The ECAJ has lodged a submission with the Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade References Committee in response to its Inquiry into Human rights implications of recent violence in Iran. The submission calls for: Australia to impose further sanctions on Iranian officials and government agencies; the IRGC and Basij to be listed as terrorist organisations; the expulsion of Iran from the UN Commission on the Status of Women; Australia’s Smartraveller advisory webpage with regard to Iran to provide more detailed and explicit warnings about the cruel methods of execution, torture and other forms of mistreatment, including beatings and sexual assault, which travellers risk if they are detained; and tracking of Iranian funds to Australian charities and not-for-profits.
