Iran’s 1988 Massacre of the MEK: “Worst Crime Against Humanity Since WW2” – Geoffrey Robertson QC

Iran’s 1988 Massacre of the MEK: “Worst Crime Against Humanity Since WW2” – Geoffrey Robertson QC
Call for Justice Conference, Day2 of the Free Iran Global Summit – July 19, 2020

The Iranian regime carried out the massacre of over 30,000 political prisoners in July 1988, based on a fatwa (religious decree) issued by the regime’s founder Ruhollah Khomeini. The only crime of the prisoners was their steadfastness on their political opinion. Most of them were previously tried and had received sentences by the regime’s Judiciary. Hence, this massacre, could be described as the worst crime against humanity since the World War2

… The second day of the NCRI’s “Free Iran Global Summit” on July 19, 2020, was over the 1988 massacre. This event was attended by renowned human rights advocates. One of the speakers at this event was former United Nations judge and renowned human rights lawyer, Geoffrey Robertson QC. Mr. Robertson has studied the 1988 massacre for years and even published a book about it.
