TEHRAN (Iran News) – In a virtual meeting with judicial officials from around the country, Judiciary Chief Hojjatoleslam Seyed Ebrahim Raisi said that the duty of the judiciary is to support production and more than 2,000 production units have been activated by Judiciary efforts.
He referred to the motto of the year “Production, Support and Elimination of Obstacles” by the Leader of the Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, and said: “When the Leader announces a slogan all institutions must work to achieve this, the judiciary must be involved in any area where it is possible to remove barriers to production and support production.”
“Our colleagues activated more than two thousand production units, which deserves appreciation and thanks,” he said.
Raisi said that the duty of the judiciary is to support production and remove its obstacles.
“Last year, my colleagues tried to save more than a thousand production units from closure,” said the chief of the judiciary.
He noted: “We are confident that with the efforts of our colleagues, the support of production and the fight against corruption to support production will come to an end.”
Raisi stated: “One of the important areas of production in the judiciary is fighting corruption; because economic corruption hinders production prosperity, and if there are bribery and special privileges somewhere, the prosperity of production will not take place.”
Emphasizing that economic security must be created for production prosperity, Raisi added: “Economic security depends on the fight against economic corruption. One of the important obstacles to production is the smuggling of the goods, and it is our duty to fight it.”
Touching upon the talks on the JCPOA, he that Iran will not reverse its remedial measures on the nuclear deal until the US removal of all sanctions and verification of its measures by Tehran.
“Today, the clear policy and strategy of the Islamic Republic towards the U.S. is that it should lift all sanctions and we should verify them and then return to the nuclear deal undertakings,” Raisi said.
“Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution (Ayatollah Khamenei) did not declare this strategy in a closed-door room but in the presence of all people of Iran, and no other strategy is acceptable,” he added.
Raisi referred to certain analyses which say that the new U.S. administration is different from the Trump government, and said the Americans have always been after implementing arrogant plots against the Iranian nation and if they claim that they have changed this policy, they should prove it in practice.
