MP: Iran to Sue US over Human Rights Abuse

Head of the Parliament (Majlis) National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Alaeddin Boroujerdi made the remark during a speech on the subject of 'Islamic Awakening' in the Middle Eastern and North African countries, Press TV reported on Thursday.

Boroujerdi noted that the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission plans to draft a bill to have the case against the US officials, who have violated human rights and to introduce them to the world.

He went on to say that the proposed legislation has the backing of the Islamic Republic's judiciary system and that the country will pursue its efforts to prosecute US officials for human rights abuses.

Elsewhere in his remarks, the senior Iranian legislator turned the spotlight on the ongoing popular revolutions in the Middle East and North Africa, saying "the mounting wave of Islamic Awakening surging throughout the region is a reality that has changed global equation in favor of the Muslim world."

Boroujerdi placed a high premium on the significant development transpiring in Egypt, noting that the North African country now belongs to the Muslim Ummah and has become diametrically opposed to the Israeli regime.

Commenting on the still-unfolding mass protests in Bahrain, the Iranian official stated that the Persian Gulf state is now witnessing blatant crimes against humanity.

The people of Bahrain have been protesting since February 14, demanding an end to the rule of the Al Khalifa dynasty and calling for reforms.

On the current developments in Libya, Boroujerdi said the United States seeks to foment the civil war by fanning the flames of sectarian strife in the country.

Libyan anti-government forces, inspired by revolutions that toppled authoritarian rulers in neighboring Tunisia and Egypt, are fighting to dethrone Muammar Gaddafi.
