Tehran, Jul. 24 – Mohammad Javad Larijani, Secretary of Iran’s High Council for Human Rights and a top Judiciary official, said on Friday that the Islamic Republic of Iran was the “flag bearer for human rights in the world”.

Speaking to the official Iranian news agency, IRNA, Larijani claimed, “The post-election (June 2009) incidents greatly betrayed the national interests of the country and cannot be compared even with such crimes as those that happened in Kahrizak prison and elsewhere. Kahrizak incidents were a private affair; whereas the post-election riots were a national crime”.

International human rights organisations have accused Iranian authorities of systematically torturing, raping and murdering anti-government activists in the infamous Kahrizak prison, on the southern outskirts of the capital, following the post-election unrest.

The High Council for Human Rights includes officials from the Judiciary and the foreign, intelligence, justice, and Islamic Guidance ministers as well as the State Security Force commander and the head of the state Prisons Organisation.
