January 2020
Human Rights Council
The present report, submitted pursuant to General Assembly resolution 74/167, provides an overview of human rights concerns in the Islamic Republic of Iran, including the use of the death penalty, the execution of child offenders, the rights to freedom of opinion, expression, association and assembly, the human rights situation of women and girls, the human rights situation of minorities and the impact of sanctions.

July 2019
UN General Assembly
The Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran, Javaid Rehman, submits his second report to the General Assembly pursuant to Human Rights Council resolution 40/18. The present report is based on a range of consultations held with interlocutors and missions undertaken by the Special Rapporteur over the past year to Frankfurt (4–6 November 2018), Brussels (26 February–1 March 2019), Geneva (8–12 March 2019) and The Hague and Vienna (2–8 June 2019).
January 2019
Human Rights Council
The present report, submitted pursuant to Human Rights Council resolution 37/30, comprises two parts. In the first part, the Special Rapporteur describes how the protests in the Islamic Republic of Iran reflect long-standing grievances related to human rights. An amendment to the drug trafficking law has led to a decline in executions. Nevertheless, increasing economic challenges have intensified grievances, which may be exacerbated following the reimposition of unilateral sanctions. Discontent has been expressed through disparate protests by different groups across the country. The Government has introduced some measures aimed at addressing economic challenges, but the arrests of lawyers, human rights defenders and labour activists signal an increasingly severe State response. In the second part, the Special Rapporteur describes how the execution of child offenders in the Islamic Republic of Iran has continued over decades in violation of the country’s international human rights obligations. Girls can be sentenced to death as young as 9 and boys as young as 15. Despite amendments to the Penal Code and practical efforts aimed at reducing the executions, at least 33 child offenders have been executed since 2013. The Special Rapporteur makes a number of targeted recommendations to the Parliament and the judiciary with a view to ending such executions.
