Maryam Rajavi urged UN Security Council to prosecute perpetrators of 1988 massacre and those in charge of four decades of crimes in Iran
The mullahs’ spies and mercenaries must be expelled and the world community must stand by the people of Iran in their uprising for freedom
“For three decades, the international community has been silent over the massacre of political prisoners in Iran. As a result, the mullahs have continued with impunity to violate human rights in Iran, crack down on public protests, launch terrorist operations, and wage catastrophic wars in the Middle East and other countries. Now, the time has come to end this silence.”
These were part of the remarks made by Maryam Rajavi, to a conference marking the 30th anniversary of the 30,000 political prisoners massacred in Iran, simultaneously held in 20 major capitals, on Saturday, August 25, 2018.
Maryam Rajavi urged the UN Security Council to prepare for the prosecution of the clerical regime’s leaders, those responsible for the 1988 massacre, and the officials in charge of four decades of crimes against humanity in Iran.
She reiterated that the regime’s spies and mercenaries must be expelled from western countries, and all relations must be terminated with the Iranian regime which takes advantage of diplomatic resources to promote state-sponsored terrorism. She stressed that the regime’s embassies must be shut down.
Maryam Rajavi added, “The time has come for the world community to stand by the people of Iran in their uprising against the religious fascist regime ruling Iran and recognize their determination for regime change.”
The meetings sponsored by Iranian communities in 20 major capitals in France, Germany, Britain, the Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Switzerland, Italy, Belgium, Austria, Romania and Canada, joined together in a video conference.
A number of political dignitaries, lawmakers, elected representatives, jurists, and high ranking religious personalities, as well as members and representatives of the Iranian communities in Europe and Canada attended and addressed the conference. A number of witnesses to the 1988 massacre, families of the massacred prisoners, and former political prisoners also testified in this conference to the inhuman crimes of the Iranian regime.
The political dignitaries, representatives of Iranian communities, witnesses to the 1988 massacre who spoke to the global video conference urged the International Community to support the Iranian people’s uprising for regime change and freedom, and adopt a decisive policy against the theocratic regime ruling Iran.
They also called for condemnation of the Iranian regime’s human rights abuses and terrorism, and prosecution of the masterminds and perpetrators of the 1988 massacre who are presently among the highest officials of the clerical regime and directly involved in the suppression of the ongoing anti-government protests in Iran.
