Amnesty had said in a tweet that we call on Iranian officials and lawmakers to end violence against women / girls for violence and criminalize domestic violence. They have to amend Article 301 of the Penal Code to ensure accountability for the seriousness of the offense without resorting to capital punishment.
According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Article 301 reduces punitive measures for fathers involved in ‘honor killing’.
