NCRI – The Iranian Resistance strongly condemns admission of terrorist Brigadier General Mohammad Najjar, Iranian regime’s Defense Minister, to Austria to participate in the annual conference of United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs and Crime Prevention.
This criminal is visiting Europe although he has been on the EU blacklist of human rights violators since October 2011. Admission of this criminal who should be tried for crime against humanity for his barbaric suppression of the popular uprising and the slaughter of many innocent people in other countries in terrorist operations is a flagrant insult to human rights, fight against terrorism, and the values United Nations and European Union are built upon with no outcome but to discredit EU resolutions and to embolden the criminals ruling Iran.

Subsequent to issuing death warrant for Vice- President Dr. Tariq al-Hashemi, the Government of Iraq is now after eradicating Finance Minister Dr. Rafie al-Issawi, his office staff, his family members and his bodyguards. Protesting against this “illegal impudence and insolence”, al-Issawi rightly pointed out that no one with minimum respect for law would resort to such measures whatsoever.
