Iran: rights

Iran has withdrawn its bid for a seat on the U.N. Human Rights Council.
The director of Human Rights Watch said that mounting global opposition has forced them out of the race and welcomed what she described as a clear condemnation of Iran's "appalling human rights record."
The elections will take place during a meeting of the General Assembly on May 13.

Ali-Mohammad Azad, the governor of Sistan-Baluchestan province said that security and economic activity in this province has increased since the arrest of the leader of Jondollah, Abdelmalek Rigi in February.
He also said that 300 criminals and militants, some of whom belonged to Rigi's Jundollah (God's Soldiers) group, had sought amnesty "to return to the nation's embrace."
According to PressTV Azad said that the immunity has been granted to 110 of those who lodged an appeal.
However, he also said that immunity was only given to those defectors who did not have a private plaintif. The others have to stand trial in a court of law.

He is already 5 months detained in isolation.
