Iran may allocate $20 mn to probe US abuses
Tehran: Iranian state radio says Parliament plans to debate a bill to allocate USD 20 million to investigate alleged US human rights abuses against prison detainees.
The decision is seen as a reaction to US criticism of Iran`s violent crackdown against protesters following the disputed June Presidential Election.
Today`s radio report says if the measure is approved, a committee made up of representatives from several ministries would investigate alleged "human rights violations and torture in US prisons as well as its secret prisons in Europe" where Washington held suspected terrorists.
The proposed bill comes at a time when Iran`s leaders are fending off allegations that detained protesters were abused and tortured to death.
