Jun. 19, 2002 MIDEAST NOTES: Killing her costs less than killing him By REGIONAL MEDIA, TRANSLATED BY SHIRA GUTGOLD
All murderers in Iran will now have to pay the same "blood money" if they want to avoid execution, regardless of their victim's religion, a government source said.
However, the penalty for killing a woman will remain half that for a man.
At present the dieh - or blood money - is set at $20,000 for killing a Muslim man, and half that for the murder of a Jew, a Christian or a Zoroastrian.
The decision to hike the price for religious minorities, which has to be approved by supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, came after the representatives of Iran's non-Muslim communities protested at the "discrimination."
