UNHRC stands for headquarters in Geneva United Nations Human Rights Council. A UNHCR spokesperson told Fox News Digital that Iran has been on the council’s agenda for more than a decade and that in 2011 it appointed a special rapporteur to look into the human rights situation there. “States and NGOs have also addressed the situation in Iran at the Human Rights Council, including at its last session in September/October, where a number of them condemned the crackdown on protesters and the tragic death of Mahsa Amini in September.”

The Iranian people are being blamed for 43 years of this persecution, which has reached some from its ugliest and most brutal and violent moments in the past seven weeks.”

She added: “It’s also important to remember that these are just some of the moments that are captured on camera phones and posted on social media or sent to journalists like me. Just think of all the crimes that happen where there are no cameras.”

Fox News Digital sent inquiries to reporters Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Iranian regime and its diplomatic mission to the UN. Tasnim news agency, a regime-controlled media outlet, said on Wednesday that an order had been issued to “investigate the exact time and place of the incident and identify the perpetrators.”
