"Adultery should not be criminal offence at all"

"The Working Group on the issue of discrimination against women in law and in practice was established by the Human Rights Council in 2010 to identify ways to eliminate existing discrimination in law and practice, and helping States to ensure greater empowerment and autonomy for women in all fields. Recently, the Group urged Governments to repeal laws which criminalize adultery and give rise to punishments ranging from the imposition of fines to flogging and death by stoning, or hanging."
