A letter from the International Organisation to Preserve Human Rights (IOPHR) to Professor Javaid Rehman – the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the human rights situation in the Islamic Republic of Iran

Shabtabnews – IOPHR in a letter addressed to Professor Javaid Rehman – the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the human rights situation in the Islamic Republic of Iran stated that ” in the absence of serious and practical action at the international level to address this blatant and undeniable violation of human rights in Iran, the growing trend of executions in Iran over the past two years has only increased. Especially under the Presidency of Ebrahim Raisi who is personally accused of crimes against humanity due to his participation in the massacre of tens of thousands of innocent people in the 1980s. “

The letter also stated that : “There are also reports that the ruling regime in Iran is using executions to intimidate ethnic, and religious diversity. It has been suggested that the extremist Shiite government is making extensive use of executions, as a means of suppressing religious and ethnic diversity, especially against Sunni citizens, and establishing terror within the Sunni areas and community. Accordingly, the IOPHR, while appreciating and thanking you for your efforts in raising global awareness of the deplorable human rights situation in Iran, once again calls on you to focus on international efforts and plan for a joint action to protect human rights; by taking further steps in forcing the Iranian regime to uphold the most fundamental right human rights of its citizens. Moreover, it is important to note that the increase in the number of executions in Iran, also reflects the increasing efforts of the Iranian citizens to realize their citizenship rights, so it is worthwhile for the international community to take practical steps to support these efforts.”
