On Tuesday in Tehran during a meeting with the members of Iran’s High Council of Human Rights, Iranian Judiciary Chief Sadegh Amoli Larijani, highlighted the different aspects of human rights issue in confronting with the West: the Western definition of human rights should not be taken as a divine word of no imperfection. He called thorough criticism of the Western edition of human rights and described the human rights case between Iran and the West a political case: “It seems that the US and Europe case against the Islamic Republic of Iran is not over observing the human rights considerations, because not far from Iran in the region we see what is happening in Bahrain where Bahraini citizens are fighting for suffrage while it is 40 years that we are holding elections in Iran”, as Amoli Larijani said. He continued underlighting how none of human rights propaganda against Iran is practiced against Saudi Arabia even though “in Saudi Arabia people have never heard of ballot boxes”, as he said. The senior official also declared: “All these show that the Westerners’ objective is political bid to pose pressure on the Islamic Republic of Iran while sometimes they also add a flavor of legal and theoretic arguments to their cases”. Iran’s Judiciary Chief said that he is against the presence of UN special rapporteur on human rights in Iran, dismissing the base for establishing the mandate, and that the dialogue with rapporteur in abroad should be upon the condition of effectiveness.
