MEK Iran: 1988 Massacre Survivors
August 23, 2021, marked the 33rd anniversary of the 1988 massacre of political prisoners in Iran. To commemorate and support those who suffered at the hands of the regime, Iranians, and supporters of the MEK held a rally in Stockholm.
The mullahs’ regime be tried for genocide
Iranians demanded that the leaders of the mullahs’ regime be tried for genocide and crimes against humanity.
Ebrahim Raisi was a prominent member of the Gohardasht Prison Death Commission and a deputy prosecutor in Tehran in 1988. He oversaw the execution of 30,000 political prisoners, the majority of whom were members of the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), in the summer of 1988.
The criminal Khomeini executed 30,000
Members of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) have now described the atrocities they suffered at the hands of Raisi.
“I was imprisoned in Evin and Gohardasht prisons from 1984 to 1993. In 1988, the criminal Khomeini executed 30,000 MEK prisoners and executed them according to his explicit fatwa.
The victims were the ones who stood firm on their positions, their beliefs, and their MEK identity.” Survivor of the massacre, Mohammad Sar Kheyli, explained.
Zanjani had received more than 6,000 lashes
In his testimony, Kheyli spoke about the cruel torture the regime used with the prisoners, especially those who were MEK followers: “Ahmad Moghimi Zanjani had received more than 6,000 lashes. I do not know how to say this because I witnessed it myself and saw his feet. There was nothing left of his feet.
There was no toe left, no nails, no flesh. It was just a piece of bone with skin on it that had been taken from his leg. But even with that condition, Raisi sentenced him to death in 1985.” He continued.
Hamid Noury was involved in the killings
“In 1984, I was interrogated in Branch 3 of Evin Prison. The senior interrogator of Branch 3 was a person named Mohammad Moghisei or Nasserian who everyone knows to be a blood-thirsty of the MEK during the massacres. He had two deputies, one of whom was a person named Daneshjoo and the other was Hamid Nouri. These three people were torturing me.”
Hamid Noury was involved in the killings while working as an assistant to the deputy prosecutor in Karaj’s Gohardasht Prison. He was in charge of the assassination of a large number of persons. He is now facing trial in Stockholm, Sweden’s capital as a perpetrator of the 1988 massacre.
Inserting a blanket into my throat
“Nasserian was sitting on my back, pulling my neck back and inserting a blanket into my throat, and squeezing my throat. Meanwhile, another interrogator was flogging me. I was thinking to myself at that time what they want to do to me and they definitely want to kill me here.
Whenever I got to the point that I was suffocating, Nasserian lifted his hands from my throat, and I felt the pain of the whip all over my body and I started screaming very annoyingly.
The Regime’s role in the killing of thousands of political prisoners
After that, I was forced to run on the sand that had been poured on the ground and I was whipped at the same time. Every sand pierced into my feet like a nail, and at that time I felt severe pain and did not know what to do in that situation.” Mr. Kheyli said.
Like Mehdizadeh, many of the remaining legitimate plaintiffs in the case have testified via video link from Ashraf 3, the Albanian headquarters of over 2,500 MEK sympathizers, as well as other nations around the world. The plaintiffs are largely ex-prisoners who witnessed the regime’s atrocities across Iran’s death corridors during the 1988 massacre.
The Regime’s role in the killing of thousands of political prisoners, including teenagers and even pregnant women, will be exposed to the world’s press during his trial in Sweden.
