NCRI News Conference in Brussels, exposing new details of recent foiled terror plot to bomb FreeIran Rally

Today in News Conference in Brussels- the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) revealed the findings of its investigation into the structure of the Iranian regime’s Intelligence Ministry in Europe and the key commanders of the plot to bomb the #FreeIran2018 convention in Paris.

A group of prominent Belgian and European attorneys held a press conference on Wednesday, August 8th in Brussels, Belgium to release new information about the foiled terrorist plot by the Iranian regime to bomb MEK‘s annual gathering in Paris in June of this year and the response by the international community. The press conference included the news that dignitaries from Europe and the Middle East have requested to enter the court case against the diplomat-terrorists as private plaintiffs and to file their complaint against the Iranian regime.

A number of elected officials and other dignitaries from the European Union have asked to be named as private plaintiffs in the case. Belgian attorney Mr. Rik Vanreusel represents many of the proposed plaintiffs and spoke on their behalf at the press conference.

Sid Ahmed Ghozali, former Prime Minister of Algeria, was also present at the press conference and is asking to be named as a plaintiff. He was one of the speakers at the Free Iran Rally that was targeted by the diplomat-terrorists, “along with hundreds of personalities who were the potential victims of this foiled attack,” he said in a tweet.

Belgian MP Serge de Patou emphasized that the Iranian opposition was the primary target of the terrorist attack. Renowned French human rights lawyer William Bourdon confirmed the arrest of Iranian regime diplomat Assadollah Assadi for his role in the foiled terrorist attack.

Mohammad Mohaddessin, Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the NCRI, described the events leading to the foiled terrorist attack on the NCRI’s annual gathering in Villepinte, France and the subsequent arrest of Assadollah Assadi and his associates. Mr. Mohaddessin obtained new information from the MEK’s network inside Iran that sheds light on the decision making behind the terrorist plot.

Assadi was the “third counselor” of the Iranian embassy in Vienna and the head of the Iranian regime’s Ministry of Intelligence station there. He was arrested in Germany on July 1st on a European warrant.

Assadi headed this MOIS (Ministry of Intelligence and Security) station since 2014, and for several years, this station has coordinated the activities of all other MOIS stations in Europe.

Mohaddessin stated that Assadi was previously stationed as the third secretary of the Iranian embassy in Baghdad after the American invasion in 2004. Assadi used his position to gather intelligence and work against the MEK members living in Camp Ashraf at the time.

Mohaddessin went on to say that Assadi planned his 2018 attack for months and met with his team several times to prepare them. He reported his work to Amiri-Moghadam.

Mohaddessin reiterated the prosecutor’s statement that Assadi had personally handed over a bomb to the terrorist couple who was arrested in Luxembourg.

Belgian authorities arrested a Belgian-Iranian couple on June 30th with 500-grams of high-explosive TATP and a detonator near Brussels. The couple was on their way to the NCRI’s Free Iran convention in Villepinte, France with the intent to detonate the device. The couple pretended to be members of the MEK, who had a large number of supporters at the convention. Tens of thousands of people were in attendance at the annual event, including dignitaries from the United States, Europe, and the Middle East.
