On Thursday, February 29, 2024, Maryam Rajavi welcomed Professor Alejo Vidal Quadras, President of the International Committee In Search of Justice and former Vice President of the European Parliament, on his first trip to Paris after surviving the Iranian regime’s terrorist attempt on his life in Madrid.
For 43 years, the people and the Resistance of Iran have not recognized the slightest legitimacy in the regime's sham election,
Maryam Rajavi was born into a middle-class family in Tehran. One of her brothers, Mahmoud, is a veteran member of the PMOI/MEK and was a political prisoner during the Shah’s regime.
Her older sister, Narges, was killed by the Shah’s secret police, SAVAK, in 1975.
Her other sister, Massoumeh, an industrial engineering student, was arrested by the clerical regime in 1982. Pregnant at the time, she was ultimately hanged after undergoing brutal torture. Massoumeh’s husband, Massoud Izadkhah, was also executed.
