MEK: Iran’s Diplomat Terrorist was Acting on Regime’s Behalf when he Attempted to Bomb Opposition Rally in Paris
Belgian authorities said that Iranian diplomat terrorist Assadollah Assadi was acting upon orders from the Iranian regime when he attempted to blow up the National Council of Resistance of Iran’s (NCRI) and the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), 2018 Free Iran gathering in Paris, which amounts to state-sponsored terrorism.
An October 10 report from Le Monde read: “On February 20, Jaak Raas, head of the [Belgium] intelligence service, wrote to the federal prosecutor at the time that ‘the proposed attack was conceived in the name of Iran, and under its leadership; it was not a personal initiative by Assadi’.”
This is obvious because Assadi is a high-ranking Iranian official, previously serving as a diplomat in Iraq and, at the time of his arrest, third secretary at the Iranian embassy in Vienna, so he would not make these decisions off his own back. He was acting on behalf of Department 312 of the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS), which is classified as a terrorist organization by the European Union.
Assadi was arrested in Germany on July 1, 2018, as he attempted to return to Vienna, where he had diplomatic immunity, after handing off the 500 grams of TATP explosives in Luxembourg to the terrorists he hired – Nasimeh Naami and Amir Sadouni. (Naami, Sadouni, and another terrorist had already been arrested by this point.)

The plan was to bomb the Iranian Resistance, NCRI, and MEK gathering, which was attended by over 100,000 people, including hundreds of politicians, to kill, maim, and terrorize as many people as possible because the regime was angry that the opposition group, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), was successfully moved to safety in Albania following an international campaign.
Le Monde wrote: “Belgian experts are categorical: the shock wave caused by the bomb could have extended over a hundred meters, claiming numerous victims and creating a potentially fatal panic movement given the number of people present.”
It has been reported that Assad threatened Belgian authorities and witnesses with terrorist attacks if the court case did not see him set free, but he will find that Belgium does not give in to this.
“Assadi's incarceration entered its third year,” lamented #Iran’s state-run Keyhan newspaper on Wednesday, referring to the regime’s terrorist diplomat Assadollah Assadi, who was arrested in Germany on June 30, 2018.https://t.co/CVxohgUdfk

The Iranian Resistance wrote: “The European Union must strongly condemn the clerical regime’s terrorist threats, which are designed to obstruct the judicial process in Belgium. Silence and appeasement will further embolden this regime to carry out assassinations, commit crimes, and engage in blackmail. Experience has shown that the only effective policy to counter the unbridled terrorism of the ruling mullahs in Iran is to adopt a decisive approach.
The closure of embassies and the trial and expulsion of mercenaries and intelligence agents of this regime, operating under any cover, is the first necessary action to counter the mullahs’ terrorism. The use of terrorism to obstruct the judicial process increases the need to expel the regime’s representatives and close its embassies and missions.”
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), testified for seven hours while presenting documents which made it clear that this major terrorist operation was decided during a session of the regime’s Supreme National Security Council headed by Hassan Rouhani and approved with the direct order of the regime’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.
The Iranian regime’s extensive two-year efforts to help its arrested diplomat in Belgium have so far proven futile, and the first public trial for Assadi will soon be convened. #Iran #ExpelIranDiplomatTerrorists pic.twitter.com/Us5O1adofF
