TEHRAN - Iran’s Judiciary Chief Gholamhossein Mohseni Ejeyee has blasted the western countries allegations about violation of human rights by the Islamic Republic, saying that such claims are disgraceful lies.
Mohseni Ejeyee categorically dismissed the human rights accusations leveled against Iran by some western states and described such a move as disgraceful at a time when the West does not show any respect for human rights.
The Iranian judiciary chief, meantime, referred to the anti-Iran Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO also known as MEK, NCRI or PMOI) terrorist group which is operating against Iran in some western countries with the backing of those governments.
“The hypocrites (MKO members) who assassinated and martyred thousands of innocent people, tortured in the harshest way, and destroyed people’s property, today are welcomed and sheltered by some human rights advocates and even appreciate them while considering the Islamic Republic a violator of human rights.”
Last month, Iran’s High Council of Human Rights in a statement rapped the U.S. and other western states for instrumental use of terrorist groups to attain their colonial goals.
