In a letter to European Parliament, Iran demands justice for victims of terrorism
Tehran (IP) - The Head of the Human Rights Committee of the Islamic Consultative Assembly, Zohreh Elahian, in a letter to the Head of the European Parliament's Human Rights Subcommittee Maria Arena, demanded justice for victims of terrorism and their families in order to bring the perpetrators to justice.
Ms. Maria Arena, Chair of the European Parliament's Human Rights Subcommittee
As you know, August 21st coincides with the International Day of Remembrance and Tribute to the Victims of Terrorism. Unfortunately, every year many people in the world, especially civilians, women, and children, get victims of terrorist acts.
In the Islamic Republic of Iran, more than 17,000 oppressed Iranian citizens have been victims of terrorist acts and systematic violations of fundamental human rights, including the right to life, security, and good health, by terrorist groups, especially members of the MEK organization.
From ordinary people on the streets, women, and children, to nuclear scientists and high-ranking government and military officials, they have been brutally attacked by the terrorists. Today, unfortunately, most of them continue to conspire against the Iranian people by seeking refuge in European countries.
We expect to see European governments and the European Parliament act in good faith and in adherence to international obligations, and while supporting victims of terrorism and their families, provide them with access to justice and put an end to the impunity of the terrorists and take an effective step in the fight against terrorism by prosecuting the perpetrators of these assassinations who live in their countries.
