IRAN'S BLOOD PRICE Levelled for All

After nearly a quarter of a century of discrimination, families of non-Moslems can claim the same blood-price from killers as did Moslems. Till recently they only got half the amount allowed for Moslems.

Quoting an eight percent inflation adjustment, the Islamic regime now allows families to claim $27,800 from the killer when a member of their family is killed accidently or by murder.

Some critics state it should be have been increased by 13% - in a still less than accurate assessment of the inflation rate, which reports say are beginning to rise very quickly and are much higher than 13%
