UN Menschenrechtsrat untersucht Proteste im Iran

By Duncan Mil

October 26, 2022 - Der UN Menschenrechtsrat fordert den Iran auf, seinen "unverhältnismäßigen" Einsatz gegen die Proteste für mehr und bessere Frauenrechte zu beenden. Bisher gibt es 465 Tote, davon sind 58 Kinder, 27 Frauen und 50 Polizisten.

Die 22-jährige Mahsa Aminis Tod wurde am 16. Sep im Teheraner Kasra Spital festgestellt - die junge Frau ist durch viele und brutale Schläge auf den Kopf gestorben.

The 22-year-old died last month in the custody of the Gasht-e Ershad -- the so-called morality police -- after they arrested her for allegedly wearing the hijab incorrectly. Her death sparked mass anti-government protests, which have continued for more than five weeks across Iran.

“Mahsa Amini’s family is under a lot of pressure from the Iranian security agencies to issue a statement regarding the ceremony marking 40 days since Mahsa’s death. Her brother and other relatives have been threatened with arrest,” Hengaw reported.

There have been numerous calls for nationwide protests to mark the 40th day since Amini’s death.

Mahsa Amini is not the only young female protester to be killed.

On September 20, 16-year-old Nika Shakarami died after she messaged a friend to say security forces were chasing her during a protest in Tehran. Her body showed multiple fractures to her head, pelvis, arms and legs.

The family of Hadis Najafi, 22, have said that she was shot dead by security forces while protesting in the city of Karaj, west of Tehran, on September 21. Officials allegedly asked her father to say she died of a heart attack.

Another 16-year-old girl, Sarina Esmailzadeh, died after being severely beaten on the head by security forces during protests in Karaj on September 23, according to Amnesty International.
