Iran and South Africa on Justice
Ebrahim Raisi, Deputy Judiciary Chief of Iran
Ebrahim Raisi, Deputy Judiciary Chief of Iran and a prominent member of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s judiciary system recently paid a visit to South Africa to strengthen relations between the two countries.
At a press briefing held in Pretoria, he praised the people of South Africa for overcoming the oppression and injustice of apartheid and saying that they should be mindful of the new forms of slavery in the world today.
Creating greater awareness of the Islamic Republic of Iran and its people, communication is important said Raisi. Finding commonality through cultural and other people to people exchanges is vital in the protection and promotion of human rights, he said.
He was in South Africa to share knowledge and ideas of the respective judicial systems of the countries as a specialist in justice systems. He is also a lecturer at the University of Tehran.
