The Iranian Regime is responsible for one of the most horrific crimes against humanity of the 20th Century but the international community has largely met this with silence.
The formation of an international Commission of Inquiry into the massacre of some 30,000 political prisoners in Iran during the summer of 1988 has been called for by Human Rights defenders, dignitaries, European politicians and the Iranian Resistance, who aim to bringing those responsible for this crime against humanity to justice.
Workers' Syndicate of the Tehran and Suburbs Bus Company said on Wednesday, 16 August 2017 that Reza Shahabi, an imprisoned member of this labour union was on hunger strike in Rajaei Shahr (Gohardssht) prison in Karaj.
A group of political prisoners in Gohardasht prison, on July 30, 2017, issued a statement condemning the 1988 massacre in Iran, calling on the perpetrators of this crime against humanity to be brought to justice.
The former intelligence minister of Iran has admitted that former Supreme Leader Ruhollah Khomeini ordered the executions of 30,000 political prisoners affiliated with the Iranian Resistance group, People’s Mojahedin Organisation of Iran (PMOI or MEK) in the summer of 1988.
