The report said: "Nima is a four-year-old boy in Tehran and the second victim of child abuse [who received media attention] in the past month. Yesterday, and only ten days after he was taken to the Mofid Children’s hospital, he was released and delivered to his abusive father."
"Nima suffered injuries from severe beatings from his parents who burned various parts of his body including his genitals and caused deep bruising around his eyes. He was transfered to the hospital on May 8th. Upon arrival at the hospital, Nima told the staff that his father had burned his body," said the report.
Of course, sadly, the despicable physical abusive of children happens everywhere but where do you find a judge who hands over a victim of such savage abuse back to his abusers and yet a devoted mother like Nasrin Sotoudeh is taken away from her children and jailed for 11 years? Where in the world would you find a penal code like this:
"According to paragraph 220 of Iran’s Islamic Penal Code, if the father or father’s father kills his child or grandchild, he will not be punished for murder. Physical punishment by a parent is permitted in Iranian law."
My heart goes out to this little boy who has to suffer the consequences of a mad generation who brought about the 1979 Islamic revolution in Iran.
