U.S. Statement of Concern for the Denial of Human Rights in Iran

Washington, D.C.–(ENEWSPF)–February 1, 2011. The following statement was issued by Philip J. Crowley Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Public Affairs, Department of State: 

The United States is deeply concerned that Iran continues to deny its citizens their human rights. Judicial cases, trials, and sentences continue to proceed without transparency and the due process rights enshrined in Iran’s own constitution.

We are particularly troubled by the recent execution of Dutch-Iranian national Zahra Bahrami, who was denied access to Dutch consular officials. Her execution is one of dozens carried out in recent weeks amid serious questions about the motives of the Iranian government and whether these prisoners were granted their rights under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. The United States urges the Iranian government to halt these executions and to guarantee the rights of its citizens in accordance with its international obligations.
