To National Parliaments, the European Parliament and the Inter-Parliamentary Union

 

Dear Sirs and Madams,

 

As you may know, 25 years ago thousands of Iranian political prisoners were executed following an order issued by Rouhollah Khomeini, then the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Most of the executed persons were spending their prison terms to which they had been convicted before. The 1988 executions were a massive violation of the fundamental rights of humans and also the laws of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

25 years after that events, the demand of the survivors and the families of the victims for establishing the truth and legal prosecution of the persons responsible for that events are still prevailing. We call on all parliaments to support these demands and put the necessary pressure on the Iranian government.

This year, the Canadian Parliament condemned the mass murder of political prisoners in Iran in the summer of 1988 as a crime against humanity, honored the memory of the victims buried in the mass graves at Khavaran cemetery and other locations in Iran, and established September 1 as a day of solidarity with political prisoners in Iran. Your support for this initiative will strengthen it and be a step towards the establishment of truth and achieving justice.

Sincerely Yours.

 

Political and Executive Committee of the Iranian People’s Fadaian Organization (Majority)
