Nieuwe MO*paper: What is the status of human rights in Iran?

Engelstalige MO*paper naar aanleiding van de MO*lezing met Shirin Ebadi van maandag 2 maart in Brussel.

Therefore, the Islamic Republic does have legitimacy for the votes of the people, which happened in 1979. But whether it has legitimacy, its legitimacy can only be proved if it observes human rights. And what is the story of human rights in Iran? What is the status of human rights?’
