Iran Refutes Report of UN As "Lies"
Tehran, February 5 (KCNA) -- Iranian Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani said on Thursday in a meeting that the recent report issued by the UN special rapporteur for human rights in Iran is full of lies.

The rapporteur had already issued false reports on the status of human rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran, he said. It is amazing that a rapporteur who is responsible for observing international legal rights has expressed such biased reports about Iran, he said.

There are numerous cases of human rights violations by western countries, the Judiciary chief said.

They invaded Iraq under pretext of weapons of mass destruction and massacred hundred of thousands of innocent civilians there but no one has ever asked them under what principles of human rights they occupied the country, he said.

The Islamic Republic of Iran is the most democratic country in the region, he said.
