A young Iranian man is facing execution after a court judged him a 'hardened and incorrigible drinker," Iranian daily Etemad Melli reported. A section of Tehran's criminal court is currently deciding whether the 22-year-old man, known as Mohsen, should be executed.
Mohsen was arrested after allegedly being caught for the fourth time in possession of alcohol and in a state of drunkenness. He has already been sentenced to a flogging.Article 179 of Iran's penal code punishes with the death sentence anyone caught drinking alcohol more than three times.
