Human rights not a tool to be manipulated or left aside: HCHR Chef

Human rights not a tool to be manipulated or left aside: HCHR Chef
IRAN  - The New Secretary of High Council for Human Rights stressed that human rights should not be considered as a tool to be manipulated or be left aside, saying safeguarding HR is the responsibility of all parts of the Islamic Republic.

The New Secretary of High Council for Human Rights refereed to the article 59 of the Constitution, which considers Iran's Judiciary responsible for safeguarding social and individual rights of the nation, saying "this is an absolute duty both inside and outside of the country."

"We will make bigger attempts than before so we can prevent any violation of our nation's rights by foreign parties" Bagheri-Kani noted; "we will also apply all the international legal tools to protect Iranians' individual and social rights."

Saying that doing justice is the duty of the judicial system, he noted "remarkable achievements" with respect to developing justice in society during last four decades of Revolution.

"But it seems there have been very few measures taken for the elaboration and presentation of justice in the Islamic Republic of Iran. We could strengthen the roots of justice and institutionalize it in society through communications with the international bodies and cooperating with other governmental bodies at the same time."

Regarding human rights, Bagheri-Kani said that the issue is a fact based on our religious principles and the values of the Islamic revolution. "It is actually the soft power of the Islamic Republic and a crucial factor in our national security. That's why human rights could not be considered as a tool to be manipulated or be left aside. They have existed through all eras and safeguarding them is the responsibility of all parts of the Islamic Republic" he mentioned.

"We do not consider human rights as a luxurious commodity which is advertised during the elections and after that it is put aside so we would falsely assume that the public has also forgotten about it", Bagheri-Kani said.

Last Sunday, Iran's Judiciary Chief Ebrahim Raeisi appointed Ali Bagheri Kani as the new deputy of international affairs of the Judicial System and the Secretary of HCHR.

Ali Bagheri Kani is an Iranian diplomat who was the Deputy Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council from 2007 to 2013 and has also served as Deputy Foreign Minister for Europe.
