The membership of the clerical regime in this committee that has been achieved through deals with other state violators of human rights in Asia, by abusing the internal mechanisms of the United Nations,through acquiring the accord of a number of countries, and by cultivating on the silence and inaction of Western countries for the sake of nuclear negotiations, is a considerable blow to the credibility, reputation and functionality of the United Nations.
Iran’s selection to the UN NGO Committee is taking place while, on the one hand, the UN General Assembly and other UN bodies have so far adopted 60 resolutions to condemn the systematic and brutal violation of human rights in Iran andon the other hand,the henchmen ruling Iran have conducted a raid on the political prisoners in these past days under the pretext that the political prisoners have connections with the UN Rapporteur.In this raid, they injured and batteredthe political prisoners and transferred them to solitary confinement with broken heads and hands, tying them to the beds with chains and preventing minimum medical treatment to the critically wounded. Meanwhile, the group executions, including that of minors, continues unabated and the number of executions during the office of Rouhani, the new President of the mullahs, has topped 700 and barbaric punishments such as cutting off the limbs, gouging out the eyes, and cutting off the ears, continue.
The clerical regime ought to be banished from the United Nations and all of its committees and bodies for its 35-years of systematic transgression against international conventions and covenants that it is a signatory to.Moreover, its dossier of atrocities needs to be referred to the International Criminal Court by the United Nations Security Council.
