Iran: further

Till now no news is published about the fate of Dutch-Iranian Zahra Bahrami.

Gozaar published a humanrightsreport about human rights abuse in August 2010. This shows among other things that the regime has made considerable use of ta’ziri punishments.
These allow a judge to impose a sentence according to his discretion because no prescribed punishment exists in Islamic law. Such an approach means that defendants have no idea as to the extent of the legal jeopardy that they face, yet another example of the unfairness of the Iranian legal system.
The crackdown on universities has intensified by summoning of students for questioning, student suspensions and arrest of students as well as dismissal of professors.
Many protestors after the elections, who were arrested are accused of moharebeh or for “acting against national security” and similar crimes.
Unionmembers have been harrassed and arrested.
Recent figures from Mehrafarin Institute show there are five million children in Iran who have not received any schooling.
Women are sentenced to death by stoning.
Members of religious minorities like Bahai are strongly persecuted and excluded from universities.
Following a crackdown on derwishes they are also threathened.
Statistics for executions are rising and brings back memory of the mass executions of the 1980s in the minds of the public.
