In Seach of Justice Report Confirms 1988 Massacre

The International Committee’s In Search of Justice report, released August 16, is titled Horrifying Audio File of Top Iran Official Confirms the 1988 Massacre of Political Prisoners.”

The 21-page report about the 1988 massacre of political prisoners in Iran, refers to the recent publication of a shocking audio recording from Hossein-Ali Montazeri, who was the designated successor to the Iranian regime's Supreme Leader Khomeini. That is, until in the midst of the mass execution of political prisoners in the summer of 1988, when Montazeri confronted his fellow leaders, pleading for moderation.  The audio has revealed a further dimension of this horrific crime and underscores the need to investigate this atrocity, the Brussels-based ISJ has said.

At least 30,000 political prisoners, mainly from the main opposition group People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK), were executed over a period of only a few months in the summer of 1988.

The same officials who were in charge of the 1988 massacre are still active in the current regime, and are involved in the suppression and destruction of Iranian society, pointed out The ISJ.
