Recently Amnesty International documented in this page the Iran last year babel. That report is obviously wrong because there is a CCTV video (among other documents) that shows everything clearly and that report is written in a way to show Iran as a criminal country. (Recently Israeli ambassador hold up photo of that girl during Iranian president's UN speech)

There is another report (See this search result) about a similar movement during Iran 2009 election that is not true (not obviously but there is no evidence that Iran is guilty. [I am sure about this]).

I wonder has Amnesty International historically documented wrong non-Iran report? (Maybe because of media pressure, the world situation or something else.)

    I've voted to close this question as off-topic on this site. Skeptics.SE is about questioning notable claims, not about asking for information about a particular NGO. You could ask, for instance, whether it is true that Mahsa Amini was detained and abused violently by police, or whether it's true that she fell into a coma and later died as a consequence of the abuse. Amnesty International is a notable organization, and if there's reason to assume that they're making false claims about this event, such a question would be on topic. But your question – that's off-topic here.

  • @Schmuddi: If I ask a question (it is true that Mahsa Amini was detained ...) that I know its answer so why should I ask that? Can I ask such questions?

  • @Schmuddi: So you say I am wrong about that claim and I should accept their report and ask "Is there reason they're making false claims about this event" instead? In that case, won't you refer to the west media or Wikipedia while they all hide the truth?

  • As for your first comment: There's exactly one type of questions that you can ask: those in which you wonder whether a notable claim is actually true. A claim is notable if either the person/organization making the claim is notable, or if a sufficiently large number of people believe the claim to be true even if there's no single person/organization making the claim. Anything else is off-topic here, but feel free to ask them elsewhere, e.g. on politics.stackexchange.com (this is the free part of the internet, after all).

    No, a "why" question wouldn't be on-topic. What would be on-topic would be, as I did say earlier, the question "Is the claim made by Amnesty International correct that Iran is guilty of the human rights violation described in one of their articles?". Chances are that answers would include references to western publications, perhaps even including Wikipedia (rather than relying on, let's say, publications by Iran). If you're unhappy about that, well, then this site just isn't for you I'm afraid.
