A resolution condemning “grave and gross human rights violations” in Iran was adopted by the Third Committee of the UN General Assembly on Wednesday, November 19th.
The 67th resolution condemning human rights violations in Iran was adopted by 79 votes in favor, 32 against and 64 abstentions.
The resolution was proposed by Canada and supported by a number of countries, including the United States, Britain, Germany and France.
The resolution included “Increasing the death penalty, especially the execution of political prisoners,” “Imposing the death penalty on minors,” “Increasing pressure on religious minorities, including members of the Baha’i community,” and “Violation of the rights of political prisoners, including non-compliance.” “Their access to a lawyer” and “obtaining forced confessions” have been expressed in the Islamic Republic.
The resolution calls on the government of the Islamic Republic to release all those whose detention is considered arbitrary under international law.
The resolution also calls on the Islamic Republic to end harassment and discrimination against dissidents and minorities, arbitrary detention, and torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, as well as the punishment of peaceful protesters and political prisoners.
After the resolution was adopted, the Canadian Foreign Ministry announced that it would continue to commit itself to defending human rights and would continue to work with the international community to hold the Islamic Republic accountable for its actions.
The UN Secretary-General in a report in September this year called “repeated and serious violations” of human rights in Iran “a matter of serious concern.”
In the last two months, and especially after the sudden execution of Navid Afkari, the Iranian wrestling champion, the human rights situation in Iran has received more and more attention in the world and the officials of the Islamic Republic have been repeatedly warned.
Also The Kurdistan Human Rights Association said that last month, six border workers (Kolber) were shot dead by Iranian military forces, 27 Kurdish civil activists were arrested and six prisoners were executed.
Since the beginning of this year, 58 kolbers have been killed, 217 Kurdish civil activists have been arrested by Iranian security forces, and 37 Kurdish prisoners have been executed.
