MEK Iran: Mullahs Regime Execute Under18
The establishment of the ‘Human Rights Headquarters’ within the Iranian judiciary is one of the regime’s surprises. Needless to say: this organization was not established to soften the regime’s harsh sentences or to monitor the regime’s inhumane behavior in the courts and prisons. This institution was not established to conduct invasive trips to the regime’s notorious jails, fight for the rights of inmates, particularly those who have been tortured, and finally expose and criticize the authorities’ inhumane deeds.
Nothing softens the regime’s harsh sentences
This institution’s duty isn’t to abolish the death penalty and declare it unconstitutional. Instead, the objective of this institution is to preserve the government’s inhumane activities by making explanations for them, justifying the regime’s actions, and assisting the dictatorship in confronting the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
This regime’s misuse of expressions is nothing new, and it is not limited to human rights. Many words, such as ‘Republic,’ ‘President,’ ‘Election,’ ‘Constitution,’ ‘Democracy,’ ‘Freedom,’ ‘Right to vote,’ ‘People’s vote,’ and so on, have become victims of the regime’s deception. Why? To make its severe fundamental system more friendly and understandable and acceptable to the international community.
Unfortunately, human rights are now politicized
As a result, the statement “Unfortunately, human rights are now politicized and used as a tool to achieve foreign policy goals” implies that the international community should turn a blind eye to the regime’s violations of human rights. Also, they should avoid causing problems for the regime and acknowledge its sovereignty.
Following the UN’s acceptance of the 68th resolution denouncing the Iranian government’s human rights violations, Kazem Gharibabadi, secretary of the Iranian regime’s Human Rights Headquarters, defended the regime’s barbaric legislation, saying:
“The resolution condemns Iran’s high rate of executions. It is important to remember that the topic of the death penalty ban is a Western phenomenon. Should the death penalty be extended to other countries and become a universal standard if it is abolished under Western law?
Mullahs: execution is the right of the government
“At least 55 countries still have laws that allow for the death punishment. Human rights and respect for the idea of cultural variety, as well as national law, are violated when Western countries strive for universality in their norms.
“The majority of people under the age of 18 who are sentenced to death are in principle sentenced to retribution,” he says, defending the killing of minorities. On December 18, the state-run daily Entekhab said, “A distinction must be made between execution and retribution; because execution is the right of the government, but retribution is the right of the victim’s family.”
“Another issue raised in this resolution is the death penalty for persons under the age of 18,” he added, revealing the regime’s inhumane nature. It is important to emphasize that there is no international requirement to ensure that people under the age of 18 are not sentenced to death.”
This is the daily tragedy with which the Iranian people are confronted. And it is because of this that the people have the right to stand up to the tyranny and fight for their freedom.
