I think that in countries like Iran, the judicial system is an extension of the State and is attuned to the “party line”.
You do know the president of the USA chooses supreme court judges? And you do understand that the president of the USA is elected by corporate
sponsors?(whoever has the most expensive campaign is most likely to win)
And do those judges not tow the party line?
Clearly, high profile cases which achieve notoriety because the outside world becomes involved become an area of high sensitivity. Mostly, the
emphasis in Iran is to get things through the courts pronto and with rudimentary judicial review.
How do you know that? You do not. You argument is based on the limited information that you get through media channels that are inherently anti-Iran.
As such, your arguments come off as an attack on the nation of Iran.
The head of Iran’s judiciary is personally appointed by Ali Khamenei, so political interference is not just a risk – it is
Pretty much the same as the US president choosing supreme court judges. Oh, you say the president is elected. To that I respond with a question...is
he really elected if people are tricked into voting through bread and games?
Human Rights in Iran are an affront. The judicial system sits on top of the perpetration of human rights abuse. This fact is documented and
You do not know that, again you base that argument on the limited information that you have. Why? I suppose you have an agenda. I will get to that
I agree that there is a LOT of corruption in Iran. In courts, police affairs and even governmental affairs. But then again, the corruption in Iran is
highlighted to us outside of Iran, but the corruptions in the Western countries we live in is always kept hidden from the people as much as possible.
Say for example, in the US; when a minority is abused by police...what are the chances for justice to pass? Do the police not stick together and file
false reports? Well, the same happens in Iran but it is highlighted to such an extent that you feel it is beyond relative proportions. It isn't.
There is one thing however that is ripping Iran apart and that is foreign meddling, for example, drug trafficking that originates in Afghanistan.
Drugs that reach Iran through Saudi Arabia to weaken the population. With succes I must add because there are millions of hard-drug addicts in Iran
because they lack a job, lack oppurtunities.. and this is partially or entirely to blame on sanctions put on Iran because there is so much negative
news pumped around in the MSM by those who would like to infiltrate Iran and destroy it. I would say that corrupt officials in Iran also gain funds by
letting this happen and not taking a stand against these corrupting influences. My guess is that these officials within Iran are the best friends with
Israel, the UK, America, Saudi Arabia because it fattens their wallets an stomachs.
So, in a country where the judiciary is an extension government policy and not independent (as in the liberal Western democracies), then court
rulings are by definition “from the government”.
Which liberal Western countries? Italy where the government has been hijacked by the ECB? Greece? America where the justice system is in the pocket of
the richest people?
Why is your focus on the corrupt justice system in Iran and not your own nation? Because you have a special connection to Iran or because you have a
