Western principles of human rights are wrong

Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Imam Khamenei met with the head and senior officials of the Judiciary on June 22, 2024.

At the beginning of the meeting, he paid tribute to the Martyrs of the Judiciary, including martyrs Beheshti and Raisi, both of whom had prominent backgrounds in the Judiciary. Imam Khamenei also expressed gratitude for the dedication and hard work of the head, officials, judges, and staff of this branch.

During the meeting, Imam Khamenei emphasized that in the Quran and other Islamic sources, great emphasis has been placed on issues such as "justice" and considered courage a prerequisite for its implementation. “According to Imam Sajjad (pbuh), the judiciary should act in a way that protects even its enemies from oppression and injustice, and discourages its closest friends from unfair favoritism,” he stated.

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution pointed out the necessity for a plan-oriented approach in the Judiciary and the reform documents of this branch. “These documents must be implemented in a way that will have a tangible impact on key judicial indicators,” he asserted. 

Other points made in the Leader's speech emphasized the requirement for judges to base their rulings on domestic laws rather than Western human rights sources. He also highlighted the significance of continued field visits by the head of the Judiciary, as well as the importance of monitoring the implementation of the promising decisions made during these visits. "Act in a way so that public opinion recognizes the Judiciary as a house of justice and a center of upholding justice without bias," he remarked.

During the meeting, Imam Khamenei voiced concern regarding the delayed processing of cases involving detainees and the consequent prolongation of temporary detention. “The fate of such individuals must be determined as soon as possible so that no one is placed in hardship in prison due to the prolonged handling of their case,” he said.

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution also pointed out the unresolved issue of debt-ridden prisoners, noting that, “There are individuals who, even if they remain in prison for the rest of their lives, do not have the ability to pay off their debts, and this problem needs to be addressed.”

In his closing remarks, Imam Khamenei advised the presidential candidates to refrain from making statements during their televised campaigns that would please the enemy.

“The assumption is that all candidates love Iran and the Islamic Republic, that’s because they aspire to become president within this system and in order to serve the people,” he added.
