Secretary-General of Iran’s High Council for Human Rights Kazem Gharibabadi has said that establishing an Independent International Fact-Finding Mission on the Islamic Republic of Iran is an unreasonable politically motivated action.

Gharibabadi made the remarks on Wednesday on the 53rd session of the Human Rights Council (19 June to 14 July 2023) at the Palais des Nations in Geneva.

He added that the very same countries that provoked the recent riots in Iran and of course were later caught in a similar situation have been the founders of the mechanism.

Nowadays, France is using extreme force against peaceful protests, widespread arbitrary arrests, and extensive restrictions on the Internet and social networks, Gharibabadi highlighted.

He went on to say that in order to suppress the people, the French police force is resorting to the police of the child-killing Zionist regime of Israel.

Saying that today’s session should have investigated the situation in France, Gharibabadi regretted that hypocritical behavior has dominated the human rights mechanisms.

He added that those who claim to support human rights have deliberately kept silent.

Gharibabadi also said that unilateral and oppressive sanctions that have brought pain and suffering to Iranian women and children are crimes against humanity.
