IRAN: REPRESSION OF THOSE SEEKING TRUTH AND JUSTICE FOR 1980S KILLINGS NEEDS TO STOP

Amnesty


Amnesty -
 In this joint statement, 20 human rights groups call on the Iranian authorities to stop the harassment, intimidation and prosecution of human rights defenders seeking truth and justice on behalf of individuals who were summarily executed or forcibly disappeared during the 1980s and their families. Over the past few months, several human rights defenders have been subjected to harassment, reprisals or prosecution on vague national security-related charges for their peaceful efforts to learn the fate and whereabouts of their loved ones.
