Iran Proposes Bill that Limits NGO Activity

The Iranian parliament has been urged to scrap draft legislation that would place restrictions on the independence of NGOs

The Iranian parliament has been urged to scrap draft legislation that would place restrictions on the independence of NGOs.
 
According to Amnesty International, the law would require that all NGOs operating in the country register with ‘a new and unaccountable body’ that has links with the Intelligence Ministry and the Basij volunteer paramilitary force.
 
Amnesty International’s Middle East and North Africa Programme deputy director, Hadj Sahraoui, says the bill could herald ‘the death knell for civil society’ in that country. Sahraoui further states that, "This bill will set back civil society in Iran and represents yet another nail in the coffin of the right to freedom of association in the country."
