Iran Regime Diplomat Terrorist to be Tried

The sentencing of a senior Iranian diplomat, Assadollah Assadi, for his involvement in the foiled terrorist attack on a resistance gathering held by the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), in Paris, will enforce long-overdue accountability on the regime.

The Iranian regime attempted to bomb a rally held by the Iranian Resistance, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), in Paris in 2018, but thankfully the European police thwarted this attempt and the Iranian diplomat who planned the attack, as well as the three terrorists he hired, were arrested almost immediately.

In November, Iran’s diplomat-terrorist will be on trial for his crimes and it is vital that he is found guilty and that this serves as a warning for the regime against future terrorism.

After all, it is not new or surprising that an Iranian diplomat was involved in an attempted bombing of the NCRI and MEK Resistance’s political rally by terrorism in the West, it is noteworthy that Assadollah Assadi was incredibly transparent and hands-on, even personally driving the explosives to the terrorists.

And it is at least positive that he is finally seeing criminal charges over it, with European authorities acknowledging the threat of Iranian embassies, which are filled with intelligence agents. Any of them could be planning the next massive terror attack. Although, Assadi’s involvement is especially hard to deny or hide, so this is probably the reason that he is the only Iranian diplomat to ever ace terrorism charges.

Former vice-president of the European Parliament Alejo Vidal-Quadras wrote: ”This is actually a lesson that Western policymakers should have learned a very long time ago. Iranian embassies and consulates have previously been conduits through which Tehran has organized terrorist plots. And not all of them have been thwarted as Assadi’s was.

In the 1980s and 90s, Tehran conducted a series of assassinations of opposition activists such as Kazem Rajavi, who was the National Council of Resistance of Iran’s representative to the United Nations before he was gunned down in traffic near his home in Geneva in 1990. Disgracefully, Tehran faced little real consequence from any of these killings, and thus had little incentive to slow the expansion of its network of terrorist-diplomats.”

He advised that the international community recognizes that this type of attack is not rare for the Iranian regime and that the Belgian court must give him the maximum legal penalty, with European governments issuing new sanctions against the Iranian regime.

Vidal-Quadras wrote: “It is long past time for the regime as a whole to be held accountable for crimes that have gone unpunished because they did not directly target Western nationals… The mullahs´ regime has lived in a bloodbath since its inception. It is time for Western democracies to stop to turn a blind eye on such criminal dictatorship.”

Dr. Vidal stated, “Disgracefully, Tehran faced little real consequence from any of these killings, and thus had little incentive to slow the expansion of its network of terrorist-diplomats.”

While the primary target of Assadi’s terrorism plot was undoubtedly the NCRI’s president-elect Maryam Rajavi, the annual rally attracts upwards of 100,000 attendees and this includes many high-profile international political figures.
