      Description
      As the Public and Revolutionary Prosecutor of Qom, Hassan Gharib, refused to fulfil his duty to identify those responsible for the poisoning of schoolgirls and filing a criminal case against them. Through this, he allowed   the students’ right to life and right to be free from torture to be violated. On 30 November 2022, the news of a poison attack at a girls’ school in Qom was published. Several videos and reports were published afterwards suggesting that the poisoning of students was spreading to schools in other cities of Iran. Hassan Gharib and other Iranian authorities have failed to identify and hold accountable the perpetrators of the chemical attacks on schools in Urmia and other cities. They continue to make contradictory statements and have blamed the enemies of the Islamic Republic for these incidents. In fact, many believe that these poisonings were a form of vengeance against the school girls who took part in the protests after the death of Jina Mahsa Amini in September 2022. Mahsa (Jina) Amini was killed on 16 September 2022 while being in custody of the Morality Police of the Islamic Republic. In protest of her death, a nationwide uprising broke out in Iran which is still ongoing in various forms in different cities. According to the reports of human rights organizations, the police and security forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran have killed at least 537 citizens, including 68  children, during the revolutionary uprising of the Iranian people.
