On May 25th 2016 17 Gold Miners were flogged in Iran for protesting against the layoff of 350 of their co-workers. A week later the Islamic Regime was attending the 104th session of the International Labour Board Conference in Geneva. A dictatorship that persecutes workers by imprisoning or lashing them for asking for their legal rights should not be allowed to attend international conferences on labour law! This is complete hypocrisy. The International Labour Board must condemn Islamic Regime's treatment of it's workers rather than allowing the Regime to make a mockery of the international labour conference!

Seventeen miners in northwestern Iran have been lashed on orders of the Judiciary after their employer sued them for protesting the firing of hundreds of their colleagues, the semi-official Iranian Labor News Agency (ILNA) reported on May 25, 2016.
