The mission of the Truth-finding Committee and Special Rapporteur for Iran has been extended

The mandate of the Truth-Finding Committee and the Special Rapporteur on Iran has been extended.

The highest human rights body of the United Nations held a session on Friday, April 16, in Geneva. In this session, the members of this body voted with a majority to extend the mandate of the Truth-Finding Committee to investigate the suppression of the women’s rights movement and also the mandate of Javid Rahman, the Special Rapporteur of the United Nations for Iran.

Out of the 47 members of this council, 24 countries voted in favor of extending these two mandates, while only 8 countries opposed. 15 countries abstained from voting.

China, Cuba, Sudan, Vietnam, Indonesia, Algeria, Burundi, and Eritrea voted against this resolution. Bangladesh, Brazil, India, Malaysia, Qatar, South Africa, and the United Arab Emirates were among the countries that abstained from voting.

The resolution of this council states that extending Javid Rahman’s mandate is essential for continued monitoring of the current human rights situation, including civil, political, economic, social, and cultural rights.
