MEK Iran: Memorial Event in Honour of Sir David Amess
On Sunday, October 17, thousands of residents of Ashraf 3, which is home to members of the People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran) in Albania, attended a memorial event in honor of Sir David Amess.
The criminal murder of Sir David Amess
“I was so deeply saddened to learn about the criminal murder of Sir David Amess, a great and beloved friend of the Iranian Resistance for three decades,” said Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), in her speech at the ceremony.
” We, the Iranian Resistance, as well as the Iranian people, have lost an extraordinary ally. The citizens of the United Kingdom and the rest of the globe have lost a powerful advocate for freedom and human rights.”
Mrs. Rajavi sent her “deepest sympathies to Sir David’s family, particularly his wife Julia, to the members of the British Parliamentary Committee for Iran Freedom, to his friends and colleagues, and to the British people.”
We are also here to celebrate his life and achievements
She also emphasized that “We have not gathered here to simply mourn Sir David’s demise,” she added. “We are also here to celebrate his life and achievements. I firmly believe that he has now joined all those who gave their lives for human rights, democracy, and justice for which he was a tireless champion.”
“Indeed, he was the enemy of dictatorships, especially mullah’s dictatorship. Therefore, after three decades of support for the Iranian People’s Resistance, he is now among martyrs for freedom. Much can be said about Sir David’s character, his kindness, compassion, big heart, moral integrity/ principles, and values.” Mrs. Rajavi continued.
He would always smile and tell everyone around him to persevere
“In victory or defeat, in good times and bad, he would always smile and tell everyone around him to persevere. Our Resistance movement owes a huge debt of gratitude to Sir David.”
Sir David Amess, according to Mrs. Rajavi, was involved on a number of fronts, including:
– In 2007, he joined 34 of his parliamentary colleagues in successfully challenging the PMOI’s politically motivated terrorist label, which had been applied at the regime’s request.
His legacy and memory will forever remain in Iran’s history
-His unwavering efforts to guarantee the safety and security of Iran’s liberation fighters, the PMOI, in Iraq’s Ashraf and Liberty camps.
-And, beginning in 2012, his drive to enable them safe resettlement to European countries, notably Albania.
He arrived at Ashraf 3 as soon as he could to pay a visit to PMOI members, who adore him and miss him greatly.
“His legacy and memory will forever remain in Iran’s history,” Mrs. Rajavi said at the end of her remarks. “And all of us look forward to the day when in a freed and liberated Iran; we can pay him tribute worthy of his efforts in support of freedom. Once again, I express my sincere condolences to his family, all Honorable members of the parliament and the British people.”
