Iran Human Rights: Oct. 13, 2022


According to Iran Human Rights, at least 201 people including 23 children, have been killed since the nationwide protests began a month ago. Additionally, many school children have been arrested with the Education Minister stating that the detainees were sent to “psychiatric centres” to be “corrected” and will be returned to school once they have been “corrected.” Recalling the inherent human right to protest, especially children and adolescents, Iran Human Rights calls on UN mechanisms for the right of children and all Member States to pressure the Islamic Republic to immediately release all the detained children and start international proceedings against the perpetrators of their murder.
