Abstract

 

The fundamental principles from  the Qur'an regarding the rights of individuals include, but are not limited to, the following:  all free men are equal before the law and are entitled to equal protection; all decisions must conform to the Sharia; laws cannot be applied retroactively; and the accused is presumed innocent until proven guilty. The Iranian Islamic criminal justice system so as to be compatible with progressive international human rights standards will be doomed to frustration and failure, to the extent that the goals and requirements of Shari‘a law are not met.

 

Keywords: Accuse Iran international, Islamic law.
