Human rights in Iran are going from bad to worst under “moderate” president Rouhani.
The rate of executions reached an all time high last week with 65 reported executions in one week. 45 of these executions took place in Karaj city prisons less than a week after prisoners there staged protests.
But Tehran is not only consistently abusing human rights it is also mocking the West by repeated denials of doing so and accusing the West of double standards.
While the West is shocked by these abuses, the Iranian parliament is issuing more laws which promote and entrench these abuses.
The world must wake up to the fact that Iran is a serial abuser of human rights and that denials and accusations by Tehran are only meant to allow these abuses to continue.
