IRAN WATCH CANADA:
So , as we can see ,instead of arresting the acid attackers on Iranian women ,regime is arresting the messengers ,in this case the journalists .
Islamic Regime's Parliament in Iran a Regime Made Parliament .!
These parliament is one of the worse parliament ever the Iranian people saw. Most of these MP's are not elected by the people in their riding's as the regime try's the people to believe them they are. Regime had learned during the last 35 years of its reign , how to engineer the elections and how to create an atmosphere of fear among the people to keep running the country. This parliament is headed by Ali larijani one of the Larijani brothers ( Mohammad Sadegh Larijani is the head of Judiciary and Javad Larijani is the head of commission on Human rights )who are well known for corruptions ( Land transfer and money laundering )and all have biased stand against the interest of the Iranian people and Iran . Iranian people now call this parliament as a regime made parliament , This Parliament is even against Hassan Rohani's Government which is a so called moderate one . to see why this parliament is against the people interest is ...because just today, the MP's voted No to the President's Minister nominees for Science & education ( out of 246 MP's 160 MP's voted No )
The majority of the current MP's also voted No to the last Minister nominees of president , that is because these ministers are trying to disclose the great scandal which was going on during Ahmadinajad's Government in that ministry . So the ministry has no minister since Hassan Rohani became president . So , by saying No to these ministers , the Current conservative &fundamentalist MP's wants to stop this minister for further disclosing about the scandal -which is a huge scandal about students ( Perhaps son or daughters of officials) who did not pass the ministries standards to receive free education paid by Government to study inside and outside of Iran.
In recent week this parliament also approved a bill which emphasized more about dress code and encouraged radical Muslim's to be vigilant on those women breaking the dress code ,
which resulted these radicals to pouring acid on women in the city of Isfahan.
In short People have no interest in this parliament and does not expect a major change in the future .
We are shocked and saddened by the execution on 25 October of Ms. Reyhaneh Jabbari, who was sentenced to death for the alleged murder of Morteza Abdolali Sarbandi, a former employee of the Iranian Intelligence Ministry. The execution of Ms Jabbari was carried out on Saturday despite repeated calls on the authorities by various United Nations human rights mechanisms not to execute her.
Serious concerns were raised about due process in connection with Ms. Jabbari’s case -- in particular the allegation that her conviction was based on confessions made under duress. The court also apparently failed to take all relevant circumstantial evidence into account.
On 7 July 2007, Ms. Jabbari reportedly stabbed Mr. Sarbandi in the shoulder after he offered to hire her to redesign his office and then took her to a residence, where, according to her, he attempted to sexually assault her. Ms. Jabbari maintained that her actions were taken in self-defence, in order to prevent a serious assault on her person.
The Iranian authorities apparently did make attempts to prevent the execution, which was stayed at least twice, in April and September, in order to enable the two families to reach a settlement. However, it is the Government’s responsibility to prevent execution, especially when there is so much uncertainty about the events surrounding the killing, and concerns over due process.
We are very concerned about the increased use of the death penalty in Iran, as highlighted in the report of the Special Rapporteur on Iran which is being presented to the General Assembly later today. Iran is scheduled to appear before the Human Rights Council under the Universal Periodic Review this Friday (31 October), and we call on the Iranian authorities to make an explicit commitment to immediately institute a moratorium on the death penalty, particularly in light of the high number of executions and the continuing serious concerns about fair trial and due process.
