NCRI – ‘Don’t Touch Cain’ Human Rights Forum issued a statement on increasing wave of executions by Iranian regime as the world record holder for executions, announcing that: “To understand the nature of the Iranian regime, it is important to point out the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in 1988 in Iran and that the current government is continuing the same killings.”
“This massacre has recently been referred to by the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in Iran, and the regime has recently acknowledged that it has committed the massacre.”
Referring to the presence of Mostafa Pour-Mohammadi and Alireza Avaii, two members of the “Death Commission” in Tehran and Khuzestan, in the first and second governments of Hassan Rouhani, the Human Rights Association “Do Not Touch Cain” adds: “The silence of the international community in this regard has encouraged the regime to continue to violate international human rights law.”
“It is therefore important for the United Nations General Assembly to form an international commission of inquiry on 1988 massacre in Iran and call on the ruling regime in Iran to stop the death sentence. The abolition of the death penalty and respect for human rights should be at the center of any multilateral or bilateral meeting with the ruling regime in Iran,” the human rights organization said.
