Judiciary Official Blasts Britain for Leading Anti-Iran Human Rights Projects

Deputy Chief of Iran's Judiciary and head of the country's Human Rights Headquarters Kazzem Qaribabadi lashed out at Britain for steering human rights projects against Tehran.

“The anti-Iran project over human rights is British” as the UN special rapporteurs for Iran are supported by the British government, Qaribabadi said.

He added that most of those rapporteurs live in the UK and that the country leads measures to extend their missions and to push for resolutions against Iran.

Qaribabadi denounced the western states, including the US, for misusing human rights issues.

He said that these countries began considering the human rights issues following the World War II and after they killed millions of innocent people.

That’s while, the official added, Islam had already raised the importance of the human rights issues by presenting teachings, including those on how people should respect each other’s rights.

Qaribabadi also referred to the human rights situation in Iran, and said that the Judiciary is making utmost efforts to improve the rights situation in the country.

"We do not claim that we are acting perfectly over the human right issues. No country can make such a claim. But we are doing all we can to support and promote the human rights," he noted.

The judiciary official also said that Iran’s view to promote its human rights situation is based on a religious and legal attitude, and is not affected by outside pressure and resolutions.

In relevant remarks in June, Qaribabadi had lambasted Britain for violation of human rights by mistreating refugees and asylum seekers and exercising systematic racism.

“The UK’s systematic racism and vie for dehumanisation is deeply-rooted in its history, in which you see a total disregard for and horrendous violations of human rights!” Qaribabadi said.

His comments followed reports that the UK government had a scheme to electronically tag asylum seekers on arrival in the country.
