Iran's Prosecutor General Mohammad Movahhedi-Azad underlined that within the framework of the same policy, the aggression of the Zionist regime against the oppressed people in Gaza “is considered a threat to world peace and security”.

Referring to the BRICS meeting regarding the role of modern technologies in the prevention and control of crimes, especially in the digital space, he said that on the one hand, modern technologies have contributed to the well-being of human societies, and on the other, they have provided opportunities for abuse by criminals.

In the final statement, chief justices of BRICS member states pointed to the essential role of digital solutions in supporting the rule of law and fighting crime, the sharing of best practices in the development and introduction of digital solutions, the need for advanced training of members, the fight against the use of information and communication technology for terrorism purposes, and combating corruption and crimes in accordance with domestic laws.
