The Credibility of the United Nations Under the Shadow of the Lies of Ahmad Shaheed

A review of Ahmad Shaheed’s reports on Iran clearly shows that he is biased and relies on unrealistic, vague and contradictory sources and documents against the Islamic Republic of Iran, and his recent report is no exception to this rule.

Earlier this week, Ahmad Shaheed, the UN special rapporteur on human rights in Iran, presented a new report to members of the UN General Assembly, claiming that the number of executions in Iran was high, calling the human rights situation in Iran inadequate.

Of course, this population, which even in its centre (Israel) is not allowed to gather more than 19 people, lives freely in Iran. Ahmad Shaheed goes on to say, “Baha’is are deprived of property, education and employment.” This claim also stems from the fact that he is not familiar with the realities of Iranian society. This is because the Baha’is, in spite of their declining economy by fleeing Iran after the Islamic Revolution, still have a monopoly on some affairs in many economic fields.”…
