The UN recently adopted its 65th resolution expressing its severe disapproval of human rights conditions in Iran.

The resolution, co-sponsored by 30 other countries, singles out violations against religious minorities, including Christians, Gonabadi Dervishes, Jews, Sufi Muslims, Sunni Muslims, Yarsanis, Zoroastrians and members of the Baha’i faith, and urges that those imprisoned for their faith be released.

This UN resolution stresses the “alarmingly high frequency” of the use of the death penalty including against minors, “the widespread and systematic use of arbitrary detention,” poor prison conditions, “deliberately denying prisoners access to adequate medical treatment,” and “cases of suspicious deaths in custody." The General Assembly’s Human Rights Committee adopted the resolution by a vote of 85-30, with 68 abstentions. It is expected to be approved by the 193-member world body in December.

This would be the 65th UN resolution condemning human rights abuses in Iran.
