Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani has said it is not fair to say that all judges are corrupt. Larijani made the remarks on Wednesday in response to an MP, who recently said that all judges receive bribes.
"We do not deny the existence of corruption" because humans
are fallible, but it is not fair to say all judges are corrupt and that lawmaker
should present his evidence to prove his claims, he added.
Response to remarks
Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati, the Guardian Council secretary, recently said the Judiciary does not cooperate with the police in many cases.

Ayatollah Larijani said that a police officer is not a judge
and making judgments has always been the responsibility of the Judiciary.
It is unfortunate that some of the country's high-ranking officials express their views based on what they read in newspapers, he added.
"We know that there are some problems in the judicial system, but the Judiciary and the administration should not be undermined," he stated.
The Judiciary chief also said all sex offenders and armed robbers should be aware that their crimes will be considered moharebeh (enmity against God) and within one month, their dossiers will be examined and they will undoubtedly be hung.
