Maryam Rajavi: Inaction vis-à-vis the crimes of the clerical regime undermines human values

Message to conference entitled, “Seeking Justice for Victims of the 1988 Massacre of the political prisoners in Iran”

To put an end to the crimes of this regime, and to counter its warmongering actions in the region, the following steps are necessary:
1. An international fact-finding mission must be set up to seek justice for victims of the 1988 massacre, and hold the perpetrators of this grave crime against humanity accountable.
2. The UN Security Council must address the terrible situation of human rights in Iran. The UN Security Council must send to Iran an international delegation accompanied by representatives of the Iranian Resistance. They must visit the regime’s medieval prisons, visit the prisoners and particularly, meet those arrested during the November 2019 uprising.
3. As the Iranian Resistance called for, just a few hours after signing of the JCPOA, the six UN resolutions must be re-imposed and all sanctions on weapons sales to Iran must be re-imposed. Supporting the Iranian people’s desire to overthrow the regime ruling Iran is necessary for peace and stability in the region.
