Geneva, Dhu-AlQa'dah 02, 1437, August 05, 2016, SPA -- The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Zeid Al-Hussein deplored today the execution of 20 people in Iran this week for purported terrorism-related offences.
“The application of overly broad and vague criminal charges, coupled with a disdain for the rights of the accused to due process and a fair trial have in these cases led to a grave injustice,” UN's High Commissiner said in a statment.
