In an interview with Sky News, Alireza Jafarzadeh emphasized on the importance of the international community's support for the uprising of the Iranian people and said that it was a source of inspiration for the insurgents because they find that their voices were heard, and the regime could not suppress the people silently. Sky News:A new report by Ms. Asma Jahangir, the Special Rapporteur on Human Rights on repression and torture in Iran,

will be discussed at the Human Rights Council. The report shows how systematically the Iranian regime's security bodies targeting prisoners, torture them and use inhuman methods. The report expresses concerns over what might be happening for the arrested demonstrators. Those who were arrested at the recent demonstrations called for the overthrow of the clerical regime.

The new UN report highlights the widespread human rights violations in Iran's prisons, torture and arbitrary arrests, and the use of electric shocks to obtain confessions and other methods. What is the significance of such a report, especially for Iran?

Alireza Jafarzadeh, the representative of the National Council of Resistance of Iran in Washington, “This report is important because endorses what others have said, particularly the activists, including the organized opposition forces. We were publishing the reports as the resistance movement and the PMOI, and this report is now emphasized by an independent international delegation, so it is a very important report, despite the Tehran regime's attempts to block the publication of this report, it was released. The report will also have a domestic impact, those who are subject to these abuses and the victims and their families, and those who rise will be more active to demand freedom for Iran when they realize that the international community is aware of what is going on in Iran. This report is a strong message from outside. The report is also a strong message to the Mullahs, telling them that you will not stay in power for a long time because the world is watching you closely.


Iran's regime may not change its behavior, but they will realize that the time has changed, and that murder, torture, and violations of citizens' rights will not remain with impunity like it has been until now. But now there is the pressure of the international community and the Arab and Islamic countries, and everyone watches them and takes positions against these abuses, and this is part of the efforts of the international community. The Iranian regime must know that it has a limited number of days, particularly given the spread of the uprising in Iran because of the protests in 142 cities. The demonstrations continue in different parts of the country on a daily basis and people are demanding freedom and overthrow of the clerical regime. They want Iran to be free, democratic, and secular.
