Last week a United Nations panel rebuked Iran passing a resolution expressing "deep concern" at the "ongoing systematic violations" of human rights and fundamental freedoms.
The vote in the assembly's human rights committee was 72 in favor, 50 against with 55 abstentions. It came after an Iranian motion for no action on the resolution was narrowly defeated.I am very pleased that United nations leading by Canada, European countries, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Israel and Palau step up and recognized the Islamic Republic of Iran's brutality and violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms their own people.
The non-binding resolution expressed "very serious concern" at confirmed instances of "torture and cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, including flogging and amputations."
Sponsored mainly by Canada, European countries, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Israel and Palau, it also denounced stoning and "increased discrimination and other human rights violations against persons belonging to religious, ethnic, linguistic and other minorities" in Iran.
The text particularly mentioned attacks on the Baha'i community in the state-sponsored media as well as "increased evidence of efforts by the state to identify and monitor Baha'is and prevention of the Baha'i faith from attending university and from sustaining themselves economically."
It called on Tehran to respect fully its human rights obligations, eliminate in law and in practice amputations and flogging and other forms of torture, and other acts designated as cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.
The resolution also urged Iran to "abolish, in law and in practice, public executions and other executions carried out in the absence of respect for internationally recognized standards."
For people who doesn't have any smallest clue about abusing human rights and inhuman or degrading treatment in Iran, I added following photos from Police actions towards people which supported by law and it's everyday practice in Iran.
