War Crimes from World War II are still being investigated (See the Australian written by David Charter the Times-UK) and yet no one has lifted a hand to find out the details and the individuals behind these crimes against humanity in 1988.

Amnesty International issued a statement in 2008 saying: “The authorization for the executions was ordered by the highest levels of the Iranian leadership … Amnesty International believes that these executions are crimes against humanity… The executions of 1988 must be subject of an impartial and independent investigation, and all those who were responsible be brought to justice …”. Report of Amnesty International on the Massacre of 1988, From the book: Amnesty International, IRAN – VIOLATIONS OF HUMAN RIGHTS 1987-1990

NCRI and their leadership, President-Elect, Maryam Rajavi near the 25th Anniversary of these incidents remind Iranians all over the world that no one has been held accountable for these deaths yet.

NCRI, a secular organization operating out of Paris, France, continues to be a thorn in the side of the existing Iranian Government. Their opposition of the current Iranian leadership is widely accepted as the most potent and powerful anti regime group operating outside of Iran.
