- Iran Tribunal
In his interview entitled June 20, 1981: One of the Greatest Crimes of the 20th Century, Mansoor Hekmat likened the Islamic movement’s suppression of the left-leaning Iranian revolution as “a violent coup d’état that succeeded as a result of widespread executions and murders”:
They poured onto the streets and arrested anyone who did not look like a Muslim. If someone had salt and pepper in his/her pockets, they accused him/her of planning to throw it in the eyes of the Revolutionary Guards. They arrested anyone who had recited a poem, who was known to be a Socialist or supporter of women’s rights, anyone who was not veiled and anyone who looked Left wing and executed them that same night. Statistics, documents and witnesses proving these atrocities are ample. There will come a day when the people of Iran and the world will observe the trials of those who committed these crimes. On that day, the world will weep for the hundreds of thousands of victims of 20 June (30 Khordad 1360) and after and particularly 1988 (1367).
Last year, I wrote about Iran Tribunal’s investigations into the Islamic regime of Iran’s mass executions and massacre of political prisoners in the 1980s.
The tribunal’s verdict has now been issued. Here it is.
Not surprisingly, the regime has been found guilty of crimes against humanity.
Guilty as charged!
Next step: Arrest them!
