Iran Uprising – No. 70

755 victims have been identified so far

The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) released the names of 31 more martyrs of the November 2019 uprising that swept 191 cities across Iran, bringing to 755 the number of those killed, who have been identified so far.

More than 100 days after the uprising, despite domestic and international calls, the Iranian regime, fearing the repercussions of its crime against humanity, continues to refuse to announce the number of those killed.  In a despicable game, the regime’s officials and different agencies, including Hassan Rouhani, the Supreme National Security Council, Rouhani’s Spokesman, the Interior Minister, and the Coroner’s Office deflect the announcement of the figures to each other.

In a press conference on February 16, Rouhani said, “The Coroner’s Office has the figures… They can announce it…. There’s no problem with that.” The next day, the Head of the Coroner’s Office responded, “The ratifications of the National Security Council, which is a subsidiary of the Government and is headed by the Interior Minister, have specified as to who must announce the figures… The Government must announce them… We have told the relevant authorities and have no duty to publicly announce them…. You can get all the information from the Interior Minister.”

Subsequently, Rouhani’s Spokesman Ali Rabiee said on February 19, “The figures will be announced by relevant authorities shortly. A decision has been made in this regard and the figures will be announced by one of the authorized entities in the next few days.”

The Iranian Resistance again calls on the United Nations Secretary-General to dispatch a fact-finding mission to Iran to investigate the status of those killed and wounded and visit the prisons and those arrested.
