Human Rights Council Special Session on the deterioration of human rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran
Following Iran’s deadly crackdown against peaceful protestors and the ensuing humanitarian crisis, Germany and Iceland led a coalition of 44 UN member states calling for an emergency session on the deteriorating situation of human rights in Iran, especially with respect to women and children.
The United Nations Human Rights Council, which is based in Geneva, held an urgent session on Thursday, November 24, 2022. A strong resolution condemning the Islamic Republic was adopted by an overwhelming majority of the 47-member-state body.
During the urgent session, UN Watch Executive Director Hillel Neuer took the floor to refute the lies and misinformation of the Tehran regime’s delegate.
