London, 3 Mar - Iranian film director Asghar Farhadi won an Oscar for his drama “The Salesman”. However, he did not attend the awards ceremony in the United States. Instead, Iranian-American astronaut Anoush Ansari read a statement on behalf of Farhadi. He said: “I’m sorry I’m not with you tonight. My absence is out of respect for the people of my country and those of other six nations who have been disrespected by the inhumane law that bans entry of immigrants to the U.S.” His award was accepted on his behalf by Dr. Firouz Naderi - a director of NASA’s Solar System Exploration program.

London, 23 Feb - Amnesty International has released its annual report entitled “The State of the World’s Human Rights” for 2016/2017. This report is the most detailed analysis of the international human rights situation.

Regarding the situation in the Islamic Republic of Iran, the report highlighted that the people of Iran are denied the freedom of expression and the right to peacefully protest and the right to religious freedom. Prisoners in Iran are also mistreated and are denied the right to fair trials. Cruel punishments such as flogging and amputation are frequent, and women and minors are discriminated against. Furthermore, executions are carried out on a regular basis, and some are carried out in public.
