رشته توییت: خلاصه اظهارات شاهدین قتل‌عام۶۷:
1)گواهی شاهدین در رابطه با #قتل_عام۶۷ و نقش دژخیم #حمید_نوری نشان می‌دهد که موضوع محدود به زندان گوهردشت و نوری نیست. او یکی از هزاران جانی وقاتل و شکنجه‌گر دست پرورده این رژیم در۴۲سال گذشته است
#justice4IranMassacre #1988Massacre
۲)این گواهی‌ها مربوط به زندان گوهردشت وبرخی #اوین از سوی کسانی است که از #قتل_عام۶۷ جان بدر بردند
اما از بسیاری از زندانها درسراسر #ایران حتی یک نفر زنده نمانده تا روایتگر واقعه باشد
#justice4IranMassacre #1988massacre
۳) اگر ابعاد آنچه در آن ماهها در تمامی زندانها در #تهران و سراسر #ایران گذشت را در نظر بگیریم جای تردیدی نیست که #قتل_عام۶۷ بزرگترین #جنایت_علیه_بشریت بعدازجنگ جهانی دوم بود. جنایتی که مسئولانش همچنان در راس هرم قدرت در ایران هستند

I welcome the adoption of the 67th United Nations resolution condemning the grave and systematic violations of #HumanRights in #Iran.… Image
Once again, I emphasize that those responsible for the majority of the crimes to which the resolution has referred are the very people who turned the November 2019 uprising into a bloodbath, killing at least 1,500. #IranProtests
Despite failing to address many aspects of the flagrant violations of human rights in Iran, the UN resolution leaves no doubt that the clerical regime in #Iran is the world’s leading abuser of human rights today.

Online conference weighs in on the threat of #Iran supporting global terrorism that continues to dangerously undermine global security.

For the past four decades, the mullahs have left nothing but death in their wake. This theocratic fascist dictatorship has wrecked #Iran’s economy and turned this once-great nation into an int'l pariah.
Rt. Hon. Theresa Villiers, MP
#Iran & its IRGC are a threat in many places around the world. It is shocking that the UN arms embargo on Iran is due to expire in just a few days.

Today, on behalf of hundreds of victims, families & human rights experts, I wrote to @oberlincollege president @ctambar objecting to the employement of M.J. Mahallati, a man implicated in the coverup of the #1988massacre of political prisoners in Iran.
2/ For those who may not know, Oberlin is a prestigious liberal arts university in the US state of Ohio. It's known for its academics, but also its progressive politics.
On its own site, it claims to be committed to fostering a sustainable and just society.
3/ Why, then, does @oberlincollege employ Mohammad Jafar Mahallati?

Mahallati was Iran's ambassador the UN during the #1988Massacre of political prisoners. To learn more about those killings, read this Amnesty Report.…

Rouhani not only does not represent the Iranian people, but she must be tried for crimes against humanity, and he has no place in the United Nations!

@USADarFarsi @JosepBorrellF @eu_eeas @StateDept @USUN @CanadaUN @CanadaONU @franceonu
The regime is showing every indication that they’re on their last legs. Everyone knows they are a regime of terror. From the late 1970s until now, every year has been terror and slaughter. They have the worst record in killing their own people.
#No2Rouhani #NoImpunity4Mullahs
EU has refused 2 support to the US. They claim 2 defend freedom & democracy & human rights. But they have abandoned those principles. They are doing business with a barbaric regime. They have abandoned methods of pressure that can free the ppl of #Iran from bondage.

British parliament hosts conference focusing on the horrific 1988 massacre in Iran & seeking justice after 32 years

#Iran is planning new charge against Nazani Zaghari-Ratcliffe. From Nazanin’s life to nuclear weapons, we cannot negotiate with this regime. Lifting of sanctions encouraged the mullahs to think we do not care where they buy weapons from.…
Obviously, this must change, and the UK should respectfully reject the EU’s approach on #Iran and join our American ally in exerting maximum pressure on the regime in Iran.

Holding this exhibition is particularly inspiring and effective on the 32nd anniversary of the #1988Massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in #Iran, one of the most horrific cases committed by the clerical regime on Khomeini’s fatwa.

The international community must adopt a firm policy and apply maximum pressure on the regime, including by referring its #HumanRights record to the UN Security Council. #1988Massacre ImageImage

Ruhollah Hosseinian, a senior political & intel official in #Iran, has died of Covid-19.

He was a staunch advocate of the mullahs' use of executions & the #1988Massacre of over 30,000 political prisoners in just a few months.

His words are quite telling.
Hosseinian had once specifically said:
Believe me & I swear to God, we were murderers ourselves once!

This individual was selected (not elected) as a member of the regime's Majlis (parliament) from the Iranian capital Tehran for two terms in the past.

Very telling credentials. ImageImage
