Amnesty International Condemns Use of Force in Iran

Amnesty International condemns “excessive use of force”

“Once again today, the authorities have demonstrated their intolerance of dissent in a manner all too reminiscent of the ruthless methods they used in 1999,” said Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui, Amnesty International Deputy Program Director for Middle East and North Africa. “It is high time that they stop using strong arm tactics to crush protest and abide by their obligations under human rights law.”

The National Iranian American Council has also repeatedly condemned the violence and called for an end to both the violence and a release of all political prisoners.
