UNHRC appoints rapporteur on Iran affairs

IRNA – The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) on Friday appointed Mr. Javaid Rehman as rapporteur for Iran affairs.

Rehman, a Pakistani by nationality, is a professor of Islamic law and Muslim constitutionalism at Brunel Law School.

He is replacing Ms. Asma Jilani Jahangir who was a Pakistani human rights lawyer and social activist.

Jahangir suffered from a stroke leading to brain hemorrhage in Lahore on 11 February 2018 and later died in hospital.

Due to using invalid sources especially anti-Iran terrorist Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO), Tehran has not so far recognized many reports as regard human rights conditions in Iran.
