Ahmed Shaheed will step down from his post as UN Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights Situation in Iran once a successor is appointed, a report said. Shaheed has been named as new UN Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Religion or Belief, the website of Essex University reported recently. He has been given a new role at the university's Human Rights Center. In June 2011, the UN Human Rights Council, under pressure from the US and its allies, appointed Shaheed as human rights rapporteur on Iran.
