Today, on Int'l Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women #IDEVAW2022, IOPHR stands with all women & young girls around the world, especially those who are suffering greatly at the hands of the brutal Iranian regime & commends their bravery in their fight for freedom. https://t.co/iRaXdOTd4V
With the initiatives of Iceland and Germany, and the efforts of NGOs and human rights defenders, the @UN_HRC has voted to establish a fact-finding mission to investigate human rights violation in the IRI, since the uprising that was sparked by the killing of #MahsaAmini.
At its 35th special session, the @UN Human Rights Council decided to create a new fact-finding mission to investigate "alleged #HumanRightsViolations in the Islamic Republic of #Iran related to the protests that began on 16 September 2022."
Iran's track record of widespread human rights violation & the killing of its own citizens is nothing new. People of #Iran have already expressed that the IRI does not represent them. This is a step in the right direction & we will be expecting further such actions from @EuroParl https://t.co/mzssnZ7hf3
