Judiciary Chief Strongly Rejects Ahmed Shahid's Report on Iran
Tehran, March 17 (KCNA) -- Head of Judiciary Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani on Wednesday strongly rejected a report on Iran's human rights by Ahmed Shahid as another scandal for the western governments.

He said that the report on human rights in Iran released by UN human rights rapporteur Ahmed Shahid is 'totally unfounded and full of lies.

He said in a meeting with senior officials of the Judiciary that currently, the human rights have been degraded in the western communities to the extent that the people of the entire world know that the western governments do not respect human rights.

Unfortunately, the western governments, especially the US are using the human rights as a pressure lever against independent states, he said.
