An Iranian woman is seeking a sentence for her attacker more in line with something out of a torture manual than natural justice.
Four years ago, a spurned suitor poured a bucket of sulfuric acid over her head, leaving her blind and disfigured.
Late last month, an Iranian court ordered that five drops of the same chemical be placed in each of her attacker's eyes, acceding to Bahrami's demand that he be punished according to a principle in Islamic jurisprudence that allows a victim to seek retribution for a crime. The sentence has not yet been carried out.
Seems like a very barbaric sentence, but given the crime, pretty reasonable from her perspective. Why not an acid bath?
