Key culprit in the 1988 Massacre of prisoners contends in Iran presidential ‘elections’Published by International Liberty Association on April 11, 2017
Ebrahim Raisi, Deputy Prosecutor of Tehran during the prison massacre in 1988 and one of the members of the ‘death commission’ who sent thousands of prisoners to the gallows without due process of law, has been nominated for the upcoming presidential elections in Iran.
An audio tape revealed last summer by the son of Hossein-Ali Montazeri, Khomeini’s designated successor at the time, exposed the ‘death commission’ fully.
In the tape recording of the meeting in Tehran between Ayatollah Montazeri and members of the death commission including Raisi, Montazeri is heard telling them that these executions were “the biggest crimes committed by the Islamic Republic”.
In that meeting Ayatollah Montazeri talked about how pregnant women and 15-year-old girls were executed without any justification.
It was subsequently exposed that Raisi was the most active and most ruthless member of the committee.
Raisi has held high judicial positions under Khamenei since then and was appointed last year as the head of the Astan-e Quds-e Razavi foundation, the most important financial institution backing the Supreme Leader and his vile policies.
