Azerbaijan, Baku Aug. 27 / Trend, N. Umid /

UN Human Rights Reporter on Iran, Ahmed Shaheed acts like an actor, not a reporter, as can be seen in his interviews and "shows", head of the Iranian Judiciary's Council for Human Rights, Mohammad Javad Ardashir Larijani said, Mehr news agency reported.

Iran always welcomes reporters but Shaheed is not interested in reporting, Larijani said, adding that, he acts like an investigator.

He also went on to note that, Shaheed is not serious in regards to visiting Iran, despite the fact that he has repeatedly announced plans to do so.

Shaheed always makes false allegations, Larijani added.

It should be recalled that Larijani had addressed similar statements to Ahmed Shaheed, early in March.

Speaking in an interview with an Iranian television channel, Larijani noted that Shaheed's latest report was ordered and arranged in accordance with U.S. foreign policy.
