Stoning: Legal or Practised in 16 Countries and Showing No Signs of Abating

April, 2014

This brief report was created by WLUML as a submission to the UN Secretary General for the 27th session of the Human Rights Council (HRC) on the question of the death penalty.

WLUML outline the latest developmentes in the practice of stoning around the world, with specific emphasis on stoning where it is practised as a death penalty (Iran and Somalia).  WLUML call for attention to stoning as a gendered human rights violation, and to the repressive and unstable legal and political contexts which form the background to stoning.  We ask the HRC to address stoning as part of its session on the death penalty, and to address all countries where stoning remains on the law books.
