In a special session held in Geneva, the UN Human Rights Council adopted a resolution providing for the creation of an international mission to investigate human rights violations during protests in Iran.
Axar.az informs that this document proposed by the USA and other Western countries was approved by 25 of the 47 delegations, six countries voted against the resolution, and 16 countries abstained.
The resolution states that the Council decided to establish an independent fact-finding mission. His task will be to comprehensively and independently investigate human rights violations in Iran related to the protests that began on September 16, 2022. The mission must determine the facts and circumstances related to possible violations, as well as collect and analyze evidence.
A report on this will be presented at the 53rd session of the Council, which will take place in the summer of 2023.
