In his latest report to the UN Human Rights Council, the global body’s special rapporteur for human rights in Iran, Ahmed Shaheed, repeated his baseless accusations against the Islamic Republic regarding the status of human rights.
Shaheed has also accused Iranian President Hassan Rouhani of failing to improve human rights in the country.
In a reaction to the UN rapporteur’s biased report, Secretary General of Iran's High Council for Human Rights Mohammad Javad Larijani announced on Tuesday that Shaheed has turned into a “media actor” in the hands of westerners.
He also lashed out the West for interfering in Iran’s internal affairs by making such unsubstantiated reports, and added, “We have responded in detail to all the allegations leveled against the Islamic Republic of Iran.”
Larijani went on to say that the anti-Iran accusations, presented in the form of human rights reports, all “contain professional flaws.”
On June 17, 2011, the UN Human Rights Council, under pressure from the US and its allies, named former Maldivian foreign minister, Ahmed Shaheed, as human rights rapporteur on Iran.
Tehran insists that the appointment of a UN special rapporteur on Iran's human rights situation is a selective, politically-motivated and unacceptable move.
Iran’s ambassador to the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) also slammed the Ahmed Shaheed who has repeated his baseless accusations against the Islamic Republic regarding the status of human rights.

In reply, Iran’s ambassador to the UNHRC, Mohsen Naziri Asl, said Shaheed’s report has been prepared on the basis of western standards and disregards Iran’s culture and judicial procedures.
The envoy also criticized the UN rapporteur for turning a blind eye to the West’s unilateral sanctions on Iran, which he said have violated the basic rights of Iranians.
