MEK Iran: Court Documents Expose the Purpose of Tehran’s Failed Bomb Attempt

Report from Times UK

Arefani was in constant communication with Assadi and was kept on his toes recording footage and taking photos of (PMOI / MEK Iran) activists and passing them to Assadi.

An unusual event has just taken place in Europe, where one of the Iranian regime’s diplomats is facing a trial in a Belgian court, accused of the failed bombing against the yearly rally of the Iranian Resistance, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), and the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI). The bombing would have taken place at Villepinte just outside Paris in June 2018.

Belgian prosecutors have asked that Assadollah Assadi, the Iranian diplomat, be sentenced to a 20-year prison sentence, while two of his partners in crime should be imprisoned for 18 years. These were a couple, Amir Sadouni and Nassimeh Na’ami. For the 4th terrorist, Mehrdad Arefani, the request was 15 years in prison.

The prosecutor has also demanded that the Belgian citizenship status of Sadouni, Na’ami, and Arefani should be revoked. One of the worst aspects of the foiled terrorist attack is that Assadi’s accomplices used their privileged Belgian nationality to enable them to organize and try to carry out the evil deed.

The prosecutor has requested that any cash given to the terrorists by the Iranian regime’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS), will now be confiscated. These terrorists, Sadouni and Na’ami, were actually receiving welfare from the Belgian government and owned 2 vehicles and rented two apartments as well. In Na’ami’s bank account there were 120,000 euros and 35,000 euros in cash were discovered in her home.

The prosecutor reminded the court that Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), was the key target and was the keynote speaker at the Free Iran rally event.

Assadi personally delivered the bomb to Sadouni and Na’ami in Luxembourg and told them to place it as close to where Maryam Rajavi was sitting as they could. If they were unable to do that, they were told to abort the bombing.

The prosecutor explained to the court that all the evidence pointed to Assadi commanding the terrorist operation and prosecuting him was essential for the country’s own security.

The prosecutor pointed out that because the arrest of Assadi took place in Germany and not Austria, where Assadi’s diplomatic mission and place of appointment was, he did not have diplomatic immunity.

The prosecutor told the court that because the Iranian regime had tried to stop Assadi’s appearance in court and answer questions, this shows without a doubt that the regime orchestrated the terrorist attack. Because Assadi was working with the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) it is quite clear that it wasn’t an aborted terrorist attack where Assadi was the sole perpetrator.

The prosecutor described how Assadi carried the bomb which was packed professionally and was to be detonated remotely.

According to the prosecutor, Sadouni and Na’ami had a long association with the MOIS. They had also been in receipt of payments from the MOIS every year, allegedly up to 66,000 euros.  It was in 2009 and 2010 that the couple made contact with MOIS operatives “Ahmadzadeh” and “Javad.”

The couple started talking to Assadi in 2015 right through to when they were arrested in July 2018. They not only visited Iran on many occasions, but visited Germany, Italy, and Austria, where they arranged to meet Assadi and were paid for exchanging information.

One of the couple’s jobs was to report on locations and sources of income sources of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran) members. Just before the foiled bombing plot date, Na’ami was given 35,000 euros in cash from Assadi and hid it at home.

The prosecutor stated that Na’ami was told how to use the bomb and that it would be charged for 8 hours and the detonator was linked by a wire to a battery. Sadouni and Na’ami were instructed to stay at least 300-meters from where the planted bomb was placed.

The final meeting between Assadi and the couple was on June 28th at a Luxembourg pizza establishment. This is where Na’ami was given the bomb, a new SIM card, and 180,000 euros, plus written instructions concerning the bomb’s use. On June 26th, 19,000 euros were sent to the couple’s account to cover a deposit for a 54,000-euro Mercedes Benz vehicle.

Arefani was in constant communication with Assadi and was kept on his toes recording footage and taking photos of MEK activists and passing them to Assadi. He also kept an eye on Na’ami and Sadouni to ensure they were doing as instructed. He was at the venue which was targeted and Assadi was waiting for him to file a report on the bombing.
