TEHRAN – Iran’s hardline judiciary hit out at Britain’s human rights record Tuesday after police hunting the London bombers shot dead an innocent Brazilian by mistake.

“It is British reality that the London police aim at anyone without any hesitation,” judiciary spokesman Jamal Karimi Rad told reporters.

“Britain has a very dark record of human rights violations,” he charged. “Britain’s record in Iraq, in Afghanistan, and the way they treat Muslims is known to everyone.”

The spokesman took particular aim at a recent Foreign Office report which found that “human rights have detoriated further in many areas” in Iran, and asked how Britain dare set itself up as human rights arbiter when its security forces had killed an innocent person.

“This country, with this record, wants to give lessons to the Islamic republic,” Karimi Rad complained.

“We actually know that these remarks are secondary to the discussions on nuclear technology,” he said, referring to talks between Iran and the European Union on its nuclear programme.

Brazilian electrician Jean Charles de Menezes, 27, was shot eight times in the head at a London metro station on Friday after being chased by plainclothes police.

It was the first time police had used three-year-old shoot-to-kill powers against suspected suicide bombers but commanders later admitted they had got the wrong man.
