Press release by: Struan Stevenson MEP
The execution on 1 June of Mr Gholmareza Khosravi, a member of the main Iranian democratic opposition, PMOI-MEK, was a further step into the abyss of depravity that marks the tyrannical mullah regime in Tehran.

 Mr Khosravi had spent a total of 12 years in different prisons in Iran, including 40 months in solitary confinement. He was accused of donating money to the Iranian resistance satellite TV.

As Mrs Maryam Rajavi, the Iranian opposition leader has said: “It was after the savage raid on the political prisoners in Ward 350 of Evin Prison that Ali Khamenei’s henchmen decided to carry out this criminal sentence.

They considered Gholamreza as the main leader of protest and revolt by prisoners in Ward 350 last April.”

Amnesty International described the execution of Gholamreza Khosravi as a violation of "international law" and even the violation of the regime's own laws.

I strongly condemn this cowardly act and call on the EU and Member States to do the same and to call for all political prisoners to be released immediately.

The so-called “moderate” president Rouhani must be held accountable for this barbarity.
