MEK Iran: Iranian Opposition Demands Action After Assadi Trial
The trial of an Iranian diplomat, Assadollah Assadi, and his three accomplices in Antwerp, Belgium, should have been accompanied by outrage from European authorities. After all, the plot to blow up the Free Iran rally held by the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), and the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) at Villepinte, a Paris suburb, could have killed many hundreds of people if it hadn’t been foiled by European police and anti-terrorist operatives. It could have been the worst terrorist attack in the history of the post-second world war in Europe.

The real target of the planned attack was the keynote speaker, and National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) president-elect, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, as well as many opposition supporters and members as possible. The attack could also have killed foreign dignitaries like U.S. President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, other U.S., European, and world leaders and politicians.
The real target may have been the NCRI and its constituent groups, especially the Mujahedin-e Khalk (PMOI / MEK Iran), but the real culprits are not on trial in Antwerp. The people who organized and ordered the bomb attack include Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, President Hassan Rouhani, Foreign Minister Mohammad-Javad Zarif, and Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alavi. These people, despite their denials, must have known about and approved of the attack.
If the planned attack could have been so deadly, why is the international community so muted about the trial of the people who were given the job of carrying it out?
Iranian opposition supporters took to Twitter to brew up a storm on social media after the first day of the trial, demanding to know why international authorities aren’t taking the Iranian terror threat seriously and why they are burying their heads in the sand about the influence of the Iranian regime.
Opposition Twitter users demanded that the E.U.:
- Took action to stop the regime from committing any more crimes against its own people;
- Shut down embassies which are used as bases for terrorist activities and expel diplomats who are often, like Assadi, doubling as spies and instigators of terror in Europe and beyond.
The Iranian opposition and its lawyers have presented clear evidence at the trial that the regime in Iran is completely complicit in the bomb attack. This wasn’t an isolated incident, according to the MEK. The regime had “given orders to its terrorist diplomat to bomb the rally to pieces,” according to Dowlat Nowrouzi, the representative of the MEK’s parent organization, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) in the United Kingdom. Nowrouzi explained that the regime wants to eliminate the threat of being overthrown by the growing popularity of the MEK within Iran.
The regime's decision to bomb the NCRI's Free Iran gathering in Paris in June 2018 put at risk the lives of British MPs & 100s of members of the Anglo-Iranian community. @FCDOGovUK must hold regime to account for #terrorism & #ShutDownIranTerrorEmbassies https://t.co/YNAJBtBgP4
