Iran opposed to UN rapporteur’s visit

Iran is opposed to any visit by Ahmed Shaheed, the UN special rapporteur on human rights situation in Iran, due to his ‘invalid’ reports, revealed Xinhua citing secretary of Iran’s Human Rights bureau, Mohammad-Javad Larijani. 

In his latest report in March, Shaheed charged Iran with cases of execution, arrest of journalists, confessions under duress, and denying religious, ethnic and sexual minorities of their basic rights. Larijani said Shaheed’s March report is ‘flawed’, adding: ‘Shaheed gives references to mere allegations’.
