In a statement entitled “Mrs. Rajavi urges the Security Council to act to stop increasing rights abuses and continuous crimes against humanity by mullahs’ regime”, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) reflected Mrs. Rajavi’s remarks in this regard. The statement reads:

“Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), welcomed the United Nations General Assembly’s adoption of a resolution censuring the flagrant and systematic human rights violations in Iran.

She said: After 66 UN condemnation, the world community must take effective measures to stop the escalating trend of human rights abuses and the continuous crimes against humanity by the clerical regime.”

Mrs. Rajavi twitted:

“UN adopts 66th resolution censuring human rights abuses in Iran the Security Council has to act to stop increasing rights abuses and continuous crimes against humanity by mullahs’ regime.”

The President-elect of the NCRI emphasized that those responsible for the heinous atrocities in November, the regime’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei, its president Hassan Rouhani, and other regime leaders, have been involved in the ruling theocracy’s crimes, including the massacre of 1988 in which 30,000 political prisoners mainly the MEK Iran members and supporters. Their impunity must end. The Security Council must qualify the regime’s crimes, including the 1988 and the 2019 massacres, as crimes against humanity so that those responsible are brought to justice.

Mrs. Rajavi also wrote on Twitter:

“The United Nations Security Council must declare the November massacre, one of the most horrific crimes of the 21st century, as a crime against humanity so that the regime’s leaders are brought to justice.”
