“We will make you regret everything” - Torture in Iran since the 2009 elections

Iran report

'"We will make you regret everything" Torture in Iran since the 2009 elections' is a research report containing some of the most detailed forensic evidence of torture to have emerged from Iran's recent history.

The report, published on the same day (11 March 2013) that the UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran presented to the Human Rights Council in Geneva, is a systematic study of 50 Iranian torture cases, from 2009-2011, documented by clinicians from Freedom from Torture's Medico Legal Reports Service.

Keith Best, Freedom from Torture CEO, said:

"Freedom from Torture's purpose in publishing this clinical evidence is not only to expose the role of torture in the crackdown that marred Iran's 2009 elections, but also to warn the world that vigilance and pressure are necessary to prevent a repeat when Iranians return to the polls to elect a new president in June."
