Tehran, Iran, Nov. 22 – Tehran’s public prosecutor’s office is seeking the death penalty for seven individuals accused of producing and distributing pornographic CDs which are banned in Islamic Iran.

The judiciary is currently examining three dossiers in which several individuals have been accused of producing and distributing “vulgar CDs”, Judiciary spokesman Jamal Karimi-Rad told reporters on Tuesday.

Karimi-Rad, who is also the country’s Minister of Justice, said that 35 individuals had been arrested in relation to the cases and that the prosecutor’s office is seeking the death penalty for seven of them.

“We hope to witness theses dossiers being dealt with as soon as possible so that those who try to spread corruption in society … do not feel safe”, he said.

The government of ultra-Islamist President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has vowed to enforce “the strict rules of Islam”. Before taking office as president, one of Ahmadinejad’s first decisions as mayor of Tehran was to separate men-only and women-only elevators in the city hall.
