European parliament condemns
human rights abuses in Iran

Agence France Presse,
Oct. 28, Strasbourg

The European Parliament expressed alarm Thursday at the deterioration in the area of human rights in Iran, in particular those relating to press freedom and the death penalty.

"The situation in Iran with regard to the exercise of key civil rights and political freedom has deteriorated since the parliamentary elections of February this year despite commitments on the part of the government of Iran to promoting these universal values," according to a motion passed by the parliament.

"The National Security Council and the office of the public prosecutor are increasingly intervening directly with the press to influence the content of the reported news," it said.

The parliamentarians drew attention to the cases of eight journalists working for the electronic media, imprisoned for unknown reasons at an undisclosed location.

Websites -- "the Iranian public's only remaining means of access to uncensored information"-- were increasingly censored by the religious authorities, they said.

The parliamentarians said they were "appalled at the public hanging" two months ago of a 16-year-old girl. They noted that 25 minors had been sentenced to death in the past year.

They said they were deeply worried by the sentence of death by stoning passed on a 13-year old girl, Zhila Izadi, pregnant by her 15-year-old brother, himself sentenced to 150 lashes.

Crackdown on Internet journalists in Iran

Reuters, Oct. 13, Tehran -- Iranian authorities have arrested at least six Internet journalists and webloggers in recent days, colleagues and relatives say, in a further blow to limited press freedoms in the Islamic state.

News-based Internet sites and online journals known as Weblogs have flourished in Iran where the disproportionately youthful population often turns to the Internet for information and entertainment. The hardline judiciary's muzzling of print media through the closure of some 100 publications in the last four years also meant the Internet became a haven for liberal journalists seeking a place to write.

Journalists and relatives named the six arrested journalists and Webloggers as Shahram Rafizadeh, Babak Ghafouri-Azar, Rouzbeh Amir-Ebrahimi, Hanif Mazroui, Omid Memarian and Mostafa Derayati.

"We do not know where they are being held. We heard they have been kept in solitary confinement," said a relative of one of the detainees, who asked not to be named.
