On the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, ICHR Stands in solidarity with the victims of torture and strongly condemns torture from the outset as one of the highest violence acts perpetrated by human beings (dictatorship governments) on their fellow human beings.
ICHR also Strongly Condemns the government of Iran for committing torture, for forced confessions, defamations, and executions of citizens.
Torturers must never be allowed to get away with their crimes, and systems that enable torture should be dismantled or transformed.
Torture seeks to annihilate the victim’s personality and denies the inherent dignity of the human being. Despite the absolute prohibition of torture under international law, torture persist in all regions of the world.
Dictator governments allow torture and other forms of cruel, degrading and inhuman treatment.
Torture is a crime under international law. According to all relevant instruments, it is absolutely prohibited and cannot be justified under any circumstances. This prohibition forms part of customary international law, which means that it is binding on every member of the international community, regardless of whether a State has ratified international treaties in which torture is expressly prohibited. The systematic or widespread practice of torture constitutes a crime against humanity.
It is important to note that the Iranian government has committed more than a thousands forced confessions and defamation of citizens in the past 10 years by using torture.
Human rights violations, use of torture and forced confessions are systematic strategy for the government of Iran to keep it’s dictatorship power and loot the country’s richness.
Just recently the High Court of Iranian regime has upheld the death sentences of AmirHossein Moradi Said Tamjidi & Muhammad Rajabi to death, the are three jailed young activists whom were in the protests of Nov-2019 that left more than 1500 Peaceful protesters killed & more than 12000 arrested by the government.
Every case they have against political prisoners are conducted unlawfully and through torture, to get forced confessions.
