Amnesty International

Amnesty International’s Secretary General Agnès Callamard stated: “That Ebrahim Raisi has risen to the presidency instead of being investigated for the crimes against humanity of murder, enforced disappearance and torture, is a grim reminder that impunity reigns supreme in Iran”.


(PMOI / MEK Iran) and (NCRI): General Agnès Callamard, Ebrahim Raisi has risen to the presidency instead of being investigated for crimes against humanity.


In 2018, our organization documented how Ebrahim Raisi had been a member of the ‘death commission’ which forcibly disappeared and extrajudicially executed in secret thousands of political dissidents in Evin and Gohardasht prisons near Tehran in 1988.

The circumstances surrounding the fate of the victims and the whereabouts of their bodies are, to this day, systematically concealed by the Iranian authorities, amounting to ongoing crimes against humanity. “ Callamard noted.


1988 Massacre

(NCRI) and (PMOI / MEK Iran): The mullahs must be held to account for what went on in1988.


Death Commission in Tehran in 1988

Ebrahim Raisi was a member of the infamous Death Commission in Tehran in 1988. Along with Hossein Ali Nayyeri, the Sharia judge; Morteza Eshraghi, Tehran Prosecutor; Mostafa Pour-Mohammadi, Deputy Minister of Intelligence; and several other criminal mullahs such as Ali Mobasheri, Mohammad Moghesiye, Esmail Shushtari, and Ali Razini.


(NCRI) and (PMOI / MEK Iran): high ranking officials of the Iranian regime who are responsible for crimes against humanity, and were members of the “Death Committee” during the 1988 massacre of MEK supporters, but enjoy impunity and have actually been promoted to higher positions within the mullah’s ranks.

Khomeini fatwa

The Supreme Leader Khomeini task the group to carry out his infamous fatwa to massacre imprisoned activists affiliated with the main democratic opposition. As a result, thirty thousand political prisoners, mostly members of the MEK, were summarily executed in a couple of months during the massacre.

fatwa issued by regime founder Ruhollah Khomeini

(PMOI / MEK Iran) and (NCRI): In the summer of 1988, more than 30,000 political prisoners, most of whom were mujahedin-Khalq (PMOI / MEK Iran) members, were executed based on a fatwa issued by Ruhollah Khomeini and buried in mass graves.


Raisi has presided over a spiraling crackdown

“As Head of the Iranian Judiciary, Ebrahim Raisi has presided over a spiraling crackdown on human rights which has seen hundreds of peaceful dissidents, human rights defenders, and members of persecuted minority groups arbitrarily detained.

Under his watch, the judiciary has also granted blanket immunity to government officials and security forces responsible for unlawfully killing hundreds of men, women, and children and subjecting thousands of protesters to mass arrests and at least hundreds to enforced disappearance, and torture, and other ill-treatment during and in the aftermath of the nationwide protests of November 2019.” Callamard noted, addressing the November 2019 crackdown.


(NCRI) and (PMOI / MEK Iran): Raisi must face justice in an international tribunal.


Khamenei named Raisi as Chief of the Judiciary

Khamenei named Raisi as Chief of the Judiciary in March 2019. Raisi’s history of assassinating democratic activists has only become worse since then. Raisi oversaw the executions of 251 individuals in 2019, 267 people in 2020, and the figure continues to rise.

“Ebrahim Raisi’s rise to the presidency follows an electoral process that was conducted in a highly repressive environment and barred women, members of religious minorities and candidates with opposing views from running for office.”

“We continue to call for Ebrahim Raisi to be investigated for his involvement in past and ongoing crimes under international law, including by states that exercise universal jurisdiction.”


Ebrahim Raisi

(PMOI / MEK Iran) and (NCRI): Ebrahim Raisi a mass murderer appointed as head of the Iranian regime’s Judiciary.


The crisis of systematic impunity in Iran

“It is now more urgent than ever for member states of the UN Human Rights Council to take concrete steps to address the crisis of systematic impunity in Iran including by establishing an impartial mechanism to collect and analyze evidence of the most serious crimes under international law committed in Iran to facilitate fair and independent criminal proceedings,” Callamard concluded.

Raisi has been blacklisted for violating human rights. The international community has the opportunity to put an end to the regime’s human rights atrocities by holding Raisi and other violators accountable.


The US Treasury

(PMOI / MEK Iran) and (NCRI): US Treasury sanctioned top officials of the Iranian regime including the sun of Supreme leader and Ebrahim Raisi, head of Iran’s Judiciary and a key member of the Death Commission in 1988 sending 30,000 MEK members to gallows.
