Iran Unveils 2014 Report on US Human Rights Violations
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The 2014 edition of the report on human rights violations in the United States was released in a special ceremony held at Tehran University on Monday.
The 115 page document has been compiled by Iran's International Human Rights Center.
In the report, the Tehran-based rights group elaborates on different aspects of human rights violations across the United States in 2014.
Violation of prisoners’ rights, breach of privacy rights, violation of the rights of minorities, breaches of immigrants’ rights, racial discrimination, violation of children's rights, violation of freedom of speech, and sexual violence against women in the American society are among the issues raised in the report.
The document has been released in three languages.
The English version of the report is available at http://www.usviewer.com/uploads/pdf/hr/en.pdf.
The United States, which has already been criticized for politicizing the issue of human rights, is one of the major self-proclaimed defenders of human rights.
Excessive use of force by the US police against protesters, people of color in particular, are among the thorny issues staining the country's rights record.
