Supreme Leader Urges Judiciary to Take Action against Sponsors of Iran Sanctions.
TEHRAN (FNA)- Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei called on the Judiciary to prosecute the countries behind sanctions against Iran and advocates of terrorism, and support the Muslims across the world.
"The Judiciary should take legal action over issues like sanctions, the Americans' seizure (of Iran's properties) and (certain countries' support for) terrorism, and in support of the world's oppressed figures, including (the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria) Sheikh (Ibraheem) Zakzaky," Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing a meeting with Judiciary officials, including Judiciary Chief Sadeq Amoli Larijani in Tehran on Monday.
Stressing the need for the Iranian Judiciary's support for the Muslims in Myanmar and Kashmir, he said that the Judiciary should take legal action and proclaim out loud its agreement or opposition to these issues in the world.
His remarks came as Amoli Larijani has on many occasions blasted the western countries for making instrumental use of human rights issues.
"Human rights bodies have turned into an instrument to put independent countries under pressure," Amoil Larijani said in March.
The Iranian judiciary chief slammed the human rights bodies for keeping silent in the wake of crimes committed by Israel and the massacre of the Yemeni people by Saudi Arabia.
"It is as if the international organizations have stood by the oppressors instead of the oppressed," Amoli Larijani said.
