Human Rights

Iran's justice minister, Alireza Avaie’s travel to Geneva, planned for next week, to address the United Nation's top human rights body, triggered the critics of the human rights activists and the victims of the violation of human rights in Iran.

The Iranian Resistance calls on all international human rights and women's rights advocates to take immediate and effective action to save the lives of two jailed hunger striking prisoners, Mrs. Golrokh Iraee and Mr. Sohail Arabi, who are at risk.Golrokh Iraee, a political prisoner exiled to Qarechak prison in Varamin, is in dire condition in her third week of hunger strike. Ms. Atena Daemi and Ms. Golrokh Iraee,

The Iranian Regime is brutal and cruel, but it is important to remember that despots hijacking the positions of power is something that could happen anywhere in the world, according to political scientist Dr. Majid Rafizadeh, and those in the West should learn the history of the Islamist and theocratic regime in order to recognise those patterns.

Seventy of the women arrested during the dervishes’ gathering in Golestan Haftom Ave. in Tehran, have been brutalized and taken to the Quarantine Ward 3 of the notorious Qarchak Prison in Varamin.With 40 women already detained in this ward, the addition of the new arrestees makes the ward overcrowded. There is no information available on the fate of other women arrested in the dervishes’ gathering.

The Iranian Resistance condemns in the strongest terms the planned trip by the Iranian regime’s Justice Minister Alireza Avaei, a perpetrator of the 1988 massacre, to Geneva to address the United Nations Human Rights Council. It calls for his speech to be cancelled and for Avaei to face arrest and prosecution for crimes against humanity.Avaei was a perpetrator of the 1988 massacre of political prisoners and

The UN should be helping to end impunity for human rights abuses in Iran and around the world and they can begin by trying the mullahs who took part in the 1988 Massacre in the International Criminal Court.Many of those involved in the massacre, which killed 30,000 political prisoners (mainly members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran or PMOI/MEK), are still alive and still hold positions of power within the Iranian Regime.

 

In a situation where the waves of nationwide uprising and the wave of social protests shake, the foundations of the mullahs’ regime, and the Iranian people unanimously demand overthrown of this criminal and ominous system, Khamenei is trying to delay his doomed regime by intensifying killings and executions.On Wednesday morning, February 14th, the regime’s executioners hanged ten prisoners collectively

This morning, Wednesday Feb. 14, 2018, at least six prisoners were executed in Gohardasht Prison in Karaj.The names of two of them are Farnam Farinam and Morteza Shafaghi. One of the executed was an Afghan citizen.Three prisoners who were taken to solitary confinement for execution were again temporarily returned to their cells after being tortured and witness the execution.

The Iranian Resistance calls to save political prisoners, Atena Daemi and Golrokh Iraee, who are in dire situation due to 11 days of hunger strike. The NCRI calls on international human rights and women's rights advocates to take urgent action to save the lives of the two political prisoners. The two young women are exposed to verbal abuse and harassment by prison authorities in addition to the effects of hunger strike.
