NCRI Staff

NCRI - In spite of international criticism over the treatment of protesters, human rights abuses under the Iranian Regime have dramatically increased in the past month.

Iran: Human Rights Violations Continue

NCRI Staff

NCRI - Iran Human Rights Monitor has compiled a report detailing the human rights situation in Iran for the month of January 2018.

Last month, there was a huge crackdown on protesters. At the end of December, the people of Iran took to the streets because of the poor economic situation that is caused by the regime’s mishandling of the nation’s wealth. The protests quickly turned into anti-government demonstrations. The security forces violently supressed the protesters and there were at least 50 deaths. The report also indicates that more than 8,000 protesters were arrested.

Civil Society Urges UN to Launch Commission of Inquiry Into Iran’s 1988 Massacre in Order to End Impunity and Prevent the Same Fate for Detained Protesters

 On 1 February 2018, a civil society hearing in Geneva heard witnesses and legal experts and offered an adjudication of the 1988 massacre of political prisoners in Iran. The hearing was the first of its kind by NGOs in Geneva, and it urged immediate action by the UN to address the current wave of mass arrests and killings in Iranian jails following the recent anti-government protests.

International civil society and NGOs urged the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights to establish a commission of inquiry to investigate the months-long massacre during which the Islamic Republic of Iran executed an estimated 30,000 political prisoners, mostly activists of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).
