UN Rights Report 'Biased'

A member of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee dismissed the recent report on Iran by the UN human rights rapporteur, Ahmed Shaheed, as "biased", saying the world body has failed to address the humanitarian situation in such countries as Yemen.
"The United Nations endorses the report and regards it as reliable while it makes no mention of the crimes committed by the US, Saudi Arabia and the Zionist regime in Syria, Yemen and Iraq," Esmaeil Kosari told ICANA on Monday.
Pointing to the charges leveled against Iran in the report regarding the increased rate of executions for drug crimes, he said, Iran's judicial system applies the death penalty to the criminals who have ruined the lives of thousands of people through smuggling narcotics.
Elsewhere, Kosari said these criminals receive death sentences in Iran while the atrocities committed by Israel and its allies in such regional countries as Syria have never been reflected in UN reports.
He criticized the United Nations for releasing such "one-sided" and "biased" reports without carefully examining them first.
