nothing bad is Iranian, like Basijis who beat the young were imported from Lebanon!

No it's us, a class within our own society.

Who have stolen $billions of Iranian money and slashed it in their foreign bank accounts for when the islamist regime is toppled?

Which part of their anatomy should be chopped off I wonder...

In Terms of medicine, Arab and islam are like a cancer for a peacefully world, it promotes not only fanaticism, but also affects other cells vigorously, thus, removal of such malignant cancer is a must.

These pigs in IRI should be rejected from humanity. Not just from Iran but the whole human race must reject them. And their barbaric religion and "sharia" law. 

There are few creatures lower than the IRI and its Mollahs.
