Iran_1988_massacre_26092020

In the investigation of the 1988 massacre and the reports of prisoners being relocated with gross violations of human rights, such as “physical and psychological torture” using various inhumane methods, as well as “systematic execution and crimes” against prisoners, we encounter two characteristics of crimes against humanity. In the ethical teachings of Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, St. Augustine, and St. Thomas Aquinas, natural rights are synonymous with justice, and the violation of these rights is considered a crime. International law, which is derived from these teachings, asserts that in any crime, anywhere in the world, it is humanity that is harmed. In other words, crimes have global implications. Based on this understanding, international criminal courts were established in Nuremberg, Tokyo, Rwanda, and Yugoslavia to prosecute crimes against humanity.

Economic statistics in Iran are selectively published, only highlighting fake and baseless successes. Other statistics are kept hidden, leading to a lack of comprehensive data.

Fluctuations in oil prices directly impact the country’s economic indicators.
