Family Law: Judiciary to Seek Punishment for Fathers in Murder of Children


The judiciary plans to seek a revision of the article 220 of the penal code, which exempts fathers and grandfathers from punishment in murder of their children and grandchildren. The law, based on Islamic rule that holds father’s custody of his children absolute and unalienable, had created problems for the judiciary, especially in some southern provinces where young tribal girls are usually punished by death in the hands of their fathers for any violation of family rules, Tehran-based lawyer Mohammad-Hossein Aghasi tells Radio Farda.
