Islamic Republic of Iran: Taking The Piss

Good try, but I don’t think this will work, lads:

FM spokesman denounces harsh attitude of French police
Tehran, Jan 4, IRNA –

Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mihman-Parast on Monday denounced the harsh attitude of French police and security forces towards people in that country.

Such an attitude is against human rights norms, he said, adding that behavior of the French police is a clear indication of violation of civil, political, social, economic, and cultural rights of the French people.

Their attitude is also against international commitments of France as a member of international human rights conventions, Mihman-Parast noted.

The recent unrest in various French cities is an indication of the lack of justice and equality throughout this country, he said, adding that such an approach is rooted in incorrect policies of the French statesmen.

Referring to a human tragedy in France in 2009, he regretted that 353 homeless people died last year in a country which is the so-called advocate of equality and democracy in the world.

Mihman-Parast further voiced Tehran’s great concern over the performance of the French government and called for serious change in the attitude of the country’s statesmen.

He also urged the international bodies to investigate such unfair approach in France.

I expect that Ramin Mihman-Parast will be applying for political asylum in France before the end of this year.

Let’s hope he doesn’t get it.
