Javaid Rehman told journalists in Geneva that it is “unfortunate and disturbing” to have political prisoners detained amid the coronavirus outbreak.
#Coronavirus #COVID19 #CoronaOutbreak @WHO #pandemia @ForeignOffice @usadarfarsi @StateDept @SecPompeo @realDonaldTrump @USUN
This is also my worrying concern and therefore I have recommended to #Iran to release all prisoners on temporary release…,” he said.
A spokesman later clarified that Rehman was referring only to political prisoners and prisoners of conscience.

Iran is suffering from a drastic shortage of medical supplies, like masks and disinfectants, because the regime’s Revolutionary Guards Corps (#IRGC) is stockpiling them and selling them to the public at a major mark up.

State-run media reports that health masks priced at 2,000 rials are being sold for thirty times more in many places across #Iran. In some places, they now cost 150,000 rials. Yet still, people wait in long lines to pay big money for these essentials that are in short supply.
