Human Rights Violations Monthly Report: June-July 2010

Aug 24, 2010
In the years following the Islamic Revolution in Iran the country went through such tumult that human rights violations gradually became the foremost concern for international organizations.

During this suppressive period, hundreds of students, women’s right activists, workers, human rights activists, and politicians were arrested and imprisoned. All of these groups were condemned to heavy sentences and many people had to go through long prison terms and flee the country.

The Prisoners’ Rights

 Sep 23, 2010

By Mehrangiz Kar
When we speak of prisoner’s rights, it means that we have left behind the age of dungeons and branding bodies and have caught up with civilization and the culture of human rights.
