International Call to Prosecute Ebrahim Raisi
On June 18, 2021, Ebrahim Raisi was brought to power through sham elections in Iran.
Dubbed, “the Butcher”, Raisi has functioned within the Judiciary in different positions, since its inception in 1979, when he was only 19 years old, with his latest post, serving as Iran’s Judiciary Chief.
But he is mostly recognized for his role in the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in the summer of 1988, serving as one of the four members of the ‘death commission’ overlooking execution in Tehran.
But Raisi’s crimes are not limited to the 1980’s, as head of the Judiciary, Raisi presided over the crackdown of nationwide protests in November 2019 and oversaw the execution and torture of detainees in the aftermath.
Today we call on the international community to prosecute Raisi.

FREE IRAN 2021
52 members of Parliament, Senators and Belgian mayors from most of the political parties (CD&V, N-va, Vooruit, Open vld, MR, PS, DéFi, cdH, Ecolo), ask the Belgian government, and the EU as well as the community international support for the Iranian people in their fight for freedom. While declaring that the 10-point plan of the President-elect of the NCRI, Ms. Maryam Rajavi, deserves the support of the international community. In view of the explosive situation in Iranian society, the fact that we are currently witnessing the nuclear negotiation, which is taking place simultaneously with the “world summit for a free Iran 2021”, this support initiative is both timely and important.
Belgian delegation to this event involves representatives from various political parties who sent their message of support to the conference in support of maryam rajavi’s 10-point plan for a free, democratic and secular iran.
Does EU sacrifice its values of human rights and democracy to negotiate with the new government in Iran?
The illusion of moderation in Iranian regime has gone away. Now, Raisi is the president and new challenges are added to be solved between Iran and the international community. Before the appointment of Raisi, nuclear deal, ballistic missile program, regional destabilization, and terrorism were big issues for the US and EU that are still trying to negotiate about them with the Iranian regime. However, mullahs are not willing to discuss something more than nuclear deal. On the other hand, with the presence of Raisi as the president of the Iranian regime human rights get the grandstand, writes Ali Bagheri, energy engineer and activist for human rights and democracy in Iran.

Maximum Penalty For The Iranian Diplomat Terrorist In Antwerp Court, A Great Victory For The Iranian Resistance Movement
On Juan 30, 2018 a Iranian-Belgian couple, Amir Sadouni and Nasimeh Naami, were arrested while carrying a 500g TATP bomb in their Mercedes. Their destination was the annual gathering of the Iranian resistance in Paris. In the afternoon, another terrorist, Mehrdad Arefani was arrested in the parking lot of the event. The day after, Iranian diplomat, Asadullah Asadi was arrested in Germany in his way back to Vienna, where he was serving as third councilor for the Iranian regime embassy.
Assadollah Assadi was the operational mastermind behind the attack. He relied on his diplomatic immunity, but according to the court he only enjoyed this in Austria, where he was accredited at the time. Assadi also did not engage in diplomatic activities, but ran a network of informants and mercenaries from the Iranian embassy in Vienna, which included his three co-defendants. In exchange for compensation, they had to obtain information about the Belgian branch of the MEK and pass it on to him.
