MEK Iran: Assadi Trial Should Result in Resolute Action By EU Against Mullah’s Regime
On February 4th, a Belgium court should be arriving at a verdict about Iran’s imprisoned diplomat-terrorist, Assadollah Assadi, who made every effort to position a bomb at the opposition, the National Council of Resistance of Iran’s (NCRI), and the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran) rally in 2018 in France in order to kill participants.
Statement by former European Ministers
A statement released by twenty former European Ministers in relation to this event was aimed at encouraging Europe to issue a firm stance against terrorist activities organized by the Iranian regime.
Those who signed the statement are trying to put pressure on the following representatives:
- the President of the European Commission;
- the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy;
- the European Parliament president;
- the leaders of EU member states.
Javad Zarif must be held accountable
They want them to take real actions against the Iranian regime’s terrorist activities. They particularly demand that Javad Zarif be held accountable for his diplomat’s obvious role in organizing the thwarted blowing up a peaceful rally in Villepinte, France.
Those who signed the statement also want countries to carefully scrutinize the activities going on in Iranian embassies and any cultural and religious centers in the countries where Iranians have been posted in diplomatic roles. The regime has for a long time used its overseas diplomatic premises to organize its terrorist activities outside of Iran.
Mullah regime uses diplomatic premises for terrorist activities
These terrorist activities can be traced back to 1990 when the regime’s diplomat-terrorist shot at Professor Kazem Rajavi in Switzerland, where he was acting in a role as the Iranian Resistance’s representative.
Several years later in June 2018, the regime appointed another diplomat terrorist, Assadollah Assadi, to organize the bombing of the Iranian Resistance’s gathering right in the center of Europe. If the bomb plot hadn’t been intercepted, it would be meant thousands of supporters of the Iranian opposition, and hundreds of European personalities and citizens may have lost their lives.
Mullah regime’s terrorist activities are not limited
The regime’s terrorist activities are not limited to just the Paris bomb plot. In fact, right at this moment, the German Federal Criminal Court (BKA) is now conducting an investigation of Assadi’s activities on a German Attorney General’s mission, according to Deutsche Welle Persian.
After Assadi’s arrest on July 1st, 2018, in Germany, the authorities unearthed 2 notebooks, one of which was green and the other was black. They both contained useful information.
The black notebook was full up of instructions related to the 2018 bomb plot. The green one described Assadi’s travels to eleven countries in Europe, probably related to his role as a diplomat, and meeting with some Iranians.
Mullah regime’s agents based all over Europe.
The notebook contents revealed that Assadi had made at least 289 visits to many countries with 140 being to Germany. He had some receipts inside his notebook indicating he had given away quite substantial amounts of money like 5,000 Euros to other Iranians or to the regime’s agents based in Europe.
On January 22nd, Mr. Javad Dabiran who is the deputy director of the Iranian Resistance’s representative office in Germany, told Al-Arabiya: “The Iranian Resistance has specific information of the Iranian regime’s sleeper cells across Europe, which were commanded by Assadi.
The Iranian regime’s MOIS has a network of agents in Europe supported by the regime’s embassies that misuse their diplomatic facilities. Assadollah Assadi was at the head of the Iranian regime’s intelligence network in Europe.”
Iran’s network of terrorism and espionage in Europe
Some recently published information shows that Assadi was the head of Iran’s network of terrorism and espionage in Europe as well as playing the role of the third secretary of the regime’s embassy in Vienna.
The suggestion is that there is a large network of Iranians acting in Europe that could involve terrorist activities. Assadi’s trial may at last wake up Europe to the fact that Iranians have a network of contacts throughout Europe who could be a major terrorist threat if their activities aren’t fully exposed.
So far, Assadi is the first of Iran’s diplomats to be held accountable for terrorism. This is not just about Assadi, but the regime too and what it stands for.
EU has to clamp down on mullahs terrorist activities
According to the prosecutor, Assadi took orders from the regime’s officials. If the truth about Assadi and the regime is revealed at the conclusion of the trial, Europe has little choice but to clamp down on the terrorist activities that take place in Europe and so far have been ignored.
