Top Judge Urges Legal Support for Iranian Expatriates

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s Judiciary Chief Hojatoleslam Seyed Ebrahim Raeisi emphasized the need for decent judicial support from all Iranian organizations for the nationals residing abroad.

“The administration and all the sectors and organizations should provide the necessary judicial support for Iranian expatriates, and we should maintain the connection of our fellow countrymen residing abroad with their culture and national customs and traditions,” Raeisi said in a meeting with directors of Iranian media and news agencies in Tehran on Tuesday.

He underlined that close interaction with Iranian nationals in other countries would be in conformity with Iran’s policies and benefit both the country’s national security and the expatriates.

The Judiciary chief further described the people of the country as Iran’s main “social asset and major component of power”, saying that the enemies are unable to take action against the Islamic Republic not because they do not intend to, but because they are faced with the Iranian people who safeguard the Islamic Revolution.

Warning of hostile plots to harm Iran, Hojatoleslam Raeisi said all organizations are duty-bound to stand against the enemies.

The Parliament needs to pass the necessary laws, the administration should adopt the appropriate economic, cultural and social policies, and the Judiciary should also vigilantly take action against the individuals seeking to establish the enemy’s foothold in the country, he added.

In a meeting with top judicial authorities in 2017, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei called on the Judiciary to legally pursue international issues and declare its stances on various subjects, such as sanctions or the US freeze on Iran’s assets.

“The Judiciary should act through a legal position on issues such as sanctions, American confiscations (of Iran’s assets), terrorism, or support for the world’s oppressed characters like (Nigerian cleric) Sheikh Zakzaky or support for Muslims in Myanmar and Kashmir,” Ayatollah Khamenei underscored.

Highlighting the Judiciary’s significant status at home, Imam Khamenei said it should vigorously protect the rights of people and take action against lawbreakers.
