Violent Aftermath: The 2009 Election and Suppression of Dissent in Iran

Violent Aftermath: The 2009 Election and Suppression of Dissent in Iran

Ratings: (0)|Views: 406|Likes:
Published by IHRDC
This preliminary report documents and analyzes the regime’s brutal suppression of dissent after the June 12, 2009 presidential elections. Hours before the incumbent, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, was declared the victor on election day, the regime began arresting opposition politicians, journalists and other activists. The arrests continued through the end of the year as did demonstrations that were met with violence by the regime’s security apparatus. This report documents in detail dozens of human rights abuses of Iranians and foreigners—including beatings, kidnappings, rapes and murders—and analyzes the perpetrators’ liability under Iranian and international law.

 Iran Human Rights Documentation Center
The Iran Human Rights Documentation Center (IHRDC) believes that the development of anaccountability movement and a culture of human rights in Iran are crucial to the long-term peace andsecurity of the country and the Middle East region. As numerous examples have illustrated, the removalof an authoritarian regime does not necessarily lead to an improved human rights situation if institutionsand civil society are weak, or if a culture of human rights and democratic governance has not beencultivated. By providing Iranians with comprehensive human rights reports, data about past and presenthuman rights violations and information about international human rights standards, particularly theInternational Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, the IHRDC programs will strengthen Iranians’ability to demand accountability, reform public institutions, and promote transparency and respect forhuman rights. Encouraging a culture of human rights within Iranian society as a whole will allow politicaland legal reforms to have real and lasting weight.The
IHRDC
seeks to:
 
Establish a comprehensive and objective historical record of the human rights situation in Iransince the 1979 revolution, and on the basis of this record, establish responsibility for patterns of human rights abuses;
 
Make such record available in an archive that is accessible to the public for research andeducational purposes;
 
Promote accountability, respect for human rights and the rule of law in Iran; and
 
Encourage an informed dialogue on the human rights situation in Iran among scholars and thegeneral public in Iran and abroad.
