UN Human Rights council condemns the Iranian Regime’s use of force against unarmed fuel couriers.

Shabtabnews – In a twitter statement and a full report the UN Human Rights council strongly condemned the Iranian Regime’s recent use of force against unarmed Baluchi fuel couriers.

In the report the UN called “on the authorities to immediately restore internet access in areas that remain disconnected.”

The report also declared: ” We deplore the systematic intentional use of lethal force by Iranian border officials, especially against border couriers from the Kurdish and Baluch minorities, and call for immediate measures to end the impunity that perpetuates this practice. During 2020, a total of 59 Kurdish couriers were reported to have been killed by border officials in provinces in the north-west of Iran. We call for prompt, impartial and full investigations into all such killings, and accountability for those found to be responsible for unlawful use of force leading to death or serious injury. Victims and their families have the right to truth and redress.”
