INU - The Friends of a Free Iran in the European Parliament (FOFI), who has the support of around 300 parliamentarians from various political groups and countries, held a conference at the headquarters of the European Parliament in Strasbourg on September 13th, 2017. Dozens of MEPs called on the Council of the European Union, the member states, and the High Representative of the European Union, Mrs. Federica Mogherini, to end silence and inaction regarding the brutal violation of human rights in Iran. They demanded an independent investigation by the United Nations into the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in Iran in 1988, and that those responsible for the crime be brought to trial.
