Int’l lawyer underlines US role in Iran recent unrests

Tehran, Jan 3, IRNA - A prominent law expert from Geneva's Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies highlighted the role of US in recent riots happening in Iranian cities.

“Today, there are US-based TV and podcast channels that are openly instructing Iranians to make Molotov cocktails, set Iran's mosques, stadiums, government buildings and police cars on fire and commit other acts of violence,” Reza Nasri said in a Twitter message released recently, commenting on recent unrests in Iran and the role of certain Western powers in them.

“Some of these US-based individuals and groups have even taken credit for past acts of violence and vandalism committed inside Iran,” he added in a separate message.

Criticizing US dual policies, he said if the US views these extraterritorial incitements to violence as being punishable by drone strike, why isn't it - at least - making any attempt to stop these individuals? Shouldn't they be investigated and criminally charged for acts that are in fact illegal under US law?

A number of cities in Iran have become scenes of protests over the past days. Influenced by the foreign enemies of the Islamic Republic, the protests have sometimes turned violent.
