MEK Iran: Mullahs Diplomat Sentenced to 20 Years in Jail on a Terrorism Charge

Assadi’s trial

(NCRI) and (PMOI / MEK Iran): Assadollah Assadi, the Iranian diplomat turned terrorist that was based in the Iranian regime’s Vienna embassy has been convicted for plotting to attack the Iranian opposition group just outside Paris in June 2018.

 

Iranian diplomat Assadollah Assadi has been sentenced to 20 years in a Belgian prison for his part in a bomb attack attempt against an Iranian opposition,  The People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran) and the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), rally in Paris in 2018.

Assadi’s three accomplices were given lengthy sentences.

Three other Iranians with dual citizenship were also sentenced for their part in the attempted bomb attack.

Tehran has denied any involvement in the bomb attack, but the Iranian opposition organization, the (PMOI / MEK Iran), says that the Iranian regime planned the attack.

 

(NCRI) and (PMOI / MEK Iran): Iranian diplomat in the Iranian embassy in Vienna, organized for them to plant a bomb at the 2018 annual Free Iran rally that took place in Villepinte just outside Paris.

 

Assadi used his diplomatic status to bring the bomb to Europe

Assadi used his diplomatic status to bring 500g of highly explosive TATP into Vienna from Tehran by plane. He then took the explosive and detonator to Luxembourg were passed it on to two of his accomplices.

If the bomb attack had gone ahead, many hundreds, possibly thousands of attendees at the rally could have been killed or seriously injured. Fortunately, intelligence services were watching Assadi and the other three after a tip-off, and they were all arrested before the bomb could be planted.

25,000 people were estimated to be present at the rally, including ex-US President Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, and ex-Colombian presidential candidate Ingrid Betancourt.

 

Terrorism Trial Begins

(NCRI) and (PMOI / MEK Iran): The Belgian court sentenced him to 20 years in prison – the maximum sentence requested by prosecutors.

Assadi tried to claim diplomatic immunity

Assadi tried to claim diplomatic immunity, but because he was arrested in Germany on his way back to Vienna after delivering the explosive, he wasn’t entitled to immunity from arrest.

Belgian prosecutors claimed that Assadi worked for a notorious Iranian terrorist organization, Department 312. This state organization is on the EU’s list of terrorist organizations.

The two Iranians with dual Belgian citizenship, Amir Saadouni, and Nasimeh Naami had been recruited by Assadi years ago to infiltrate the MEK and pass on useful information about them.

 

(NCRI) and (PMOI / MEK Iran): Assadi was at the head of the Iranian regime’s intelligence network in Europe.

MEK the main opposition to the Iranian dictatorship

The MEK (Mujahedin-e Khalk) has been in existence since before the Shah was deposed in the Iranian Revolution. It was listed as a terrorist organization at one time, but no longer.

It is the main opposition to the Iranian dictatorship. The two accomplices were imprisoned for 18years each and stripped of their Belgian citizenship. A third accomplice, Mehrdad Arefani, was sentenced to 17 years in prison.
