Iranian government spokesman: Sharif University instructors can raise charges against US

 
Tehran, Aug 14, IRNA-Government spokesman, Gholam-Hossein Elham, said here Monday that the instructors of Sharif Technical University can raise charges against US and claim for damage.
 
He made the remark at this week's briefing session in response to a question about finger printing of instructors of Sharif Technical University in the US.
 
"The move is part of the US administrators' unjustifiable, unethical and non-political approach, which prove that they are not committed to anything.
 
"They are still unable to identify a university instructor from a terrorist," he added.
 
Elham said that if the American officials approach scientific figures in such a way and have such an attitude towards science, it is a pity and great loss to the humanity.
 
The government spokesman said that even in the Medieval Ages such reactionary approaches were not observed.
 
"Such an approach once more reveals the US hegemonic nature, which takes thinkers for terrorists," he added.
 
The official said that Iranian courts are legally prepared to process a complaint against the US government, adding that university instructors have the right to raise their claims at domestic courts and claim for damage.
 
He added that the relevant courts will go through their file and issue just rulings against such inhuman approaches.
