The UN Third Committee’s Adoption of the resolution
citing human rights abuses in Iran, for the 64th times
November 14, 2017
Organization of Iranian American Communities – US (OIAC) welcomes the 64th U.N. resolution condemning the violations of human rights in Iran adopted today by the UN Third Committee. The time has come for the international community and especially the UN Security Council to undertake effective measures against the religious fascism ruling Iran for its systematic violations of human rights in Iran, particularly the brutal executions that are carried out unabated, and many in public.
If adoption of resolutions after resolutions, years after years has not swayed the Iranian ruler to change course, why do we think this time will be different? As everybody knows there has to be accountability and consequence in response to all cases of serious human rights violations if we anticipate living in a world that honor human dignity and adheres to the Charter of Human Rights.
One of the most brutal crime in the recent history of Iran is the massacre of political prisoners in which many clerical regime’s agencies and senior officials were involved and complicit. Even today, these officials have the audacity to defend it and have so far remained immune from prosecution. Therefore, the international community faces a great test in investigating this great crime against humanity and prosecuting its perpetrators.
Experience has proved that Iran’s ruler will not change course until they experience the consequences which is why OIAC urges the U.N. to create a Commission of Inquiry to investigate Iran 1988 massacre with a view towards bringing the perpetrators to justice if we want to see respect for human rights to be taken seriously.
