Those claiming to fight terrorism lie: prosecutor general

GORGAN, March 5 (MNA) -- National Prosecutor General Gholam-Hossein Mohseni-Ejei said those who claim fight against terrorism are lying.

“Some countries use the war on terrorism as a pretext to invade other countries; not only do they lie, they also spread terrorism,” the prosecutor said during a conference on velayat-e faqih (rule by the supreme jurisprudent) in northern city of Gorgan on Wednesday.

 

Ejei said Abdolmalek Rigi - the Jundullah terrorist leader who was captured on February 23 - served as a “link” between the United States and terrorism.

 

He added that Rigi’s capture by Iranian security forces was a show of force and Iran’s determination in the battle against terrorism.

 

On the West’s motive for supporting Rigi, the prosecutor general said the enemies had sought to drive a wedge between Shiites and Sunnis through spread of terrorism in the eastern regions of the country and then point the finger of blame toward the Shiites.

 

“They (enemies) tried to make the east of the country look insecure, and to that end they trained and nurtured a hooligan,” he added.
