MEK Iran: Human Rights Crimes are Rampant in Iran
Last Friday, when the world commemorated International Human Rights Day, attention was drawn to Iran’s human rights situation. Iran has suffered from chronic human rights violations for the past four decades under the Iranian regime’s reign, and this trend shows no signs of abating now that Ebrahim Raisi has been appointed as the country’s new president by the regime’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.
Khamenei chose Raisi, and Ejei, for more execution
Khamenei was also involved in the appointment of several individuals in Raisi’s cabinet. Ebrahim Raisi, Gholam-Hossein Mohseni Ejei, and Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf are the current heads of the regime’s three branches of government, and all three men are known human rights violators in Iran, including involvement in crimes against humanity.
“Their appointment to positions at the helm of the government demonstrates the regime’s ‘new arrangement for war and repression,’” the Iran Human Rights Monitor (Iran HRM) observed. It also expresses a desire to “intensify the atmosphere of fear and repression of all forms of dissent.”Khamenei chose these men because of their prior roles in the regime’s court and security forces, as well as their previous experiences in instilling terror and persecution in order to control society.
How people are abused and tortured in Evin prison
Since the mullahs and their dictatorship came to power in 1979, Iran has had its fair share of protests, but they have escalated dramatically in recent years, owing to public outrage over the mullahs’ misdeeds and corruption, which has brought society to a boil.
Security troops and anti-riot guards invaded a sit-in rally in Isfahan organized by farmers protesting water shortages in the region in recent weeks, escalating the regime’s tendency for violently suppressing nonviolent protests. An attack with pellet guns injured around 100 demonstrators, with up to 40 of them being blinded by direct wounds to their eyes. A total of 300 demonstrators were detained. The systematic violation of inmates’ rights was also witnessed this year. In August, a released film including hacked footage from Evin prison revealed the jail’s deplorable circumstances and how inmates were abused and assaulted by officials and guards.
Iran: Until December 10 this year, 330 were executed
The most alarming news of the year was the dramatic increase in the number of Iranian detainees executed this year compared to the previous year.
“Execution is an inhumane punishment and a crime under any pretext,” Iran HRM added. For more than 40 years, Iran’s ruling regime has been committing this crime and justifying it. Iran has the world’s highest per-capita execution rate.”Along with an increase in executions, the regime’s security forces have carried out a considerable number of arbitrary killings this year. According to reports, at least 77 Iranian individuals have died as a result of indiscriminate attacks.
“At least 107 people have been injured as a result of security forces’ indiscriminate shootings,” Iran HRM claimed. Because their fate is unknown and their stories are not published, the number of victims of indiscriminate shootings and arbitrary deaths is increasing.”
