Iran: Crimes & Impunity, a panel during the 24th session of UN Human Rights Council

 

 

Iran: Crimes & Impunity

 

Side Event at United Nations 

Thursday, 12 September 2013, 16:00 – 18:00

Room XXII, Palais de Nations

Geneva

 

A panel of five leading experts on Iran will discuss its most significant human rights violations: the 1988 massacre of political prisoners, rape especially of women in Iranian prisons, the “Declaration of Holy War” by the Ayatollah Khomeini in 1979 against Kurdish people and the massacre of civilians, as well as Iranian state-sponsored terrorism outside Iran.

Canada’s Parliament courageously adopted a unanimous consent motion on June 5, 2013, recognizing the massacre of political prisoners in Iran in 1988 as crimes against humanity under international law.

 

On the panel are: Ms. Shadi SADR, founder, Justice for Iran, Dr. Karen PARKER, IED Chief Delegate to the United Nations, USA, and founder, Association of Humanitarian Lawyers, Ms. Diane Ala’I, UN Representative of the Baha’i International Community, Mr. Gianfranco FATTORINI, UN Permanent Representative of Mouvement contre le Racism et pour l’Amitié entre les Peuples (MRAP).

 

They will debate ways to bring these issues to the attention of the Human Rights Council, the International Criminal Court and other international organizations, and most importantly, to prosecute the perpetrators of these crimes.

 

Hosted by

Mr. Taimoor Aliassi, Association for Human Rights in Kurdistan of Iran-Geneva (KMMK-G)

Dr. Karen Parker, IED Chief Delegate to the United Nations, USA

 

Light refreshments will be served
