Iran's Human Rights Violators

On 12 April and 10 October, the EU imposed sanctions on Iranian officials responsible for grave human rights abuses.  This represents a further expression of the EU’s serious concern about the human rights situation in Iran.  All have perpetrated violations as serious as torture and applying the death penalty on vague charges and without fair trial.  A total of 61 individuals are now subject to EU asset freezes and have been denied entry to the EU.

The names of those listed and the reasons for their listing have been published in the EU’s Official Journal of 12 October and 12 April.

On 10 October, the Foreign Affairs Council of the EU announced the latest measures in a statement, that expressed the EU’s deep concern that  “the human rights situation in Iran continues to deteriorate”, called for a moratorium on the use of the death penalty and deplored the “widespread repression of Iranian citizens.

    The fundamental rights that humans have by the fact of being human, and that are neither created nor can be abrogated by any government.

    I have mentioned the definition of Human Rights which should be applicable for human being. Whether Iran rulers have the same meaning of Human Rights or not?

  2. ali soho says :

    it’s now high time to prosecute these people (they really look fearful and powerful)and punish them with the most punishment that they would ever get or rather hang them, too, like what they did to those innocent victims.
