Iran ‘would not care’ for Western human rights

TEHRAN, April 20 (MNA) – Iran’s Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Amoli Larijani has said that Iran does not care for Westerners’ ‘human right’ claims.

Amoli Larijani addressed the meeting of Police Commanders on Saturday where he made hints to the international statements against Iran on human rights.

He said that western countries mounted objections on death penalty in Iran; however, he believed that “but we do not care what they say.”

European Union, British, and the US officials had recently accused Iran for death penalty and Iran has already responded that death penalty is due to Qisas (a judicial verdict for murderers) and Larijani believed that “this is right thing.”

Larijani sideswiped to Iran’s eastern borders developments, and asserted that in eastern borders of the country Iranian, “Iranian youths are martyred on a daily basis to fight drug transfer from Afghanistan to Europe and the EU should be thankful to Iran but they accuse Iran for Qisas.”

“They (Westerners) dictate us to stop Qisas and ask Iran to recognize same-sex marriage in Iran and we do not care for what they want to impose upon us,” maintained Larijani, and that “our laws is in accordance to Divine rules and westerners are nothing regarding Divine rules.”
