London, 26 October – On October 24, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI ) reported on the annual Forum 2000 Conference, which was held in Prague, attended by political and religious leaders, prominent social figures, and human rights defenders from different countries, as well as the delegation of Iran’s Resistance.

The International Forum 2000 Conference began on October 17th and continued until October 19th in the historic Žofín Palace of Prague. “Who are the future leaders? The courage for taking responsibility” was the title and the theme of the conference.

Participants in this conference were such diverse figures as Tibet’s spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama; former ministers of Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia; the famous chess champion Garry Kasparov; and the chairman of the Human Rights Foundation against dictatorships.

Representing the National Council of Resistance of Iran were Parviz Khazai and Hossein Abedini, who are the representatives of NCRI in Nordic countries and England, respectively. The NCRI representatives participate in many sessions, raising the stances of Iran’s Resistance on different issues and emphasizing the importance of the litigation movement that demands a trial for the perpetrators of the Massacre of 1988, as well as the violators of human rights.

Tibet’s spiritual leader, Dalai Lama participated in a conference entitled “the Globalization and Current Challenges”. In a speech at this conference, Parviz Khazai said, ”… the religious fundamentalism has not begun from Syria or elsewhere. It started from Iran when Khomeini established an Islamic regime. We have to support Mrs. Maryam Rajavi who is a Muslim woman that has stood against fundamentalism. We are trying to disclose the real face of the Mullahs’ regime that exploits the Islam wrongfully and unjustly.”

In a seminar devoted to the discussion of despotic regimes, the former Minister of Justice in Canada, Irwin Cotler, referred to the massacre of 1988, stating, “…the massacre of 1988 was carried out by those who are currently in power in Iran including the Minister of Justice, Mostafa Pourmohammadi. That’s why we’re calling for an investigation into the massacre of 1988. On the 1st of September in Canada, we unanimously commemorate the political prisoners and those who have been executed in Iran at that time and that’s why we also have a week entitled, ‘auditing the Iran’s regime’ in order to focus on the internal repressions in Iran.” In this seminar, Hossein Abedini spoke about the need to facilitate the litigation movement, and the importance of bringing the perpetrators of the Massacre of 1988 to trial.
