The medieval Islamic regime flogs a man in public

Iran Press News: Translation by Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzi.
The barbarous and medieval Islamic regime flogged a 37-year-old man in Vahdat Square in the city of Gorgan (northern Iran). The accused was charged with “the distribution and sale of alcoholic beverages”; he was also sentenced to pay a cash penalty and spend one year in prison.

One of the Islamic regime’s news agencies in an official report wrote that the 74 lashes were administered in the presence of “representatives of justice”, namely the prosecutor general of the city of Gorgan and the judge in this case.
