„Stop the repression against Baha’is“

Menschen demonstrieren am 19. Juni 2011 in Rio de Janeiro am Strand von Copacabana und fordern von den iranischen Behörden, sieben Bahá'í-Häftlinge freizulassen, die der Spionage für Israel beschuldigt und zu 20 Jahren Gefängnis verurteilt wurden. © 2011 Ana Carolina Fernandes / AFP / Getty Images

Die International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) und die Iranian League for the Defence of Human Rights (LDDHI) geben gemeinsam eine Erklärung zur Verfolgung der Bahá’í im Iran heraus:

FIDH and LDDHI call upon the Iranian authorities to immediately cease all kinds of intimidation and harassment against the Baha’i community and release all persons arbitrarily detained. Iran should, under all circumstances, respect the international standards related to the right to a fair trial. In addition, FIDH and LDDHI urge the Islamic Republic of Iran, as a member State to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), to respect the right to freedom of religion and belief protected by international human rights law.
