Tehran, Iran, Dec. 02 – A senior Iranian cleric accused France on Friday of human rights violations.

Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati, the influential head of the powerful Guardians Council, the religious theocracy’s highest vetting organ, told Tehran’s Friday prayers worshippers that the world’s “propaganda empire” had censored news of the “realities” in Western countries such as France.

Jannati described a recent resolution by the Third Committee of the United Nations General Assembly which criticised widespread human rights abuses in Iran as “obscene”.

“How much more shameless and impudent can you become?”, the ultra-conservative cleric asked Westerners. “When in France there were riots for one month by the impoverished, were you dead that you didn’t say that there were human rights abuses there?”, he said.

“When in our country a minor issue arises, they quickly call it human rights abuse”, the ultra-conservative cleric, who is a key ally of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said.

Jannati said the United States must answer for the crimes committed in Abu-Ghraib Prison near Baghdad, but the radical Shiite cleric remained mum on the recent discovery of a torture centre in Iraq’s Interior Ministry. The torture centre was being run by agents of the Iranian regime under the control of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards.
