Deterrence power crucial to political, economic security

TEHRAN, Sep. 26 (MNA) – Head of the Judiciary has called for efforts to organize the current state of the lawsuits filed in the whole judiciary system and to bring to an order country’s prisons.

Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani who was addressing a meeting of Judiciary high-ranking officials on Monday on the occasion of the anniversary of Sacred Defense Week, hailed the military for its serving the country and securing sovereignty for the nation. He criticized the view recently received wider publicity in the media and elsewhere that called for slowing pace of development of the military capabilities and staff; “political and economic independence and security would be an impossibility without an effective deterrence power; sovereignty comes with military might, and without power, weak countries would be subdued by hegemonic powers,” he told the meeting.

Amoli Larijani believed that even the enemies had understood the military might Islamic Republic of Iran had gradually gained since the Revolution, and which feared the world powers entertaining domination of the country; “their hesitation in any military invasion of the country stems from this military power,” he added.

In his address, Amoli Larijani also pointed to the status of disorder and prisons brimming with convicts of the General Courts, a phenomenon he believed was not in par with the status of an Islamic country; “the number of prisoners is quite an issue and all officials should strictly supervise the enforcement of law to avoid innocent civilians from entering prisons unnecessarily; however, providing the security of the public is a duty of the Judiciary to which we attend; our judges should understand the nature of a directive on reorganizing the current state of prisons; in execution of the law, judges should give verdicts so as to reduce the number of convicts, which will contribute to the declined prison population, while exercising the law without qualms and undue considerations,” he concluded.
