UN General Assembly adopts resolution censuring rights abuses in Iran



UN General Assembly adopts resolution censuring rights abuses in Iran
At its official summit in New York on Monday, December 17, 2018, the UN General Assembly ratified the 65th resolution of the UN condemning the Iranian regime's human rights abuses by 84 favorable votes.
In this resolution, the highest international human rights authority condemns the systematic violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms of the people of Iran by the regime and the alarmingly high number of executions, public executions, as well as torture and cruel treatment in prisons.
The resolution of the UN General Assembly calls for the suspension of deliberate deprivation of prisoners from access to medical treatment and calls for the end to "widespread restrictions on the right to freedom of opinion and expression and the right to freedom of assembly" and to stop the "harassment and intimidation" of political opponents, human rights defenders, defenders of the rights of minorities and women, workers, students and environmental activists.
The resolution emphasizes the need to eliminate all forms of discrimination and other violations of human rights against women and girls in Iran and minorities and the necessity of visiting the UN special rapporteur from Iran. "The General Assembly decides to continue to review the human rights situation in Iran."
Maryam Rajavi, welcomed the adoption of the 65th UN resolution condemning the systematic and grave violations of human rights in Iran.
Mrs. Rajavi, the president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, reiterated, “Although the resolution fails to address many aspects of the inhumane crimes committed by Iran's religious fascism, it leaves no doubt that this regime is the most brutal and aggressive violator of human rights in today's world. The inaction of the international community against the crimes of this regime has emboldened it to continue and spread these crimes, the latest example of which has been the barbaric raids on the residences of the Steel workers of Ahvaz and the arrest of dozens of those who demand their minimum rights.”

Mrs. Rajavi urged the international community to investigate the crimes of the Iranian regime, especially the 1988 massacre, and refer the dossier of these crimes to the UN Security Council. Ali Khamenei, Hassan Rouhani and other officials responsible for these crimes must be brought to justice.
On Thursday, December 13, 2018, the European Parliament passed a resolution on human rights abuses in Iran. Violations of human rights, the status of political and civil activists, human rights defenders and the massive popular protests were reviewed. The European Parliament also called for the immediate and unconditional release of Nasrin Sotoudeh.
