The issue of arbitrary detainment of persons without the justification of their charges, and the culprits’ inaccessibility to a lawyer is a case of violations of Principles noted in International Instrument of Human Rights, Article 9 of Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and Article 9 of International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights adopted on December 16th 1966. But judicial and security officials in prisons use these deprivations and inaccessibilities as a mean to repress the individuals because of their forced accusations, that this kind of behavior is a violation of Article 5 in Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Ebrahim Raeesi, the head of Judiciary, on Sunday November 3rd 2019, with his presence at the meeting of Human Rights Supreme Council in Islamic Republic of Iran which was held in attendance of Ali Shamkhani and Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ezhei, two of senior members in the Judiciary and in the Supreme National Security Counci of IRI, mentioned that the Islamic Republic of Iran under the title of a government that is structurally rooted in accordance with Human Rights Principles.
Also All Khamenei, Islamic Republic leader, in his talks has acclaimed for times that NO citizen in Iran is being prosecuted for their criticism, however the compulsory and ruthlessly suppression and the expanse of security condition and atmosphere is Iran unveils the obvious fact and accentuates the point that the governmental rulers in Iran are the big staff of sophistry, casuistry and arbitrary interpretation.
