UN Special Session on Drug Policy Must Call on Iran to Ban Narcotic-Related Executions
In a new video published today, the Abdorrahman Boroumand Foundation and Impact Iran say Iran must end its use of the death penalty for drug-related crimes. The video’s release coincides with the start of the United Nations General Assembly Special Session (UNGASS) tasked with reviewing international drug control systems and assessing priorities. The UNGASS is an important opportunity to examine human rights failings and change priorities in drug policy in Iran and globally.
