A group of young Kurdish writers in Iran in a letter commemorated the memory of thirty thousand political prisoners who were executed in the summer of 1988 in Iran. They called on the UN Secretary General to refer the dossier of the Iranian regime human rights violations particularly the dossier of the 1988 massacre to international courts.
The following is the full text of the letter:
Let’s light 30 candles in honor of 30,000 executed compatriots...
Honorable Secretary General of the United Nations, you may not understand the suffering that the execution and massacre of 30,000 innocent fellow countrymen in Iran has inflicted on us and the wounds it has left in our hearts. And perhaps you don’t realize why the murderers and assassins who have executed 30,000 of our compatriots are still ruling the country and are at the highest levels of the government, and like Mullah Pour-Mohammadi (current Justice Minister in Rouhani’s government) are proud of the massacre. Yes, these are the same killers and criminals who still freely decide about the current issues and the fate of our homeland.
We have complaints against them and present our complaints to the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran because today the only way to deal with these executioners and rulers is through this campaign and this organization and international pressures. So, you should not sit silent either, you should support tens of thousands of innocents who were killed by these bloodthirsty slayers and prosecute the murderers of Iranian people and refer them to International tribunals to face justice.
