Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran A/67/369 para 81 Full recommendation: He continues to emphasize the need to establish an effective national human rights mechanism that is compliant with the Paris Principles, in order to ensure that violations of human rights are investigated and sufficient remedies are provided. Assessment As of February 2021, 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
