OUTLAW REGIME: A CHRONICLE OF IRAN’S DESTRUCTIVE ACTIVITIES
It is always my pleasure to address the International Liberty Association and it is a particular pleasure for me to be here today with my great friend and colleague Paulo Casaca. The ILA’s long-standing fight against human rights abuse in Iran and the wider Middle East is a noble cause and one that both Paulo and I have dedicated our political careers to support.
The 1988 Massacre of 30,000 Political Prisoners
It is exactly thirty years since the coordinated massacre of political prisoners began in Iran. The UN now has irrefutable evidence of the summary execution of more than 30,000 supporters of the PMOI/MEK by the Iranian regime in the summer of 1988. They have enough evidence to present to the International Criminal Court who could now issue indictments against those responsible, many of whom still hold positions of power inside the Iranian regime.

IRAN UPRISING SOUNDS DEATH-KNELL FOR OPPRESSIVE REGIME
Sisters and Brothers,
There are rumours that Hassan Rouhani may be planning another visit to Europe. Rouhani is not welcome here in the West. We do not roll out the red carpet for criminals and murderers. Rouhani is not the ‘moderate’ the West believes him to be. He was Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Iranian regime’s armed forces at the time of the 1988 massacre of 30,000 political prisoners and he undoubtedly was complicit in that atrocity.
Conference – The European Parliament, Brussels
