Nouraei & Mostafavi Law Offices- 28 July 2022-Tehran- Iran- In a rare judgement a violator of a standard regulation has been sentenced to write an article on the advantages of maintaining legal standards and write the sentence: “I honour the law’’ 500 times.

Quoting the director of public relations of the Iran National Standards Organization (INSO) and quoting the acting governor of Khorasan Razavi Province, Fars News Agency reported that the builder of a commercial tower in the north eastern city of Mashhad (capital of Khorasan Razavi) had been brought to justice for installing nonstandard elevators in the building. The court, instead of sentencing the culprit to penalties and imprisonment, ordered in the judgment that he must install standard lifts in the building, apologize for violating the law, prepare an article in praise of standard rules and write the sentence ‘’I honour the law’’5 hundred times.
