Iran is putting political prisoners' lives at risk by denying them medical care
Iran’s authorities are callously toying with the lives of prisoners of conscience and other political prisoners by denying them adequate medical care, putting them at grave risk of death, permanent disability or other irreversible damage to their health, according to a new report by Amnesty International published today.

Press briefing notes on Flogging in Iran, unfair restrictions on NGO access to the UN and executions in Gaza
We condemn the outrageous flogging of up to 35 young men and women in Iran last week, after they were caught holding a graduation party together in Qazvin, north of Tehran. According to State media, the students were arrested on Thursday, interrogated and sentenced by the Prosecutor’s Office to 99 lashes each and then were flogged – all within the space of 24 hours. - See more at: http://www.ohchr.org/EN/NewsEvents/Pages/DisplayNews.aspx?NewsID=20037&LangID=E-#sthash.SYADHRqW.dpuf

Juvenile offender to be executed in a week gives harrowing torture account
“That the Iranian authorities are preparing to put to death a young man who’s been tortured for 97 days to ‘confess’ when he was 17 years old beggars belief. With less than a week left before he is due to be executed, there is no time to waste. Saman’s execution must be immediately stopped and his case thoroughly reviewed,” said Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui, Amnesty International’s Deputy Director for the Middle East and North Africa.

Charlie Hebdo: After the shock and mobilisation, comes time for action

Analysis of The FIDH Executive Bureau

FIDH commends the millions who took part in the 11 January 2015 Marches in France and other parts of the world, in reaction to the killings in Paris targetting Charlie Hebdo and a Kosher supermarket. Witnessing the reactionary demonstrations taking place in response to Charlie Hebdo’s most recent publication, FIDH feels especially compelled to analyse their significance and outcomes.

Iran: Dozens Unlawfully Held in City’s Prisons

Locked Up in Karaj
Spotlight on Political Prisoners in One Iranian City

The 59-page report is based on a review of 189 cases in three prisons in the city of Karaj, near the capital, Tehran, including the charges they faced, details of their trials before revolutionary courts, and information from lawyers, prisoners’ families, and others. Human Rights Watch concluded that in 63 of these cases, authorities had arrested the prisoners, and revolutionary courts had convicted and sentenced them, solely because they exercised fundamental rights such as free speech and rights to peaceful assembly or association. In dozens of other cases, including 35 prisoners sentenced to death on death row for terrorism-related offences, Human Rights Watch suspects egregious due process violations that may have tainted the judicial process.
