IRAN: Judiciary Chief Orders Protesters Crackdown
Iran uprising - No. 23
Fearing the escalating nationwide anti-regime protests, the head of the Iranian regime’s Judiciary, Sadegh Amoli Larijani, said: “I ask all prosecutors across the country to enter …. And their approach must be firm.”
He urged the regime’s repressive law enforcement institutions and judicial authorities to deal with the “rioters.” (News Network, State Television, January 1, 2018)
While calling the torturers and plainclothes agents of the regime as people with insight, he said: "People with insight and supporting Vali-e faqih will respond firmly as they did in 2009”.
By such words, Larijani meant to send the protesters to Evin, Gohardasht and Kahrizak prisons and safe houses of MOIS and IRGC intelligence where the arrested young people were tortured, raped and executed.
His comments come at the time that the people of Iran are determined to continue their uprising up to victory.
So far, more than 1,000 demonstrators have been arrested and at least 10 have been killed. Undoubtedly, Khamenei, Rouhani, Larijani and other regime leaders will be held accountable for these crimes.
The Iranian Resistance calls on the UN Security Council, the European Union, the United States, International Community, and international human rights bodies to take effective measures to prevent the massive crackdown on demonstrators and the quick release of detainees.
