"Corporal Mutilations" Coming to Kyrgyzstan...Maybe

As 24.kg reports, "Lawmaker Murat Juraev proposed to the Kyrgyz parliament on January 18that civil servants be subject to "corporal mutilations" if found guilty of corruption.

Juraev added that harsh measures are justified by Islamic practice and argued that such punishment should be proportional to the crime; he said that if a civil servant stole 100,000 soms ($2,500), "one finger would be chopped off," while the theft of 1 million soms would lead to "a hand...chopped off." (ERN)

(If a hand runs you poultry $25,000, Eternal Remont shudders to imagine what more -- um-- large scale corruption will fetch.)
