Washington, DC – The Public Affairs Alliance of Iranian Americans (PAAIA) and PARS Equality Center echo a call by 43 rights organizations for the United Nations Human Rights Council to hold an emergency session to investigate the rampant human rights violations in Iran. The call by rights organizations includes groups such as the Center for Human Rights in Iran as well as Amnesty International, who started a petition in support of a UN Human Rights Council investigation.

On October 15th, 2022, dozens were injured, and an unknown number died after a fire started at Tehran’s Evin Prison, infamously known as where political prisoners Siamak Namazi, Emad Shargi, and others are being unjustly held. PAAIA and PARS are actively monitoring developments around this incident as international groups work to uncover what happened. 

The families of those imprisoned at Evin Prison as well as all the Iranian people deserve accountability and justice for the untold numbers of deaths, injuries, and human rights abuses across Iran in recent weeks. PAAIA and PARS urge the United Nations Human Rights Council to take action and stand with the people of Iran.
