Iran deems UN Special Rapporteur as “political”

The Deputy Director of International Affairs at the Judiciary’s Human Rights Headquarters said on August 6, 2017, that designating a Special Rapporteur with a country mandate for Iran is considered as “completely political”, according to the state-run Tasnim news agency.
“Iran has a fundamental stance on the issue of the Special Rapporteur with a country mandate and will not accept it under any circumstances; because with the existence of a Thematic Special Rapporteur there is no need for a country Special Rapporteur and there are definitely other goals”, Kazem Gharib Abadi added.
