A new book “Crime Against Humanity” by the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI, Mujahedin-e Khalq or MEK), unveiled at the European Parliament on Wednesday, lists the names of more than 5,000 people out of 30,000 political prisoners who were executed in Iran during the 1988 massacre.

The book also details the findings of 35 commissions looking into the atrocities and lists the locations of three dozen mass graves in Iran, The Washington Times reported on October 24, 2019.

The book compiles addresses of many of the secret graves and the names of 35 death commissions involved in this horrendous slaughter, the majority of whose members are now among key officials of the clerical regime. #1988Massacre

"Members of the European Parliament on Wednesday used a book presentation to heap praise on the head of a leading Iranian dissident group while urging European Union member states to do more to confront Iran over human rights abuses," The Washington Times wrote.

The Mujahedin-e Khalq, or MEK, has emerged as a leading expatriate dissident group battling the Iranian regime, it wrote.

"The majority of those killed in 1988 were members of the MEK. MEK leader Maryam Rajavi was the event’s keynote speaker, where she called for a 'firm European policy which necessarily requires lending support to the Iranian people’s resistance [in order] to establish democracy and popular sovereignty" in Iran."

Mrs. Rajavi said that recent events, which include confrontation with tankers passing through the Strait of Hormuz and an attack on a major petroleum refinery in Saudi Arabia, are proof that her warning to the European Parliament two years ago was coming true: “I warned then that ‘if the ruling religious fascism in Iran is not dealt with decisively, they will impose a fatal war on the region and the world.’”

Today, we are holding aloft their standard, seeking justice. We are committed to achieve freedom and the overthrow of the clerical regime is our responsibility. And we will not relent until we reach this goal. #1988Massacre https://www.maryam-rajavi.com/en/item/maryam-rajavi-crime-against-humanity-iran-paris …

Seeking justice for the victims of the #1988Massacre, and for all the oppression inflicted on the people of #Iran is a nationalist commitment. It is our commitment and our steadfast resolve to achieve freedom. It is a staunch pledge to overthrow the mullahs’ theocratic regime.

Several dozen EU parliamentarians attended the event for the release of the book, which was held in a committee meeting room at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France, The Washington Times wrote.

Anna Fotyga, a Polish member of the legislature and a former minister of foreign affairs who chaired Wednesday’s proceedings, called on the European Union to “focus on human rights abuses when it comes to relations with Iran.”

Patrizia Toia, a Member of the European Parliament from Italy, told Mrs. Rajavi, “You have our full support in your struggle to achieve freedom and democracy for your people.”

Background to Iran’s 1988 massacre:

More than 30,000 political prisoners were massacred in Iran in the summer of 1988.
The massacre was carried out on the basis of a fatwa by Khomeini.
The vast majority of ofthe victims were activists of the opposition PMOI (MEK).
Death Commissions approved all the death sentences.
Ebrahim Raisi, a member of the Death Commissions, is today Iran’s Judiciary Chief.
Alireza Avaei, a member of the Death Commissions, is today Hassan Rouhani’s Justice Minister.
The perpetrators of the 1988 massacre have never been brought to justice.
On August 9, 2016, an audiotape was published for the first time of Khomeini’s former heir acknowledging that the 1988 massacre took place and had been ordered at the highest levels
