The Human Rights Center of Iranian University Students plans to indict the US at the Hague for its numerous cases of interference in Iran’s internal affairs, imposing unilateral sanctions and assassinating the country’s nuclear scientists.
In a press conference in Tehran on Sunday, the Human Rights Center displayed a letter of complaint against the US government that has been prepared in the Persian, English and Arabic languages and is ready to be sent to the International Court of Justice in the Hague.
The letter of complaint covers different areas such as US interference in Iran’s internal affairs, its support for the former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war, downing of Iranian passenger plane in late 1980s, assassination of nuclear scientists and imposition of unilateral sanctions.
“The US government due to its imperialistic nature and domineering role has always been looking for interfering in the (internal) affairs of the world’s independent countries and it continues to do so,” parts of the letter said.
It noted that Iran due to its geopolitical location has been under the US attacks, specially after the 1953 military coup in the country which was orchestrated by Washington and London.
The 1953 Iranian coup d’état, known in Iran as the 28 Mordad coup, was the overthrow of the democratically elected government of Prime Minister Dr. Mohammad Mosaddegh on 19 August 1953, orchestrated by the United Kingdom (under the name ‘Operation Boot’) and the United States (under the name TPAJAX Project).
