The need for referring the atrocities of the clerical regime to UN Security Council
On Friday March 24, 2017, the UN Human Rights Council adopted a resolution extending the mandate of the UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran for one more year. The resolution was adopted while the religious fascism ruling Iran and some of the major violators of human rights in every possible way tried to prevent the adoption of this resolution.
By recalling resolutions condemning the regime in this Council and the General Assembly of the United Nations and by emphasizing on the lack of regime’s cooperation with requests outlined in the above mentioned resolutions, this resolution welcomes the report and recommendations presented by the UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran and adds that: “(The Human Rights Council) expresses its serious concern over the issues raised in the report of the Special Rapporteur and also failure to allow her to travel to Iran.”
The resolution calls on the mullahs’ regime “to cooperate fully with the Special Rapporteur, allow her visit to Iran and provide all the necessary information to carry out the mandate of the Special Rapporteur of the United Nations” and demands that “the Secretary-General of the United Nations provides the necessary facilities to implement the mandate of the Special Rapporteur. “
The Iranian Resistance welcomes the extension of the mandate of the Special Rapporteur and calls on the Human Rights Council and the Special Rapporteur to refer the dossier of atrocities of the clerical regime, especially the execution of 120,000 political prisoners, to the Security Council and to bring to justice perpetrators of crimes against humanity. This is the only way to deal with a regime that is at the forefront of human rights violators in the world today, and continually and systematically violated UN resolutions.
