Deputy Head of Judiciary: West Incompetent to Judge Human Rights Issues

TEHRAN (FNA)- An Iranian top judiciary official on Wednesday blasted the West's instrumental use of human rights issue against Iran and other independent states, and said that the West lacks the necessary competence to judge on the other countries' human rights records.


"Our definition of human rights makes us the claimant and the western countries are actually the accused," First Deputy Head of the Judiciary Ebrahim Raeesi said, addressing an expert meeting on human rights here in Tehran today.

He blasted the efforts made by the West to accuse Iran of human rights violation, and stressed, "We are standing as supporters of human rights and human and the West is considered as the accused."

"Today, the US and unreal supporters of human rights are depriving people of their basic rights and do not allow them to even express their opinions and views," Raeesi reiterated.

Earlier in May, Head of Iran's High Council of Human Rights Mohammad Javad Larijani condemned the western countries' political attitude towards human rights, saying that the West is using the issue as an instrument to impose pressure on independent states.

Earlier in March, the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), in a report, reviewed the United States' human rights record for the first time in its history. The council then issued a document making 228 suggestions to the US to improve its rights record.

Iran has always lashed out at the western countries for using human rights issues as a tool and pretext for pressurizing independent states to conceal their own crimes and wrong deeds.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in November lambasted continued violation of human rights by certain European countries, and asked them to listen to the demands of their people.

Also in November, the Iranian Foreign Ministry issued a report on the violation of human rights by the US inside and outside its borders, and urged Washington to join the international conventions which prohibit such crimes.

It was stressed in the Foreign Ministry report that the United States, as a self-proclaimed standard bearer of defense for the human rights in the world, has despite the international community and the UN demand, and even despite President Barack Obama's promise, still not shut down the Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib horrendous prisons.

It is stressed in the report that the United States has not yet joined the most important convention related to the economic, social and cultural rights that is among the most important human rights documents.

The Children's Rights Committee of the United Nations, too, has announced that the United States has been one of the greatest producers and distributors of the world child pornography products, while it is now one of the only two countries in the world that have not yet joined the International Children's Rights Convention
