Eye for an eye, ear for an ear in Iran court

A court in Iran has ordered a man to lose an eye and an ear as punishment for blinding another man and burning his ear in an acid attack.
The man told the court he mistook the man for a former classmate who had bullied him at school.
Under Iran’s eye-for-an-eye justice code he was ordered to lose an eye and an ear and pay blood money for the injuries inflicted on the other man.
There have been other similar cases in Iran.
Last month a court upheld a sentence of blinding with acid against another man convicted of blinding his lover’s husband.
And last year a man was sentenced to be blinded in both eyes for hurling acid in the face of a university classmate who had refused his proposal for marriage.
It is unclear whether the sentences were carried out.
