Iran human rights abuse reviewed
15-Feb-2010 (one comment)

Iran’s human rights record was reviewed today by the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva, under its quadrennial Universal Periodic Review (UPR) procedure.

Iran’s delegation was headed by Mohammad Javad Ardashir Larijani, Secretary General of Iran’s High Council for Human Rights, who had previsouyl used a racist Persian term to refer to US President Barak Obama. He pointed out what he called “biting comments” made by “Western nations” whose delegations were present at the meeting.

On the issue of the imprisonment of human rights activists, the Iranian delegation also claimed that “Some of the allegations brought against HR activists have to do with espionage, terrorism, incitement to hatred and bigotry, under the guise of being activists.”

Many western delegations including the US and EU countries expressed their “concern” over the situation of human rights in Iran and called on Iran to be held accountable for its human rights violations.

France accused Iran’s government of engaging in “the bloody repression of its own people.” Canada condemned Iran’s violent crackdowns and torture as being contrary to Iran’s constitution. Spain, Germany, and Denmark urged Iran to respect international covenants, and end discrimination against minorities, women and children. Australia urged the Ahmadinejad government to allow a visit by the UN Secretary-General and the UN investigator on torture.

Larijani is the head of the human rights council in the judiciary and a top adviser to the supreme leader. Here is a quote from this "Hunam rights" head, to show his character:

when Larijani was asked about the mass execution of political prisoners
in Iran in a press conference, he answered "I have a good number of
birth records, it is about 4%, we have two million new people each
year. I am a positive person, optimistic minded."[1]
