Violence is not our Culture. Stoning is a grave and serious violation of International Human Rights Law.

Violence is not our Culture

Stoning breeches the International Convention of Civil and Political Rights (1966), to which Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, Nigeria and the Sudan are party signatories, amongst others. Article 6 of the ICCPR states that “in countries which have not abolished the death penalty, sentence of death may be imposed only for the most serious crimes”, of which adultery is not one. Article 14, paragraph 1 of the ICCPR states that “All persons shall be equal before courts and tribunals. In the determination of any criminal charge against him, or of his rights and obligations in a suit of law, everyone shall be entitled to a fair and public hearing by a competent, independent, and impartial tribunal established by law.” Paragraph 2 of the same Article states that “Everyone charged with a criminal offence shall have the right to be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law.” Human Planet - Web exclusive series trailer - BBC One.
