Man who beheaded his wife in Iran, only got 8 years in prison

Iranians are criticising an eight-year jail sentence given to a man who beheaded his wife, saying the punishment is far too lenient.

Iran’s judiciary announced on Wednesday that a man who beheaded his 17-year-old wife last year, has been sentenced to just eight years and two months in prison.

Sajjad Heydarnawa, whose name is also spelled Sajjad Heydari in English language media, was found guilty of murder, assault and disturbing public order.

Iran’s state media, the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA), reported last February that Mona Heydarnawa, sometimes styled Mona Heydari, had been murdered in a so-called “honour killing”, and that she had been married to Sajjad since she was 12.

The IRNA added that a video had been circulating on social media showing her husband, Sajjad Heydarnawa, walking in the provincial capital of Ahvaz smiling and carrying his wife’s head.
