New report by the UN Special Rapporteur on the widespread violations of citizens’ rights in Iran

Rissmaan –  Saturday, August 21, 2021; Javid Rahman, Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in Iran, has released his latest report on the subject, which he is scheduled to present at the next session of the UN Human Rights Council. According to the report, journalists and civil society activists were under pressure from security agencies as this year’s presidential election approached. Those who called for a boycott of the election were also detained or harassed by security forces. Javid Rahman, while expressing concern over the non-observance of the preconditions for free elections, called for fundamental reform of Iran’s electoral laws. The reporter reiterated the lack of accountability of individuals and institutions that have violated the rights of Iranian citizens, such as the violence in November 2019 and the downing of a Ukrainian PS752 aircraft. Compensation to the families of these people can in no way replace the serious prosecution and punishment of the perpetrators. He further expressed concern about the impact of international sanctions on the state of the Covid epidemic and called the government’s efforts to reduce the impact of the crisis on the social and economic life of citizens insufficient.
