Over the past 44 years, Iranian regime has suppressed, tortured, and killed its people. Iranian regime has been stealing wealth of its nation while Iranian people has been struggling with poverty and high unemployment rates.
We, the Ahwazi Centre for Human Rights (ACHR), concerns, while Ahwazi Arabs, non-Persian nations within so call “Iran” face continues oppression and discrimination, the most significant human rights issues included a high number of executions for false confession and false crimes without fair trials of individuals. Torture; harsh and life-threatening prison conditions; arbitrary detention and imprisonment; of hundreds of political prisoners, are just few examples of how the Iranian regime violates the human rights.
We are calling upon Mr. Javaid Rehman the United Nations special rapporteur for the situation of human rights in Iran and Mrs Agnes Callamard the UN special rapporteur on extra Judicial execution to intervene and stop the Iranian criminal regime from executing innocent prisoners that were arrested without any legal warrant.
