The new book by the NCRI-US justifies Raisi’s role in the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in 1988 and the murder of 1,500 protesters in 2019.

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, September 18, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – The second edition of ‘IRAN: Call for justice – The Case of Holding Ebrahim Raisi Accountable for Crimes Against Humanity “by the US Representation of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI-USA) will be released on Tuesday, September 21, 2021, the day the new President of the Iranian regime, Ebrahim Raisi, will be at 76th. The book focuses on demonstrating the role Raisi has played in outrageous human rights violations, above all in the massacre of thousands of political prisoners in 1988 and the murder of 1,500 demonstrators in November 2019.
In the summer of 1988, over 30,000 political prisoners were executed in dozens of cities in Iran, following a fatwa by former Supreme Leader Ruhollah Khomeini. The victims of this outspoken case of crimes against humanity were primarily (90%) members or supporters of the main Iranian opposition, the Organization of the People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI), also known as Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK).
As can be seen from Khomeini’s handwritten fatwa, the 1988 massacre amounts to genocide. Current Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei was president during the slaughter, and Raisi, who continues his stooge role to this day, was one of four members of Tehran’s notorious Death Commission. The book details the evidence that both Khamenei and Raisi have been brought before an international tribunal.
Sweetheart. Michael B. Mukasey, the 81st Attorney General of the United States, writes in the preface: â€œIn the summer of 1988, a committee of four senior Iranian officials, known as the ‘Death Committee’, negotiated the provisions of a fatwa adopted by then Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khomeini was issued to kill tens of thousands of Iranian prisoners, most of them members of the MEK. Now Ebrahim Raisi, the new President of Iran, has been moved out of the shadows for the first time – in “IRAN: Call for Justice” – and as a member of this committee has been brought into the limelight. This narrow volume tells the world a lot of what it needs to know about Raisi’s criminal acts and his bloody rise to power … This important volume deserves to be read and acted upon. “
In his foreword, former Connecticut Democratic Senator Joe Lieberman writes: â€œRaisi does not respond to allegations of leading the 1988 death commissions that resulted in the deaths of thousands of his Iranian compatriots. He does not deny his involvement. He proudly defends it. In Raisi’s own words, “I am honored to have fought hypocrisy” [MEK]. ‘ So it won’t be difficult to bring him to an international court of law. Raisi justifies the genocide of thousands of Iranians only with her political opinion. And therefore he must be tried for the crimes against humanity he has committed.
“… We should see him recalled by the presidency and, above all, that this government in Tehran be overturned so that the gifted people in Iran can again elect their own leaders and enjoy political and economic freedom and opportunities.”
Geoffrey Robertson QC, who served as the first president and appellate judge at the UN War Crimes Court in Sierra Leone, outlines the series of violations of international law by the Iranian regime during the 1988 massacre, â€œwhich is both state responsibility and individual accountability pull yourself “. for war crimes and crimes against humanity. In his introduction to the book, he states: â€œThe situation in Iran today illustrates the consequences of impunity for crimes against humanity that have never been properly investigated or recognized … Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei was president in 1988 and fully supported the prison massacres and quite. Evin Prison, scene of the mass murder in 1988, remains a brutal environment for blindfolded prisoners arrested for no more serious offense than participating in student demonstrations or contacting NGOs concerned with human rights … “
The evidence of Raisi’s involvement is overwhelming. While the concerns in the US and European Union may be the JCPOA, the real problem facing them should be the need to take legal action against Ebrahim Raisi. Iran in 2021 is on the cusp of fundamental change. Supreme leader of the clergy, Ali Khamenei, sees his regime increasingly weak and in danger after a series of uprisings since 2017, systemic corruption, a bankrupt economy and an explosive society. Raisi, a notorious mass murderer, was handpicked by Khamenei to assume the office of president of the regime.
“IRAN: Call for Justice” argues that if the world community is serious about ending the vicious human rights abuses in Iran, it must take effective steps to end the impunity surrounding the 1988 massacre and halt the unprecedented number of executions . Raisi’s presidency and the ongoing protest movement should move the world to recognize the right of the Iranian people to determine their future and establish a free, democratic, secular, non-nuclear republic in Iran.
