In Iran today, the perpetrators of crime against humanity are sitting at the highest levels of government. Ebrahim Raisi, the regime’s Deputy Prosecutor General at the time and one of the key members of the Death Commission ordering the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in 1988, is now the regime’s president.
As Amnesty International Secretary-General said, “That Ebrahim Raisi has risen to the presidency instead of being investigated for the crimes against humanity of murder, enforced disappearance, and torture, is a grim reminder that impunity reigns supreme in Iran…”
The Iranian authorities’ systematic concealment of the fate of victims and the whereabouts of their bodies, amounts to ongoing crimes against humanity.
On the anniversary of the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in Iran in the summer of 1988, we’re going to discuss how the genocide impacted Iranian women.
