Changes in Iran - level 2, A11

Changes in Iran - level 2, A11

20-02-2012 23:00

There was a law in Iran which said, “If you are younger than 18 years and you steal something, you will go to prison or you could be killed.” The same rule was when you were drinking a lot of alcohol. The law also said, “If you had sex with somebody else other than your wife or husband, you would be killed by stones. If you are homosexual, you would be killed too.”

Other countries didn’t like this law and they wanted Iran to change it and now the law is going to change but only a little.

The law will not be so hard. For example it will still be a crime to have sex with your girlfriend or boyfriend. So if you want to have sex in Iran, you have to be married first.
