We are a number of former political prisoners of Iran in different European countries, organized in an association named ‘’ Alliance of Former Political Prisoners of Iran.
Given the history of your struggle against fundamentalism and according to your humanitarian approach to the most vulnerable issues in the world, we are delighted to congratulate you on your new position as a Special Rapporteur for Human Rights in Iran.
We would like to remind you of the ruthless-massacre of 30000 political prisoners in Iran by Khomeini and his Authorities in the summer of 1988.
After 28 years, an audio file from one of the political hierarchy that was Khomeini’s successors has recently published. It was part of the genocide unfolding for everybody to see. We are asking you to keep on raising your voice in international forums concerning these innocent martyrs.
Our main demand is the prosecution of those involved in the crime against humanity, people who now hold offices in government agencies. Without any doubt, this is one of the gloomiest points in the history of the Iranian nation – and it should never be forgotten.
The Union of Former Political Prisoners of Iran
