  1. It is high time for Iran to be the subject of strong condemnation and liability by the international community, and for the regime to understand that it must comply with international standards in relation to voices of dissent. Otherwise, Iran will consider the international community’s silence and inaction a green light to continue pressuring political prisoners and increase its already horrific execution spree.
