This report covers the human rights developments since the commencement of the mandate of the Special Rapporteur on August 1, 2011. The present report outlines the Special Rapporteur's proposed methodology and highlights the recent trends in the human rights situation in Iran. While listing some of the most recent human rights concerns, the Special Rapporteur focuses on some of the cases that emerged during post-election unrest in 2009. Although the report does not cover all the violations of human rights in the country, it provides a picture of the prevailing situation in that regard. It is envisaged that a number of important issues not covered in the present report will be addressed in the Special Rapporteur's future reports.
