Iran: Victims of human rights violations

, Index number: MDE 13/010/1993

Serious human rights violations continue in Iran with long-term political imprisonment after unfair trials, the widespread use of torture and the death penalty, and possible extrajudicial executions of opposition activists outside Iran. Those targeted include real or suspected members of opposition groups, including the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI), followers of Dr Shariati, the Tudeh Party, Peykar and Razmandegan; Kurdish organizations such as the Kurdistan Democratic Party of Iran (KDPI) and Komala, and groups representing ethnic minorities such as the Baluchis and Arabs. Abuses against women and members of religious minorities such as Christians and Bahai'is have also continued.
