As for Iran defeated theft: severe punishment under Sharia lawPictolic
The Islamic Republic of Iran is a country which generally does not steal. How is this possible? The recipe is simple. According to Sharia law, theft is punishable by "cutting off hands". If the Iranians stole the first time — cut off four fingers on his right hand, so that remained untouched by the thumb and palm. Has stolen the second time, cut off half of the foot left foot. Stole a third time — a lifetime.
This applies to both petty thieves and thievery at the highest level. So it is also the question of how to eliminate theft at the state level. Of course, in such circumstances, the tourists can not worry about leaving belongings, money and documents in your hotel room, jostling in a crowded Bazaar or gazing at the sights — in the pocket nobody can get. No fools, no be deprived of the right hand not want to.
And here is how the process of punishment of the thief.
(Caution! The material presented in the series may seem unpleasant or intimidating.)
Everything is done publicly, on the Central square and using a special device, which was presented in 2013.
Criminal to numb the limb and blindfolded. Two police officers hold him to't get out, the third carries out the execution.
The device is a guillotine driven by a conventional electric motor. Can cut off the fingers and hands, and feet, depending on the penalty imposed.
Procedure on the guillotine lasts a fraction of a second. The process is controlled by the physician, the offender immediately help to stop the blood and close the wound.
All punishment, including the death penalty, held publicly, to achieve the maximum effect of influence on other people and make them think many times before committing a crime.
Savagery? The savagery. But there really is almost no theft and the very low level of corruption.
By the way, not only arresting ordinary criminals: recently the prison has placed former Vice-President of Iran Mohammad Reza Rahimi in connection with the group of government officials involved in extortion of money from businessmen and their subsequent laundering. All behind bars on this case hit 11 people.
