The Islamic Republic of Iran once again made the headlines on Wednesday this week. But this time it was not for the usually confrontation with the West and Israel over nuclear armament.
In a manner that could best be described as absurd, a local judge sentenced a man to ONE MIILION YEARS in prison for being in possession of child pornography. Mohammed Kenare, a 24-year old Iranian man was at the receiving end of the record breaking sentencing.
While one may say that a one million year sentencing was inappropriate and absurd, the judge could actually be said to be lenient as death penalty is the usual punishment for such an offence in the Islamic state.
