The Abdorrahman Boroumand Center for Human Rights in Iran (ABC) and Harm Reduction International (HRI) welcome the opportunity of reporting to the Working Group for the Universal Periodic Review on the implementation of some key recommendations accepted by Iran in 2014, during its second Cycle of Universal Periodic Review (UPR). This submission will focus specifically on the use of the death penalty for drug-related offences, respect for fair trial guarantees in this context, and the country’s drug policy and its impact on the enjoyment of the human rights of people who use drugs.
