IRAN: “I was told I could see my father before he was hanged”

NCRI – Following the mass execution of Sunni political prisoners in Iran on August 2, Asna Rahimi, the 11-year-old daughter of Bahman Rahimi, one of those executed at the hands of the mullahs’ regime, talks about the heartbreaking experience of her last farewell with her beloved dad.

Watch young Asna Rahimi’s account which has been subtitled in English:

On August 2, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, described the mass execution of Sunni prisoners in Gohardasht Prison, carried out on the anniversary of the 1988 massacre of political prisoners in Iran, an appalling crime against humanity. The regime is trying in vain to contain the volatile social atmosphere and popular protests by terrorizing the public, she said.

The time has come for the UN Human Rights Council and the UN Security Council to end their silence and bring the record of the Iranian regime’s crimes before the International Criminal Court. Ali Khamenei and other leaders of the regime as well as direct perpetrators of these crimes must be brought to justice, Maryam Rajavi reiterated.
