Iran Urges World’s Law-Practitioners to Join Movement against Racist Terrorism

Head of Iran's Judiciary Ayatollah Seyed Ebrahim Rayeesi, in a meeting with judicial officials of the country, invited lawyers, judges, and legal experts from around the world to join a united legal movement against terrorism and racism.

Rayeesi, in the Monday meeting with Iranian judicial officials, called on legal experts and judges in the world to come together around Iran’s legal system to form a united legal movement against terrorism and racism.

Rayeesi’s call for a global action against racism and terrorism came a few days after a white supremacist attacked two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch on Friday, killing 50 innocent Muslims and injuring dozens more, some of whom are in critical condition.

The Australian gunman behind the massacre, identified as Brenton Tarrant, broadcast live footage on Facebook of the attack on one mosque in the city of Christchurch, mirroring the carnage played out in video games, after publishing a “manifesto” in which he denounced immigrants, calling them “invaders”.

In his manifesto, Tarrant said he saw US President Donald Trump as “symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose.”
