From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48:

Iniquitous \In*iq"ui*tous\, a. [From Iniquity.]
   Characterized by iniquity; unjust; wicked; as, an iniquitous
   bargain; an iniquitous proceeding.
   [1913 Webster]

         Demagogues . . . bribed to this iniquitous service.

   Syn: Wicked; wrong; unjust; unrighteous; nefarious; criminal.

   Usage: Iniquitous, Wicked, Nefarious. Wicked is the
          generic term. Iniquitous is stronger, denoting a
          violation of the rights of others, usually by fraud or
          circumvention. Nefarious is still stronger, implying a
          breach of the most sacred obligations, and points more
          directly to the intrinsic badness of the deed.
          [1913 Webster]
