The Iran Tribunal

How victims of crimes committed by the regime of the Ayatollahs in the 1980’s have gone outside of international legal institutions in order to attain justice.


Many innocent Iranians suffered terrible atrocities and death in the regime of the Ayatollahs in the 1980’s. The UN failed to record the crimes in a formal way at any court or tribunal. Groups from around the world established an informal tribunal that prepared a report in 2013, publicly condemning the Iranian regime of grave crimes. Work of this tribunal provides a further example of how citizens dissatisfied with the performance of international institutions can deal with difficult problems in faraway places. It is hoped that victim(s) of Iranian torture may attend in person to explain how the human spirit can survive the most appalling depravities of their fellow men.
