U.S. Rep. Ted Poe: Iran’s regime must be held accountable for crimes against humanityPublished by International Liberty on December 19, 2015
The international community ought to hold the mullahs’ regime in Iran accountable for “crimes against humanity,” United States Congressman Ted Poe has said.
“It is important that we in the United States and the world understand that Iran is the number one state sponsor of terrorism in the world and they have their tentacles of mischief and murder throughout the world, not just in the Middle East,” said Rep. Poe, a Republican lawmaker and former judge from Texas.
He added that Iran’s regime had “gotten away with many of the crimes that they have committed over the last 20 years.”
“The world community, especially the United States, needs to hold the current government of Iran accountable for the murder of not just its own citizens, but the murder of people throughout the world of all religious faiths.”
“As the Chairman of the Terrorism Sub-committee of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives, I will continue to call out the Iranian government for its crimes against humanity,” Congressman Poe added.
Rep. Ted Poe made the remarks at a photo exhibition in the U.S. House of Representatives entitled ‘Iran’s Terror Machine & Rights Violations’ sponsored by the Organization of Iranian American Communities (OIAC).
