UN General Assembly Adopts Resolution Against Human Rights Abuses in Iran

The United Nations General Assembly adopted its 64th resolution on Tuesday, December 19, against violations of human right in Iran.

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, welcomed the resolution and said, “In the case of a regime which has totally ignored dozens of UN resolutions against the unabated violations of human rights in Iran and its highest officials publicly boast of massacring political prisoners, the international community must adopt binding measures to stop the regime’s crimes. All diplomatic and commercial relations with the mullahs’ theocratic regime directly serve the interests of Khamenei’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), and must be conditioned on an end to torture and executions in Iran and a halt to the regime’s destructive meddling in the region. In the absence of a firm policy, flagrant violations of human rights in Iran and export of terrorism, fundamentalism and belligerence to the region and the world will continue.”

Iran: New Forged Cases, Heavy Sentences for Political Prisoners

The inhumane mullahs’ regime has launched new forged dossiers and issued heavy sentences against three political prisoners, in measures aimed at increasing pressure on these individuals.

Iran: Ongoing Torture, Inhumane Pressures on Political Prisoners

 Authorities in Gohardasht Prison of Karaj, west of the Iranian capital, Tehran, are refusing to respond to the demands raised by prisoners in hall 10, ward 4 of this facility.

Iran: Call to Condemn Travel Ban on Former Tehran U. Dean, Depriving Him of Medical Care

In yet another inhumane measure, Iranian regime is imposing a travel ban on Dr. Mohammad Malaki, the 84-year old former Tehran University dean who’s in need of medical care. As a result, Malaki’s life is in grave danger as he struggles with numerous difficult illnesses.

Malaki, who has spent years in Iran’s medieval prisons, must be transferred to Europe for medical attention, according to physicians. Yet Iran’s rulers have imposed this travel ban and seek to make him suffer due to his firm stance against the mullahs’ regime and refusing to succumb to their demands.
