Iran Human Rights Documentation Center has just announced an upcoming panel at Leitner Center for International Law and Justice to discuss the situation of human and civil rights in Iran. This panel discussion will take place on September 29, 2009, in New York. In describing the work of this panel, the Center states:
The human rights situation in Iran is complex and disturbing. The crackdown following the disputed June 12 elections compels urgent attention to human rights abuses: repression of expression and assembly, arbitrary arrest and detention, torture, and execution. The panel seeks to present perspectives from victims, human rights lawyers, and scholars as well as from the government of Iran.
