She continued: “31 years on, the perpetrators of this massacre continue to be among the highest officials of the Iranian regime. In recent months, Khamenei appointed one of the principal executioners involved in the 1988 massacre as head of the Judiciary. Another executioner is Rouhani’s Minister of Justice. The regime also continues to refuse giving information on the victims of the 1988 massacre and the families of those massacred are still being persecuted. Despite passage of 31 years, they still do not know where their loved ones are buried, “
She called on the international community to end three decades of impunity for the clerical regime’s leaders in being held accountable for their crimes and refer Iran’s human rights violations dossier, particularly the massacre in 1988, to the UN Security Council.
Mrs. Rajavi emphasized that “Khamenei and other leaders of the Iranian regime must face justice for committing crimes against humanity. The United Nations must launch an international mission to investigate the 1988 massacre in Iran. And the world must recognize the Iranian people’s right to resist and fight for the overthrow of the ruling religious fascism.”
