NCRI - In its annual report, the Amnesty International revealed and condemned the systematic violation of human rights in Iran and torture of political prisoners, as well as using execution as a tool for political suppression by the religious dictatorship ruling Iran; AI expressed its concerns about creating an unacceptable security conditions for 3400 residents of Camp Ashraf.

The AI’s report said that after transferring control of Camp Ashraf to Iraqi officials by the American forces, the 3400 residents of the camp are under uncertain and insecure conditions.


Regarding human rights violations by the mullahs’ regime, the annual report of Amnesty International pointed out the executions, torture, amputations, stoning to death, increased arrests, summary trials, discrimination against women, and prosecution and harassment of religious minorities, and emphasized that Iranian regime uses execution as a “political tool” for suppression of its people. “The authorities acknowledged 252 executions, but there were credible reports of more than 300 other executions. The true total could be even higher,” the annual report said.

During 2010, the legal system in Iran deteriorated even further, Amnesty said. Political opponents, women's and ethnic minority rights activists, others campaigning for human rights, lawyers, journalists and students were arrested en-masse. “Women faced continuing discrimination in law and practice” the report said. Torture and other mistreatments were usual practice in prisons. “Sentences of flogging and amputation continued to be imposed and increasingly carried out,” but Mohammad Javad Larijani, mullahs’ regime representative at the UN Human Rights Council, “insisted that the government did not consider such punishments as forms of torture,” AI’sannual report said.
