Iran parliament softens drug death penalty laws

wowwwww this is big news !!!!!

Iran parliament softens drug death penalty laws


The amendment will apply retroactively, thus commuting the sentences for many of the 5,300 inmates currently on death row for drug trafficking. Under the new bill, the punishment for those already convicted and given the death penalty or life in prison, other than those meeting the new execution requirements, will 
be commuted to up to 30 years in jail and a cash fine.

The bill must still be approved by the conservative-dominated Guardian Council.
