MEK Iran: Assadollah Assadi’s Verdict May Initiate a Change in Iran-EU Relations
We heard the fate of the Iranian diplomat-terrorist, Assadollah Assadi, and his three accomplices when a Belgian court announces its verdict on their attempted bombing of the Iranian 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 Paris.
Countering mullahs regime years of terrorism
Assadi’s arrest and his trial in Europe could be the start of actually countering the regime’s years of terrorism.
Terrorism has been part of the regime’s agenda since its takeover in 1979 after the Iranian revolution. The regime has consistently used its diplomatic missions and its appointed diplomats to murder members of the opposition, (NCRI) and (PMOI / MEK Iran), who have sought refuge in Europe.
The assassination of Prof. Kazem Rajavi, the Iranian Resistance’s representative in Switzerland, is just a single example of assassinations that have been carried out by the regime’s terrorists who traveled to Europe on diplomatic passports.
Largest terrorism and espionage network in Europe
Assadi’s case is different, as before his arrest he was the 3rd secretary in the regime’s embassy in Vienna. A lot of evidence was discovered in his car following his arrest on July 1st, 2018. The evidence included two notebooks one was green and the other was black.
Information about the bomb plot was found in the black notebook while the green notebook had information about Assadi’s journeys to 11 European countries, including Germany and France, and the meetings he had with several Iranians who were paid large amounts of money.
Evidence points to the fact that he was the de-facto leader of Tehran’s largest terrorism and espionage network in Europe. After his arrest, he decided he wasn’t going to co-operate with Belgian authorities which meant he actually refused to appear in court throughout his trial on November 27th and December 3rd in Belgium.
According to the prosecutors, it was the Iranian regime’s order for Assadi not to appear in court and answer questions. It is quite clear that the regime was behind the terrorist operation.
Assadi worked with the regime’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS)
Because Assadi worked with the regime’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS), it is quite clear that this attack was supported by the regime and Assadi was not doing the whole act alone.
In fact, Assadi was caught red-handed not long after handing over 500 grams of TATP explosives and a detonator to a terrorist couple in Luxembourg. Assadi ordered Amir Saadouni and his wife Nasimeh Naami to position the bomb as close as possible to Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the Iranian opposition president-elect.
Javad Zarif knowingly provided diplomatic cover to Assadi
Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and its chief Mohmmad Javad Zarif knowingly provided diplomatic cover to Assadi, so his mission could be accomplished.
Since Assadi’s arrest, Zarif has mobilized his ministry in order to save Assadi and has insisted he had “diplomatic immunity.”
Belgian prosecutors have said that according to Belgium’s 2002 legislation if Assadi had diplomatic immunity that doesn’t mean Belgian authorities couldn’t arrest him.
Under international law, Assadi commit murder
According to Austrian law, Belgian authorities were entitled to arrest Assadi because allegedly he was about to commit murder. Under international law allows authorities may strip Assadi of his diplomatic immunity and then arrest him.
The investigation has been carried out for nearly 2 years with no real end result but it has concluded that bombings were acts of terrorism.
It is clear that the regime misused its diplomatic privileges and relations with European countries and led to a mass murder right in the heart of Europe.
The EU’s decades of appeasing the mullahs must end
Winston Churchill said once that, “An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile—hoping it will eat him last.” The EU’s decades of appeasing the regime ended up within the regime’s clear attempt to plant a bomb right in the center of Europe.
European countries should close down the regime’s embassies and throw out the regime’s agents from their soil. Doing this could help to prevent Tehran from spreading uncontrolled chaos throughout the world.
