Iran’s HR Council Rebukes Attacks on Expatriate Voters in UK, Australia, New Zealand
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian High Council of Human Rights (HCHR) condemned recent assaults by counterrevolutionary elements on Iranian voters in Britain, Australia and New Zealand.
“Today, Iranian nationals in the UK, Australia, and New Zealand, who went to the polling stations to determine their own destiny, were assaulted despite police presence,” HCHR wrote on its Twitter account.
“These countries and Canada, which deprived half a million Iranians of voting in elections, are all being led by Royal office,” it added.
Counterrevolutionary elements attacked an Iranian woman who was participating at the polling station to cast her vote. The attack injured her head.
Iran’s Chargé d'affaires in London Mehdi Hosseini said the attack on an Iranian lady in Birmingham will be pursued.
“False claimants of democracy, with affiliation to terrorists and foreigners, brutally injured a respectable woman who just wanted to vote,” Hosseini tweeted, assuring that the case will be pursued by Iran’s mission in the UK.
