Mrs. Rajavi: The case of the regime’s human rights violations must be referred to the UN Security Council and its leaders must be prosecuted for their crimes

Ali Khamenei, in the final days of his rule, is shedding more and more blood in fear of the continuation of the nationwide uprising. In addition to the execution of Mohsen Shekari and Majidreza Rahnavard, the regime hanged at least 24 other prisoners in eight days from December 7 to 14, in Hamedan, Arak, Qazvin, Khorramabad, Zahedan, Gorgan, Adelabad of Shiraz, Taibad, Saravan, Maku, Gohardasht and Qom. Twelve of these prisoners were executed in one day alone on Monday, December 12.

Today, two prisoners named Mehdi Khoshbakht and Hamed Nobakht were hanged in Hamadan prison. On Monday, December 12, five prisoners in Arak prison, two prisoners in Qazvin prison, two prisoners in Khorramabad prison, one prisoner in Adel Abad prison of Shiraz, one prisoner in Zahedan prison, and one prisoner in Gorgan prison were executed.

On Tuesday, December 13, one prisoner in Gorgan prison, another prisoner in Taibad prison on Sunday, December 11, three on Saturday, December 10, in Saravan prison and one prisoner in Zahedan prison, and on Thursday, December 8, one prisoner in Maku prison, and on Wednesday, December 7, three prisoners in Gohardasht and Qom prisons were executed.

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), said that Khamenei is trying in vain to save his regime from its inevitable overthrow by carrying out executions and killings. The endless bloodshed only intensifies the anger of the Iranian people and the determination of defiant youths. She pointed out that this regime, being the foremost human rights violator in the world today and a disgrace to contemporary humanity, should be rejected from the international community, the case of serious and systematic violations of human rights in Iran must be referred to the Security Council, and its leaders, especially Ali Khamenei, Ebrahim Raisi and Gholam-Hossein Mohseni-Eje’I (Chief Justice), must be brought to justice for four decades of crimes against humanity and genocide.
