Vice President of the European Parliament
A lot has been said about the nuclear agreement signed between EU3+3 and Iran in summer. But problems with Iran are far from being over. One area that should be of major concern is Iran's conduct in the area of human rights.
Iran under President Rouhani has carried out some 2,000 executions over the past two years, according to opposition figures.Some victims who were lucky enough not to be hung on giant cranes (incidentally manufactured by European countries which trade with Iran) whose purpose is not to build, but to destroy lives, have suffered forced amputations and blinding.

The back-and-forth between supporters and opponents of the Iranian nuclear agreement has yielded at least one positive outcome: It has put a spotlight on the human rights situation in Iran.
What is happening there — the executions, imprisonments, intimidation and repression — is nothing less than a war by the regime against its own people.
A group of residents of the Jask port, in south-eastern Iran, on September 30 demonstrated outside the Mayor’s Office.
Mullah Hassan Rouhani, the President of Iran, hideously supported the atrocities of Syrian dictator Bashar Assad at the General Assembly and during his other remarks in New York. He portrayed the regime’s lethal meddling in the region as combating terrorism. This brazen defense of the greatest crime of the century, especially in a place where diplomatic rhetoric is prevalent, again drives home this reality that Rouhani is no different from Khamenei or other factions of this dictatorship when it comes to the fundamental policies of this regime such as export of terrorism and fundamentalism; a point that the Iranian Resistance has been making from the first day.
