TEHRAN – Iran’s Judiciary spokesman Masoud Setayeshi on Tuesday emphasized that the Judicial system of the Islamic Republic will put on the agenda the legal follow-ups of the European Parliament’s inappropriate action against the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).
Setayeshi said that the European Parliament’s blacklisting of the IRGC was an improper action under the influence of the lobbies of the MKO terrorist group.
He noted, although, in the eyes of Iran the action is non-binding and is lacking legitimacy on the basis of international laws and regulations; however, the act cannot be ignored.
In accordance with the Constitution of the Islamic Republic, the IRGC is an official military force of the sacred establishment, which relies on the popularity and support among the Iranian people; so, we are surprised by the so-called flagbearers of human rights and rule of law, how they infringed the standards of international relations and regulations, he said.
The Judiciary system of the Islamic Republic of Iran categorically and seriously condemns the unwise act and show-off made by the European Parliament, and it will pursue all necessary and appropriate efforts through the High Council for Human Rights and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, he said, adding that the results of the follow-ups will be informed as soon as possible.
