Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran A/HRC/22/56 para 78(e) Full recommendation: Expedite its voluntary commitment to establish a National Human Rights Commission, in accordance with Paris Principles. Assessment As of February 2020, Iran has not established an independent and impartial National Human Rights Institution. The High Council of Human rights is often mentioned by Iran as being the country’s NHRI, yet the fact that this body is a part of the Judiciary of Iran strips it of any claims of independence and impartiality. Recommendation Status: This recommendation has NOT been implemented. 1
