U.S. Congress New Legislation: Yet Another Achievement by the Movement Seeking Justice for the Victims of the 1988 Massacre
By Mahmoud Hakamian
On Thursday April 26, 2018, the US House of Representatives passed H.R.4744 Act --holding the Iranian regime accountable for its brutality—with an overwhelming majority of 410-2.
The bipartisan legislation holds Iranian regime officials accountable for their role in human rights abuses and hostage-taking, and requires imposition of sanctions against them. The bill also condemns and calls for investigations into the 1988 mass executions of 30,000 political prisoners.
