      Description

      Ahmed Naderi, a member of the board of directors of the Iranian Parliament, supported the killing, detention and torture of people during the 2022 nationwide protests in Iran.

       

      Reading out the statement of 233 MPs in the public session of the parliament on 2 October 2022, he praised and supported the performance of the security and law enforcement forces in suppressing the protesters.

       

      In part, the statement stresses the important role of the police in quelling the people and reads: “We give our full support to the personnel serving in the Law Enforcement Command of the Islamic Republic of Iran, who are the protectors of our people’s lives, property and honor and the main providers of order, security and peace in the country. We appreciate the dedicated and compassionate efforts of the Iranian Police Special Units Command and the security forces in dealing with riots and gatherings throughout the country and bringing peace and security back to society with their sacrifices which unfortunately led to the injury and martyrdom of a number of hardworking officers.”

       

      The 2022-23 protests began following the death of Mahsa (Gina) Amini on September 13, 2022, in the detention of the morality police of the Islamic Republic. These protests quickly spread across the country and are remembered as the largest revolutionary uprising against the government since the

      establishment of the Islamic Republic.

      The Iranian government responded to these protests with deadly violence. According to human rights organizations, the security forces of the Islamic Republic have killed at least 551 people, with a minimum of 68 of them being children.
