Speaking at the 46th anniversary of the independence of Iran Bar Association on Tuesday, he said: “Lawyer is a sacred name and a name of God”.

He continued: “Lawyers being present in the legal proceeding improves people’s trust in court decisions”.

The President of the Islamic Republic of Iran also said: “Being a lawyer means defending people’s rights and safeguarding the right”.

Judicial security results in social security by lawyers’ work, said Rouhani adding: “Lawyers being present in the legal proceeding improves people’s trust in court decisions”.

He also said: “Feeling of legal security in the society is sometimes more effective than the legal security itself”.

Dr Rouhani added: “Lawyers’ explanation accompanying court decision increases the credit of the judicial system”.

“In the eleventh government, we defended the rights of the people in the global stage by relying on experts,” continued the President.

Rouhani went on to refer to Dr Mosaddegh’s efforts in defending people’s rights, he said: “Mosaddegh defended people’s rights in oil nationalisation; after the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) we are exporting oil two times more”.

Reclaiming the Iranian nation’s share of the oil market was defending people’s rights, said the President adding: “The oil diplomacy made all oil producers decrease their production, except for the Islamic Republic of Iran”.

He continued: “The power of choice in economic relations and reclaiming the Iranian nation’s money, which was limited because of the sanctions, are the positive effects of JCPOA”.

Stating that we need distinguished lawyers to defend people’s rights and make social security realised, he said: “Public conscience must judge well about our performance”.

Social asset is achieved when people feed the justice, continued the President adding: “We need powerful legal institutes”.

The aim of the Charter for Citizens’ Rights is to help people know their rights, Dr Rouhani said. He added: Based on the sharia and Imam Khomeini’s (RA) eight-point decree, one is not allowed to scrutinise and interfere in people’s lives”.
