On 6th December, MEPs and political figures discussed several issues relating to Iran, in particular its human rights record.
MEP and President of the Friends of a Free Iran (FOFI) group Gérard Deprez spoke about Iran’s alarming execution rate and emphasised that the situation has shown no signs of improvement over the course of more than three decades. He emphasised the importance of ensuring that the Iranian regime is held accountable for the crimes it has committed, especially the 1988 massacre that is classed as one of the worst crimes in modern history. Deprez pointed out that the Iranian regime will not change.
