“Having enjoyed impunity for such horrible crime, the regime emboldened to spread its crimes to the Middle East which is still ongoing. They turned Syria into a blood bath and fuelled the war in Yemen. 

“In recent months, the mullahs and their Revolutionary Guards struck at vessels in international waters, and at oil installations and airports in their neighboring countries. 

“Clearly, they do so because they do not confront any firmness.” 

Maryam Rajavi added: “The dossier of the massacre of political prisoners must be referred to the UN Security Council and international courts, and perpetrators would face justice.” 

Background to Iran’s 1988 massacre: 

  • More than 30,000 political prisoners were massacred in Iran in the summer of 1988. 
  • The massacre was carried out on the basis of a fatwa by Khomeini. 
  • The vast majority of the victims were activists of the opposition PMOI, also known as the Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK)
  • Death Commissions approved all the death sentences. 
  • Ebrahim Raisi, a member of the Death Commissions, is today Iran’s Judiciary Chief. 
  • Alireza Avaei, a member of the Death Commissions, is today Hassan Rouhani’s Justice Minister. 
  • The perpetrators of the 1988 massacre have never been brought to justice. 
  • On August 9, 2016, an audiotape was published for the first time of Khomeini’s former heir acknowledging that the 1988 massacre took place and had been ordered at the highest levels.
