The Iranian regime's Judiciary spokesperson confirmed that Ebrahim Raisi will take over as Iran's next Judiciary Chief, replacing mullah Sadeq Amoli Larijani on March 8.

Raisi (a.k.a. Seyyed Ebrahim Rais al-Sadati) was Deputy Tehran Prosecutor and a key member of the Khomeini’s notorious “Death Commission” in the Iranian capital which oversaw the mass executions of political prisoners during the 1988 massacre.

The US condemned on Tuesday the appointment of a notorious ayatollah, responsible for the deaths of thousands of political prisoners in the 1980s, to head Iran’s all-powerful Judiciary.

US State Department’s Deputy Spokesperson Robert Palladino tweeted, in both Farsi and English, that the appointment of conservative cleric Ebrahim Raisi was a “disgrace”, given that he served on the Tehran Death Committee that sent thousands of political prisoners to the gallows in the summer of 1988.

One of the men responsible for the 1988 Iranian massacre of political prisoners has been appointed as the new Judiciary Chief by Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.

Ebrahim Raisi, who replaces Sadeq Amoli Larijani, sat on the Tehran Death Committee with Iran’s former Justice Minister Mostafa Pour Mohammadi, and sent tens of thousands of political prisoners to the gallows for refusing to denounce their political affiliation to the opposition group, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).
