Names of 25 more killed in nationwide uprising released
Maryam Rajavi: It is imperative to dispatch international delegations to ascertain the scope of crime against humanity and to visit the detainees
The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) published the names of another 25 martyrs of the Iranian people’s nationwide uprising that engulfed 182 cities. The Secretariat of the National Council of Resistance of Iran published a statement, in which it wrote, “Previously, 154 names had been released. As such, the number of martyrs whose names have been made public stands at 179.”
“The clerical regime’s new atrocity comes to light despite the fact that the mullahs are trying their utmost to conceal the actual number of those killed and the shocking scope of its crimes. This explains why the Internet was shut down, the bodies of those killed were not handed over to their families, and funeral for the victims were banned. With each passing day, more details about the regime’s crimes are revealed,” the statement added.
The international community needs to undertake urgent measures to stop the slaughter and suppression. I urge the United Nations to immediately dispatch fact-finding missions to Iran to ascertain the scope of crime against humanity perpetrated by the regime and to visit those detained. The leaders of the mullahs’ regime must face justice for committing crimes against humanity. Silence and inaction not only violate human rights principles but also embolden the ruling theocracy to continue its crimes and expand them to the region as a whole.
