Iran actual 'claimant' of human rights issue, not 'criminal Western pretenders'

TEHRAN, Jun. 27 (MNA) – Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said "when it comes to the issue of human rights, it is actually the Islamic Republic that stands in the position of 'the claimant' in the face of 'the criminal Western pretenders.'

Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks here on Wednesday in a meeting with Iranian Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani, judiciary officials and director generals of justicedepartments across Iran on the occasion of Judiciary Week and the martyrdom anniversary of Ayatollah Mohammad Hosseini Beheshti along with his 72 colleagues who were martyred at the terrorist bomb blast in 1981. Ayatollah Beheshti served as head of the Judiciary in the early months after the victory of the Islamic revolution. 

Ayatollah Khamenei hailed the Judiciary’s efforts in restoring the Iranian nations’ rights against the bullying policies of the enemies.

He also urged the officials of Iran's Judiciary, as one of the three power branches in Iran, to cooperate with the government towards resolving the country’s economic problems.

Pointing to the United States’ human rights violations in various parts of the world, as well as the crimes made by France and Britain in Africa and the Indian subcontinent over the past decades, Leader of Islamic Revolution denounced the Western states for pretending to be advocates of human rights while supporting terrorist groups and acts of terror.

Ayatollah Khamenei said when it comes to the issue of human rights, it is actually the Islamic Republic that stands in the position of “the claimant” in the face of “the criminal Western pretenders.”
