The head of the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) Navi Pilley has warned Iran of the brutal suppression of popular unrest.
Pilley said that the arrest of peaceful protesters in Iran caused problems, Associated Press reported.
UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pilley said that the Iranian authorities should ensure an adequate trial of detainees. She also added that failure to ensure appropriate standards of judicial proceedings may give rise to feelings of injustice.
Pilley said that the pro-governmental police's actions against supporters of the opposition can seriously worsen the situation in Iran.
In today's interview, she advised the Iranian authorities to guarantee and respect the right to freedom of speech and assembly.
Supporters of the opposition held a rally to protest against the results of presidential elections on June 12, where Mahmoud Ahmadinejad won by majority of votes.
