In a conference held at the United Nations headquarters in Geneva on Friday, international human rights experts called for an end to the impunity enjoyed by Iranian regime officials in regard to atrocious human rights conditions in Iran, most specifically those involved in the summer 1988 massacre.
News: Iran human rights
Numerous human rights groups with Consultative Status at the United Nations Human Rights Council have called on UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet to support the launch of an independent fact-finding mission into Iran’s 1988 massacre of thousands of political prisoners.
The Iranian regime’s authorities are denying political prisoner Majid Assadi access to medical care for his severe ailments.
Assadi suffers from Ankylosing spondylitis (AS), a rheumatism disease that affects the spine, ulcers, inflammation in his vision network, inflammation of his intestines, and digestive problems that have intensified because of the deprivation of medical care.
Iran Human Rights Monitor has issued their monthly report into human rights abuses in Iran and, as always, it makes for disturbing reading. The August report is filled with examples of a brutal clampdown on Iranian society, in the midst of various economic, social, and political crises, in an attempt to silence dissent.
