That this House notes Iran's regime has so far executed over 120,000 political prisoners, the majority affiliated to the People's Mojahedin Organisation of Iran (PMOI) and tortured hundreds of thousands; is deeply shocked by the recent torture and murder of political opponent Sattar Beheshti;further notes that on 27 November 2012 the UN expressed deep concern at serious human rights violations in Iran relating to torture, the execution of minors, the imposition of the death penalty for moharebeh (enmity against God), rape of political prisoners, restrictions on the right to freedom of thought and worship, pervasive gender inequality and persecution of ethnic and religious minorities; further notes that Iran has ignored international calls to allow UN special rapporteurs to visit and that many political prisoners are incarcerated and executed simply for being related to PMOI members in camps Ashraf and Liberty or providing them with financial support; and urges the Government to condemn human rights abuse in Iran at the highest level, base any economic deals with Iran on improvements in the human rights situation, tighten sanctions against the regime in line with the UK's international partners, bring the regime's human rights dossier before the UN Security Council and call for prosecution of the regime's officials for crimes against humanity.
