Iran debuts new ‘Finger Amputation Device’

Iran has introduced a new machine to assist with Sharia Law inspired justice, the “Finger Amputation Device,” according to one of the country’s official news outlets.

France 24 discovered the story, the photos are from Iran’s official press agency site ISNA that were allegedly taken at a public amputation last week.

What appears like a scene the Medieval period, the blindfolded sentenced man is held in place by three men in black hoods, one of whom guides the man’s fingers into the large metal contraption, which appears to have a rotary saw-like function

France 24 reports:

According to the INSA press agency, the man shown getting his finger cut off was charged with robbery and adultery by a court in the southwestern city of Shiraz. He was also accused of being at the head of a criminal organisation…he was [also] sentenced to three years in prison and 99 whip lashes.

No independent witnesses were able to recount the circumstances under which this amputation took place. Four photos of the scene published by the press agency were widely relayed on social media networks. Strangely enough, the man’s face did not betray any signs of suffering in the photos, though it is possible that he might have been drugged.
