MEK Iran: EU Should Cancel Iranian Foreign Minister’s Visit to Europe in the Wake of Navid Afkari’s Execution
Iranian wrestling champion, Navid Afkari, has finally been executed after an international campaign to stop this atrocity. Afkari was arrested after the protests in Iran in 2018 and tortured in an attempt to procure a false confession. The real reason for this intimidation and repression, as it was for recently executed Mostafa Salehi, is to frighten the Iranian people into submission.

The Iranian foreign minister, Javad Zarif, is scheduled to visit Europe soon. The EU should condemn the execution of Navid Afkari and cancel Zarif’s visit. Anything else is an acceptance of Iran’s murderous record on human rights.
The president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, had this to say after news of Afkari’s execution: “The people of Iran, especially the courageous youth, will not remain silent vis-à-vis the savage execution of this brave son of Shiraz and will rise up in solidarity with the heroic people of Fars Province over his unjust execution. The religious dictatorship ruling Iran cannot survive for even one day without suppression, execution, and torture.
By shedding the blood of the brave children of Iran, such as Navid, it seeks to preserve its rule in the face of the Iranian people’s uprising. But Navid’s martyrdom will only add fuel to the flames of the Iranian people’s uprising and will strengthen their determination to overthrow the clerical regime and to establish freedom and democracy.”

Iran’s people will condemn Navid Afkari’s Execution
The execution of Navid Afkari is just one more atrocity the regime has committed in a long line of atrocities against its own people in the last 40 years. Unfortunately, the refusal to condemn the regime’s actions by international authorities has led the regime to think it can get away with whatever it wants to do without repercussions.
“The United Nations Security Council, its member states, the UN Human Rights Council and High Commissioner for Human Rights, the EU, and all international human rights organizations must undertake effective and concrete measures against the Iranian regime for the execution of Navid Afkari and 120,000 political prisoners,” said Mrs. Rajavi.
The first step the EU can take is to cancel Javad Zarif’s trip to Europe and condemn the recent executions of political prisoners in Iran. Zarif is the person who incredibly recently boasted that Iran was the “greatest democracy in the Middle East.”
