Ejei: “Iranians abroad can return to their homeland, and the obstacles must be removed.”
WANA (May 28) – Some Iranians living abroad have encountered legal or judicial problems for traveling to Iran in the past years. Numerous unnecessary laws, sometimes extra-legal strictures, have made it difficult to travel to their country.
The head of Iran’s judiciary, Mohseni Ejei, admitted today that one of the most critical demands of Iranians abroad is to make their travel more accessible.
While expressing dissatisfaction with the performance of some organizations and institutions related to the affairs of Iranians abroad, Ejei ordered to facilitate the entry of Iranians abroad to their homeland.
“Many Iranians abroad can return to their homeland, and the obstacles must be removed. Why don’t the institutions answer the questions and inquiries of Iranians abroad?” Mohseni Ejei said.
The main objections of Iranians living overseas are firstly from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and its consular department, and secondly, criticisms are related to the judiciary in Iran.
Iranian citizens residing abroad may encounter legal and judicial obstacles when returning to their home country. However, the judicial system can only resolve most of these issues.
The leader of Iran’s judiciary has stated that even if an Iranian citizen living abroad has a legal or criminal case pending, they should not be immediately arrested upon arrival at the airport. Instead, they should be permitted to address their point through proper legal channels once they return to their home country.
