Suicide of a 13year old child in Sanandaj city
Human Rights in Iran – Saturday, September 3, 2022 – A young child living in Sanandaj, the capital of Kurdistan Province, died following a suicide attempt.
According to Human Rights in Iran, on Tuesday, August 30, 2022, Shahdad Nemati, born in 2009, son of Mohammad Najib, from the village of Takhte in the Central District of Sanandaj County, the capital of Kurdistan Province, died after being frustrated with life and attempted suicide.
Shahdad Nemati suffered from depression, and had hanged himself at the time of his suicide, according to the report.
The increase in poverty, lack of life expectancy, lack of employment market and social constructive activities for citizens, security and social repressions, extensive deprivations due to mismanagement in the country are among the reasons for the increase in suicide in Iran.
Deprivation of the right to life expectancy and the lack of social security of citizens is expanding while Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights emphasizes the right of individuals to enjoy adequate social security.
Also, in the proposed goals of the UNESCO 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (SDGs : Sustainable Development Goals), the right of all human beings to enjoy a healthy and standard living environment, appropriate to their dignity and human position, has been explicitly highlighted. But in Iran, after the approval of this document, due to the opposition of Ali Khamenei and his announcement with the sentence that “gentlemen signed a document without our permission”, he removed its implementation from the agenda for the development of the country and strongly opposed it.c
