US must be prosecuted at intl. courts for human rights abuses: Iranís Judiciary chief

Amid a global outcry over the brutal death of a black man at the hands of US police, Iranís Judiciary Chief Ebrahim Raeisi says the United States must face prosecution at international courts for "systematic racism" and violations of basic human rights.

In remarks on Tuesday, Raeisi slammed the shocking US police brutality that led to the death of George Floyd earlier this month, saying the tragedy "laid bare America unmasked."

The 46-year-old unarmed black man lost his life in police custody on a Minnesota street after a white officer kneeled on his neck for nearly 9 minutes.

Raeisi further said the US, which claims to be a defender of human rights "should in fact be prosecuted at international courts" as a violator of basic human rights and for racial discrimination.

"Itís not just about the color of skin; itís about systematic racism in the US," said Raeisi.

He also criticized the so-called human rights advocates for keeping silent on Washingtonís abuses of even the most basic human rights, calling on the international community to take action against such arrogant policies.

The latest instance of US police violence has triggered angry protests both inside the US and abroad.

The rallies in American cities have been met with an iron fist, with police firing teargas canisters and rubber bullets to break up the gatherings.

Minnesota, where the murder took place, has even activated the National Guard against the protesters in a rare move.

Shootings and killings of unarmed black people at the hands of white police officers have on several occasions prompted mass protests across the country in recent years.

Such police conduct led to the formation in 2013 of the Black Lives Matter movement, which campaigns against violence and systemic racism towards black people.
