Iranian MP admits massacring Iraqi POWs during 1980s war
In September 1982 the Iranian opposition unveiled images of massacred handcuffed Iraqi POWs
However, similar to the mullahs’ nuclear project, this crime was buried by the appeasement policy adopted vis-à-vis the inhumane mullahs’ regime in Iran
Nader Ghazipour, a member of the so-called parliament in Iran, has recently admitted to massacring hundreds of Iraqi prisoners of war along with his colleagues.
A group of independent Iraqi media outlets have recently reported of the hatred caused amongst the Iraqi people over the fact that such war criminals continue to enjoy impunity.
The People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran, (PMOI / MEK) first issued a formal statement on 24 September 1982 exposing the massacre of Iraqi POWs by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, along with publishing images of this crime. However, the appeasement policy did not allow perpetrators of these war crimes to be brought to justice; as those behind the massacre of more than 30,000 political prisoners in the summer of 1988 have gone unpunished. A number of these individuals currently have senior posts in the Iranian regime and are members of the Rafsanjani-Rouhani or Khamenei camps.
The time has come for these war crimes, the murder of POWs and terrorist attacks orchestrated abroad by the Iranian regime to be brought before justice, in parallel to the mullahs’ human rights violations and crimes against humanity inside Iran.
