Senior MP Deplores Violation of Human Rights by US Officials

"The US claims to be an advocate of human rights and accuses Iran of human rights violations, but a cursory glance at the deeds of most of American officials shows us numerous crimes against humanity and blatant instances of the violation of human rights committed by them," Member of the Iranian parliament's Presiding Board Hossein Sobhaninia said on Thursday.

"US officials have taken every opportunity since the [victory of] the Islamic Revolution, in line with their hostile approach, to organize anti-revolutionary and anti-Islamic Republic movements," he stated.

"America is making attempts to push baseless accusations of human rights violations against the Islamic Republic at any opportunity and under any false pretext, and the parliamentarians have thus concluded that it is necessary to make an effort for the exposition of human rights violations [committed] by the US," Sobhaninia stated.

These are only a few instances of the many US violations of human rights and the first step by the Islamic Republic in publicizing the US crimes against humanity, the parliamentarian stressed, vowing more revelations were to be made.

The Iranian parliament is scheduled to hold debates on Sunday about a bill requiring a series of tough sanctions against 26 US officials for frequent and flagrant violations of human rights.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a parliament session here in Tehran on Wednesday, Rapporteur of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Kazem Jalali said that the bill has already been submitted to the parliament's presiding board and will be put on parliament's working agenda on Sunday.

These American officials have perpetrated crimes that amounted to blatant violation of human rights, he added.
