Iran rejects UN human rights report as 'unfair'


Tehran, Oct 29 (IANS) The recent report by the UN rapporteur on the human rights situation in Iran is unfair and politically motivated, the official IRNA news agency said on Wednesday quoting Iran's permanent mission to the United Nations.


The report ignores realities in the Islamic republic and echoes the political whims of certain countries, Xinhua cited Iran's envoy as telling IRNA.

The claims were "repetitious and futile" he said, adding that the anti-Iran report was an indication of a "biased" look toward Iran.

Executions have risen and the condition of women has worsened in the Islamic republic, the UN investigator and special rapporteur on human rights in Iran, Ahmed Shaheed, said in his latest address to the members of the UN General Assembly Monday.

Iran has dismissed several times the reports by the UN human rights institutions, saying that they did not reflect the realities in the country.
