MARYAM RAJAVI: IRANIAN REGIME’S LEADERS MUST BE PROSECUTED FOR THE 1988 MASSACRE

-

There are growing calls for the Iranian Regime to be prosecuted for the crimes against humanity they continue to commit to this day.

London, 6 September – Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the Iranian Resistance, made the speech at a seminar for Iranian Communities in Europe on September 3.

She said: “Standing up to the violations of human rights in Iran is also the responsibility of Western governments because the consequences of this regime are not confined to Iran. The terrorism and fundamentalism emanating from Tehran have victimized defenceless people in Nice, Paris, Brussels, etc. Make your relations with the Iranian regime contingent on an end to executions in Iran. Put Khamenei and his accomplices on trial in an international court for crimes against humanity, specifically in 1988. And respect the Iranian people’s Resistance for regime change.”

The Iranian government has faced a large backlash in recent weeks, especially since the leak of audio footage when senior Iranian leaders admitted their roles in the 1988 massacre.

Rajavi said: “In recent weeks, a powerful social wave has arisen against the Velayat-e Faqih regime; at its core, the 1988 massacre of 30,000 political prisoners. In fact, this atrocity has become a central grievance in the Iranian people’s protests against the criminal and murderous regime, and a pivotal issue of their demand for the establishment of freedom.”

She urged the Iranian people to keep fighting so that the 30,000 martyrs would not have died in vain.

Rajavi said: “I call on my fellow countrymen and women to rise up in support and solidarity to expand the movement to obtain justice… Khomeini and his accomplices wanted to do away with the notion of resistance for freedom, so not only did they exterminate vast numbers of Mojahedin and other resistant prisoners, but they also concealed all the evidence of this atrocity and denied it all together. They have not yet revealed any information on the locations of these victims’ graves. Khavaran cemetery, discovered through the efforts of families of the victims, is today a sacred memorial to those who gave their lives for freedom.”
