On Saturday, May 15, 2021, the candidates for the Iranian regime’s sham presidential election, such as henchman Ebrahim Raisi.

Ebrahim Raisi is the henchman of the 1988 massacre, the murderer of the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), and one of the worst criminals against humanity.

Ebrahim Raisi was appointed as the Assistant Prosecutor of the Karaj Revolutionary Prosecutor’s Office in 1980, at the age of 19. The following year, under the supervision of the mullah, Ali Quddusi, the regime’s Attorney General, Raisi was appointed as the Prosecutor of Karaj, and shortly thereafter as the prosecutor of Hamedan.

Raisi in 1985, due to his active role in suppressing and killing the (PMOI / MEK Iran), members and supporters, and was appointed as the deputy to Ali Razini, the notorious Revolutionary Court Prosecutor in Tehran, and served as the director of division handling opposition groups.

Raisi in 1988, at the age of 28, Raisi was appointed by Khomeini as a member of the death commission in Tehran which carried out the 1988 massacre of thousands of political prisoners based on Khomeini’s fatwa.

(NCRI) and (PMOI / MEK Iran): Ebrahim Raisi, for those with memories of his role in the past, is hardly the defender of human rights. He was deeply involved in the massacre in 1988, the majority of them were members or supporters of the (PMOI / MEK Iran).

The 1988 massacre

Hossein-Ali Montazeri, Khomeini’s designated successor at the time, speaking with the “death committee” in Tehran, including with Raisi, about 20 days after the start of the killing spree. Montazeri warned them that these executions would be considered the biggest crimes committed by the Islamic Republic.

In that meeting, Hossein-Ali Montazeri questioned them about the execution of pregnant women and 15-year-old girls. It was subsequently exposed that Ebrahim Raisi was the most active and most ruthless member of the committee.

In 2004, during Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi’s tenure as the Judiciary Chief, Raisi was appointed as his first deputy and the head of the General Inspection Organization. Raisi held this position until 2014 during the first term of Sadegh Amoli Larijani as the Judiciary Chief.

The United Nations adopted its 66th resolution condemning the grave and systematic violations of human rights in Iran.
(NCRI) and (PMOI / MEK Iran): Maryam Rajavi highlighted that the most glaring and heinous example of the human rights abuses in Iran is the 1988 massacre of 30,000 defenseless political prisoners [mostly MEK members and supporters] in which the regime’s former and current leaders and agencies have been involved and continue to brazenly defend it.

2009 uprisings in Iran

In the aftermath of the 2009 uprisings in Iran, in an interview with state television on December 27, 2009, Raisi called all protesters as “Mohareb” (enemies of God) who deserve to be executed, and said, “In the case of the MEK organization, anyone who helps the organization of the MEK in any way under any circumstances, because it is an organized movement, the title of Moharebeh applies.”
