NCRI Staff

NCRI - Back in 1988, the Iranian Regime slaughtered over 30,000 political prisoners- including children, the elderly, and pregnant women, in a massacre that has continued to the current day.

Most of the victims were members or supporters of the Iranian opposition group, the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI), but many were only caught with the group’s literature.

For the Iranian Regime, that was evidence enough and they were subjected to kangaroo trials- presided over by the infamous “death commissions”-which lasted just a few minutes and did not allow for a defence.

This new resolution welcomes the minor improvements that Iran has made- although considering the timing of the small amendments to their death penalty, it is likely that the Regime only did this to gain approval from the UN.
