NGOs in Geneva seek respect for human rights in Iran

NCRI - Human rights defenders at the UN Human Rights Council session in Geneva on Friday urged the United Nations and its member states to pressure the Iranian regime to halt executions and other flagrant human rights abuses.

The meeting was held on the sidelines of the 30th session of the Human Rights Council.

Speakers urged Western governments in particular to base any improvement of ties with the regime in Iran on an end to human rights violations, including torture and execution.

“The mullahs' regime in Iran continues to execute more of its citizens per capita than any other U.N. member state and is the biggest executioner of juveniles,” said Dr. Alejo Vidal-Quadras, President of the International Committee In Search of Justice (ISJ) and a former Vice-President of the European Parliament.
