Top judge warns of enemy’s attempt to cause distrust
Tehran, Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Sadegh Amoli Larijani said the enemy is trying to create atmosphere of distrust.
Addressing senior judiciary officials, Ayatollah Amoli Larijani said on Monday, 'We do not deny corruption or problems, but the enemy is making efforts to create the an atmosphere of distrust. We should know that action is needed to confront corruption and problems and services should be regarded along with each other.'
Referring to the new moves of the US administration, especially the US President Donald Trump, against Iran, Ayatollah Larijani said, 'The US has again raised pretexts and funny claims that Iran had shipped missiles to Yemen, trying to adopt mischievous measures. This is while, Yemen is sieged and they do not even allow medicine imports there; so, how the Islamic Republic can send missiles to the country? The claims are also a new plot which will be foiled like always thanks to the public presence on the scene and attention and awareness of officials.'
Touching on high public turnout in the nationwide February 11 rallies, marking the victory anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Larijani said all officials should be thankful of public insight as the biggest God given blessing.
Public presence has led to growing national strength and foiling of hostilities, said the Ayatollah, adding, 'The enemies of the Islamic Republic, especially the US and its allies, have for years tried to divide Iranian people and create atmosphere of distrust in the establishment and spend millions of dollars to launch adverse publicity against the principle and foundations of the revolution. They launch thousands of media, sites and networks to gain such wrong, irrational and inhumane goals; however, people annually have integrated presence annually, thwarting conspiracies and making the expenses vain.
