Recounting Amnesty International Report on Iran Regime's Human Rights Record

Recounting Amnesty International Report on Iran Regime's Human Rights Record

By Reza Shafiee

Amnesty International has published a 200-page comprehensive report on the massacre of political prisoners in Iran, 30 years after it actually took place. Its main focus is the dark days of 1988 massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in Iran.

Had the 1988 massacre been given enough international attention it deserved back then, Iranian people would not have faced unbridle human rights abuses in the years that followed. Impunity for crimes in those days, embolden the regime over the years to the extent that it is leveling the graves of the same victims all over Iran.

Iran Regime’s Systematic Abuse of Human Rights

Iran Regime’s Systematic Abuse of Human Rights

By Mahmoud Hakamian

With everyone’s focus on the U.S. sanctions on Iran and President Trump’s maximum pressure campaign, there should also be a focus on one of the most worrying aspects of the Iranian regime’s belligerence – its human rights violations.

The Iranian regime’s human rights record is appalling. It has systematically denied and abused the human rights of the Iranian people and the situation is still critical.
