Human rights report against Iran based on claims of anti-revolutionary elements: judiciary chief

Tehran, Jan 29, IRNA – Most charges against Iran in the new draft report by Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran, Ahmed Shaheed, are based on remarks made by anti-revolutionary elements, Judiciary chief Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani said Wednesday.


The report is full of fabricated issues and misinterpretations, Ayatollah Larijani said.

The United States which claims to be a human rights advocate continues to back governments which have not held even one election during their political life, he added.

The judiciary chief said that the report criticizes hanging of drug traffickers in Iran while this law is being exercised in many other countries, including the United States, but they are not under pressure by the so-called human rights advocates.

Rapporteurs are naturally expected to remain impartial while reports on the human rights situation in Iran are based on remarks by anti-revolutionary elements who try to present a wrong image of Iran and the Islamic system, Ayatollah Larijani said.
