Supreme Leader Urges Plans on Crime Prevention in Iran
Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei called on the Iranian organizations, the Judiciary in particular, to devise plans for crime prevention.
Crime prevention is one of the major and sensitive responsibilities of the Judiciary, Ayatollah Khamenei said in a meeting with the Judiciary chief and authorities, held in Tehran on Sunday evening.
The Leader also called for an “organized effort” by all responsible organizations to prevent crime in the country, noting that without such plans, “crimes continue to increase and escalate and the macromanagement of them will not be possible.”
Ayatollah Khamenei further highlighted the significance of an “independent” Judiciary system that would not come under the influence of others.
One of the main factors of the Judiciary’s independence is “might”, the Leader explained. The “rule of law” and “absolute health” were the other elements behind the Judiciary’s independence the Leader highlighted.
“Any corruption in the Judiciary system will pave the way for bigger corruptions in the society,” Imam Khamenei warned.
The meeting was held on the occasion of the Judiciary Day (the 7th day of the Iranian month of Tir), commemorating Ayatollah Mohammad Beheshti and scores of other senior Iranian officials martyred in a terrorist attack back in 1981.
On June 28, 1981, members of the terrorist Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) blew up the headquarters of the Islamic Republic Party in Tehran, killing 72 ranking officials, including Ayatollah Beheshti, the first head of the Supreme Judicial Council of Iran after victory of the Islamic Revolution.
