Iranian regime brazenly lashes out the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights

On 29 June 2014, Secretary of so-called Iran’s Human Rights Council Mohammad Javad Larijani in a letter to UN High Commissionaire for Human Rights Navi Pillay shamelessly criticized the UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in Iran, Ahmed Shaheed, for his baseless allegations against Tehran, branded his method of presenting human rights reports as biased and being blown out of proportion.

In his letter to Ms. Navi Pillay, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights,Mohammad Javad Larijani accused the Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in Iran of siding with terrorists as he claimed, referring to resistance and human rights activism of organizations based- abroad particularly those who are campaigning against the regime’ on-going violations against Ahwazi Arab people and other ethnic groups and described the approaches of Ahmad Shaheed of compiling reports as non-professional and propaganda led by separatist groups and contradict  to the principles of being a neutral rapporteur.

In his remarks in March, Larijani also ruled out all the claims of Ahmad Shaheed regarding the human rights violations perpetrating by regime against ethnic groups particularly the executions of Ahwazi Arabs, Kurdish and Baluchs prisoners and said “It is a shame for the human rights rapporteur to label terrorists(ethnic groups such as Ahwazi, Kurdish) as human rights advocates,”.

To be noted that the Iranian regime in the past few months executed Ali Chebieshat and Sayed Khaled Mousawi from Susa city, two members of Al-Hawar cultural organization, Hadi Rashedi and Hashem Shabbani and 4 political prisoners, Ghazi Abbasi, Abdul-Reza Amir Khanafereh, Abdul Amir Mojaddami, and Jasim Moghadam Payam from Falahia city.
