London's Literature Remains Imposing Due to Domineering Nature

Speaking to ICANA on Saturday, the senior lawmaker added: "The remarks by British Charge d’Affaires to Tehran Jane Marriott still indicate the imposing attitude and literature of this country."

He said London thinks it should maintain its authoritative attitude and still consider the world its colony. "that is why in their recent letter they speak of 'standard' police behavior and in fact consider everything they do standard."

Referring to the political unrests in Iran after the 2009 parliamentary elections, Sorouri said the UK rallied behind Iranian rioters to undermine the huge people's turnout in the elections. "But today we see that they are not allowing their opponents to voice objections even in the virtual media and detain everyone as offenders."

He said thousands of arrests and killing of five people speak of violation of human rights by Britain. "The continued silence of the Western media, including Americans only prove that discrimination hs become standard in the West," said the lawmaker.

Britain told Iran on Thursday it was happy to discuss its handling of street unrest after President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad accused its police of “savage” aggression against demonstrators.

Britain helped lead Western condemnation of Iran’s crackdown on protests against Ahmadinejad’s re-election in June 2009. He was quick on Wednesday to criticize the British police’s “crushing attack” on unarmed citizens.

In a letter to Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman ramin Mehmanparast, Britain’s top diplomat in Tehran said she hoped such openness would encourage Tehran to allow a UN-appointed investigator looking into alleged human rights violations in Iran to enter the country.

“I would remind you that the UK has a standing invitation to all UN special rapporteurs and has facilitated the visits of a number of these rapporteurs to the UK in recent years,” British Charge d’Affaires Jane Marriott wrote, noting that Ahmadinejad had called for the United Nations to condemn Britain’s action.

“I urge the Iranian government to extend a similar courtesy to the dedicated UN special rapporteur for the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ahmed Shaheed, to enable him to address the international community’s grave concerns about ongoing human rights violations within Iran.”

On Friday, Iran's Foreign Ministry summoned British charge d'affaires over the continued use of violence by police against protesters and called on the British government to “heed the demands and true requests” of protesters.
