No Need for Rights Rapporteur on Iran

No Need for Rights Rapporteur on Iran

A senior official denounced the appointment of any UN special rapporteur on human rights in Iran as unjustified and invalid.
“The Islamic Republic has always maintained a principled stance on the appointment of a special rapporteur with a country mandate,” Mohammad Javad Larijani, secretary of Iran’s High Council for Human Rights, said on Saturday, Press TV reported.
He criticized the West’s dual policies that had led to such an assignment.
“Iran believes that such an appointment stems from double-standard policies and selective approaches of certain countries within the framework of the UN Human Rights Council,” he said.
Larijani made the statements after the UN special rapporteur on human rights in Iran, Ahmed Shaheed, said in his Twitter account last Wednesday that Pakistani human rights activist Asma Jahangir will replace him.
