Iran plans to destroy the mass graves of the victims of the 1988 prisons massacrePublished by International Liberty Association on June 2, 2017
The Iranian regime plans to demolish a mass grave in Ahvaz which is the burial place of the martyrs of the 1988 massacre of political prisoners. This location was detected by volunteers who prepare reports for Sima TV after talking to martyrs’ families.
The mass grave is located next to Ahvaz’s Heaven-yard cemetery. The Iranian regime intends to remove all evidence buried in this mass grave by expanding a residential plan next to this location.
In a report on 1 June 2017 Amnesty International has warned that the destruction of this cemetery that contains the remains of at least 44 persons, who have been executed, would eliminate vital evidence of massacred political prisoners and reduce opportunities to bring the perpetrators of the 1988 massacre to justice.
