RNA – On the anniversary of the martyrdom of Ayatollah Dr. Sayyed Mohammad Beheshti and his companions, the National Conference of the Judiciary was held with the attendance of Imam Khamenei via videoconference this morning, June 27, 2020.
The following is the excerpt of the statements Imam Khamenei made at this conference:
“The recent actions of the judiciary in ‘reviving public rights’ are truly pleasing. Prosecutors must try their best to defend the rights of the people. These rights include prosecuting those who harm the environment and confronting the unnecessary shutdown of manufacturing firms.”
“People’s easy access to the judiciary, efforts to improve people’s judicial awareness, constant and direct contact with the people and benefiting from assistance and information from the public in issues such as fighting corruption are examples of the judiciary’s being people-oriented.”
“The American President talks about ten years of imprisonment for those who bring down symbols of slavery and racism, and the United States government separates the children of immigrants from their parents. But most American mainstream media and movies depict US courts as being centers of absolute justice.”
“One of the main duties of the judiciary branch is fighting corruption in any form. Fighting corruption should start from the judiciary in a serious and expert manner. The criteria in fighting corruption should only be the truth, justice and law, and no other considerations.”
“The movement to fight corruption, which may be witnessed now in the judiciary during Hujjat al-Islam Ebrahim Raeisi’s term, began during the time of Mr. Amoli-Larijani. He had started this effort from both within and outside of the judiciary.”
