It goes from bad:

Iran’s Islamic penal code, which is a parallel system to its civic code, says murder charges can be dropped if the accused can prove the killing was carried out because the victim was morally corrupt.


To outright insane:

This is true even if the killer identified the victim mistakenly as corrupt. In that case, the law requires “blood money” to be paid to the family. Every year in Iran, a senior cleric determines the amount of blood money required in such cases. This year it is $40,000 if the victim is a Muslim man, and half that for a Muslim woman or a non-Muslim.

Radical implies they follow a radical version of Islam but these guys aren't radical Islamists, they are corrupt politicians.

Quote:
“Such laws are not acceptable in our society today,” said Hossein Nejad Malayeri, the brother of Gholamreza Nejad Malayeri, who was killed by the group in Kerman. “That means if somebody has money, he can kill, and claim the victim was corrupt.”


I do believe Islam permits the execution of the following:
Quote:
At the same time, he laid out examples of moral corruption that do permit bloodshed, including armed banditry, adultery by a wife and insults to the Prophet Muhammad.

However, none of the mentioned murder--yes, murders--satisfy these Islamic restrictions on execution.

Quote:
The last victims, for example, were a young couple engaged to be married who the killers claimed were walking together in public.
In the most conservative interpretation of the Quran, the punishment for that is for the man to whipped/physically punished and exiled (not sure for how long). It is not execution.

That was a murder which if your are in Iran you can get away with if you have cash and disgrace the name of Islam at the same time.
