Iran's 1988 Massacre

More than 30,000 political prisoners were massacred in Iran in the summer of 1988.
The massacre was carried out on the basis of a fatwa by Khomeini.
The vast majority of the victims were activists of the opposition People's Mojahedin (PMOI, Mujahedin-e Khalq or MEK).
Death Commissions approved all the death sentences.
The perpetrators of the 1988 massacre have never been brought to justice.
On August 9, 2016, an audiotape was published for the first time of Khomeini’s former heir acknowledging that that massacre took place and had been ordered at the highest levels.
It's time for the UN to investigate Iran's 1988 massacre.
