Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the Iranian Resistance, made these comments in a speech at a demonstration in Germany.
She said: “On behalf of the Iranian people and Resistance, I urge western governments to stop overlooking the violations of human rights in Iran. It might be profitable for western governments and companies to strike lucrative deals with the Iranian regime represented by the Revolutionary Guards Corps, but in subsequent steps, they will have to spend the same profits on containing insecurity and terrorism emanating from the regime.”
The profit she speaks of is a result of the lifting of economic sanctions against Iran in the 2015 nuclear deal.
She said: “We expect that the government of Germany would condition its relations with Tehran on end to executions and would respect the Iranian people’s demand for regime change.”
In the 28 years since the 1988 massacre, the international community has turned a blind eye to the cruelty of the regime but the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI), fighting on behalf of the Iranian people want to end this silence
She said: “Today, the people of Iran have targeted the ruling regime with a tide of protest and detestation in a relentless movement of seeking justice…I hail you all for participating in this demonstration to defend the ‘massacred’ human rights in Iran.”
Recent audio, proving the involvement of Iran’s current Justice Minister, Mostafa Pour-Mohammadi, and many other high-ranking Iranian government officials in the 1988 massacre did not even seem to shake the regime; Pour-Mohammadi was quoted as being ‘proud’ of his involvement.
When speaking of the bravery of the resistance forces, she quoted her husband and former leader of the resistance, Massoud Rajavi.
She said: “Our homeland, history, culture, and society have always nurtured the Mojahedin and provided us the possibility to raise pioneers and path-breakers from among Iran’s children.”
She added: “Hail to the People’s Mojahedin and to the people of Iran for remaining steadfast and for compelling the mullahs to confess their pride in committing such massacre and bloodshed. In this shameless confession, the people of Iran see the beginning of the end of the Velayat-e Faqih regime that will be certainly realized.”
