MEK Iran: EU & Betray Democracy
According to the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), and the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), Enrique Mora, the European Union’s Deputy High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, attended Ebrahim Raisi’s inauguration on Thursday.
The 1988 massacre
Raisi was a henchman in the 1988 massacre. It is a sham of democracy and the fundamental ideals of human rights that drive the establishment of the European Union and for which tens of millions perished in Europe during the twentieth century to legitimize the presidency of someone with a lengthy history of genocide and crimes against humanity.
In 1988, Raisi proudly assumed a leadership position in the massacre of political prisoners that followed a fatwa issued by the regime’s founder, Ruhollah Khomeini. The People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran) was specifically targeted in that religious decree, which stated that involvement in a group that opposed the theocratic regime constituted evidence of “enmity against God,” for which a person should be executed without mercy.
November 2019 uprising
The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, the UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in Iran, seven UN Special Rapporteurs, Amnesty International, and 152 leading international human rights experts have all called for an international investigation into Ebrahim Raisi and the 1988 massacre as a crime against humanity.
The regime’s repressive forces fire bullets at citizens
The launch is taking place as the regime’s repressive forces fire bullets at citizens taking to the streets in various parts of the country, chanting “down with the dictator,” “down with Khamenei,” “down with the principle of Velayat-e-Faqih.”
This resulted in the killing and wounding of many unarmed protesters. At least 62 inmates have been executed in Iran’s various cities in the six weeks following Raisi’s nomination as president.
Genocide and crimes against humanity
This visit to Tehran under religious fascism to attend the installation of the henchman of 1988 is a humiliation to the Iranian people, and it will re-enforce the sense of impunity of the governing regime. Undoubtedly it will continue to carry on with executions, killings, terrorism, and warmongering in the middle east.
It is past time for the European Union and its member nations to take a position on the right side of history and report the 1988 massacre and human rights violations in Iran to the UN Security Council so that the dictator’s officials can face charges for genocide and crimes against humanity.
