Friday April 7, 2006 (Stop Fundamentalism) - a Swiss judge ordered an international arrest warrant for one of the most notorious Iranian terrorists known, the former head of Iranâ€™s secret police, Ali Fallahian, for ordering the assassination of a prominent Iranian dissident 15 years ago in Switzerland.
The warrant demands the arrest of Ali Fallahian on grounds he "decided and ordered the execution of Kazem Rajavi.â€ Rajavi, a prominent Human Right activist, was shot to death near his suburban Geneva home in 1990. He had obtained political asylum in Switzerland in 1973.
Iranian Intelligence Ministry agents have been behind the slayings of a number of dissidents abroad especially during Fallahian's eight-year tenure as intelligence chief.
German authorities issued a warrant for Fallahian in March 1996 for allegedly ordering the killing of four Iranian dissidents in Berlin, but there has never been a report of his being arrested.
