Crown Prince Reza Submits Report to the United Nations Security Council / Reza Pahlavi Crown Prince of Iran
20-Jan-2012 (8 comments)

Today I am submitting the following report to the United Nations Security Council on crimes against humanity, ordered by Mr Ali Khamenei, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic, and carried out on the people of Iran. The focus of the attached “Report on Crimes Against Humanity Committed in Iran on the Orders of Mr. Ali Khamenei – Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran” are the crimes against humanity committed to suppress popular dissent after Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s fraudulent re-election in June 2009. The evidence in this report provides sufficient cause for the United Nations Security Council to take up this matter and refer it quickly to the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court in The Hague.  However, for the past thirty-three years, the Supreme Leaders of the Islamic Republic have had in place a policy and record of oppression against ethnic communities and religious minorities. I intend to file further supporting reports documenting the abuses of these Iranian citizens and will summarize these crimes in another report.

Bosnian Serb war criminal recaptured after years on the run

Bosnian Serb war criminal recaptured (cnn)



CNN) -- Bosnian police have recaptured a former member of Serb paramilitary forces who escaped from prison nearly five years ago, authorities said.

Radovan Stankovic was convicted in Bosnia in November 2006 for crimes against humanity, including rape, sexual assault and enslavement of women and young girls during Bosnia's 1992-1995 war.

He escaped from a Bosnian prison in May 2007.

"Today's apprehension of Stankovic significant for the victims of the grave crimes he has been convicted for," the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia said in a statement Saturday.

"I hope that this arrest reflects an increased commitment of the authorities of Bosnia and Herzegovina to support the process of bringing to justice those responsible for the grave crimes committed on their territory in the early 1990s."

Stankovic was captured in Foca, the same town he escaped from jail.



Thank you Mr. Darius

MM Jan Iran is not signatory of the Rome Treaty

by Darius Kadivar on

Hence why RP 2 is taking this to the UN security council as a first step. 

Even If the UN doesn't respond positively (which is quite likely given that they are hardly reacting to similar calls on Syria) RP has said he will continue through other means.

From what I understand The key to this initiative is first and foremost to draw international awareness on this situation but also as a reminder for future UN Sessions.

By officially submitting this report today then if tomorrow let's say Iran decides to hang or stone people for adultry, homosexuality or even espionage, Human Rights Activists will have the legal arguments to condone or sanction future UN deliberations on Iran's Human Rights Record. 

The seriousness with which this is being submitted will allow to convince different diplomatic corps or MP's notably within the European Community to Lobby the cause of Human Rights beyond vague promises and commit them to taking this report seriously.

This can be a very useful tool of at least moral pressure which cannot be overlooked nor dismissed so easily regardless of what the UN security council's response will be.

The European Parliament is not a homogenous entity. Thanks to this report deputies or MP's belonging to different political parties as well as Human Rights lobbies can use it to pressure their respective governments in complying with the Moral and legal demand for Human Rights to be respected in Iran.  

The La Hague Court of Justice is the Only Court since Nuremburg which has seeked to pursue such crimes since the end of WWII. 

It has remarkably been successful in the case of all crimes committed during the Conflict in former Yougoslavia for which ALL those accused of such crimes were arrested and convicted. More recently this was also the case in Ivory Coast with Mambo Ghabo ( not sure of the spelling).

The main argument and justification behind this initiative is that it will give us Iranians some leverage in regard to the West or other nations who wish to cut deals with Iran while overlooking the Human Rights issue.

On the other hand it also gives Iranians at large a moral legitimacy and high ground over the IRI if ever god forbid a similar situation like in Syria were to occur in Iran.

Will this be enough ? Definitively Not but it is at least a first step and one which follows a legal procedure with sufficient evidence ( notably thanks to the Boroumand Foundation for Human Rights and other research centers) to seize the different Juridictions.

In addition if other cases of abuse and systematic use of torture and executions are to appear given the rogue nature of this regime. These new evidences will be added to the Report officially and not merely for the Press. This will build up the ever stronger arguments of taking these reports seriously a little like when the Shah's regime was put under similar pressures due to reports by Amnesty International back in the 1970's. 


My Humble Opinion,





by MM on

A couple of questions:

Back in 2009, when i suggested prosecution by the Hague court, a few "lawyers" here told me that since IRI is officially in charge of Iran, the court did not have jurisdiction. Have things  changed?

I am hoping that RP has an electronic mail for us to sign and send to all the recipients in your report??

Thanks.  I am glad he is tackling this issue. 


I hope he sees this through

If he does, he would achieve an amazingly concrete and meaningful action.
