What Iran and Israel have in common

Last month in this post I noted an article reporting that the Israeli Justice Ministry had proposed the development of sentencing guidelines, and that "High Court judges, including High Court president Aharon Barak, are said to strongly support the proposal."  Now I see, according to this news account, similar support for sentencing guidelines in Iran:

An Iranian newspaper commented here Sunday on the country's judicial system calling for major sentencing reforms in the field. Referring to the latest comments of the Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Shahroudi who has recently issued new sentencing guidelines to judicial officials, prosecutors and judges, the 'Iran News' welcomed the guidelines urging for adoption of more sensible sentencing guidelines.
