IOPHR Statement regarding the Transfer of the Presidency to a person who has openly committed Crimes Against Humanity

Shabtabnews – In a statement IOPHR stated : “Ali Khamenei, the self-proclaimed leader and religious dictator of Iran, last week in a scandalous show, through a sham of an election handed over the presidency of Iran to Ebrahim Raeisi, a man who has committed crimes against humanity.”

The statement continued by stating : “Ebrahim Raeisi, known as the perpetrator of a crime against humanity, is accused of participating in the execution of nearly 50,000 innocent Iranian citizens, many of whom were in their youth or adolescence years, when they were executed by Raeisi. The appointment of an inhumane criminal as the Iranian President by Ali Khamenei is clearly aimed at creating a boneyard in Iranian society for the transfer of dictatorship.

“Ebrahim Raisi, the well-known executioner of the Iranian people, was appointed to the presidency by the religious dictator of Iran, while according to the published statistics and the testimony of eyewitnesses, as well as the published videos and photos, the polling stations were almost completely empty of voters. As according to verifiable reports less than 8% of Iranian citizens participated in the presidential elections. An election in which almost all candidates who did not approve the dictatorship of Ali Khamenei were eliminated, leaving only the candidates who supported Ali Khamenei, the religious dictator of Iran. Thus, the votes for Ebrahim Raisi, represented less than 3% of the votes of the Iranian people.”

Moreover, the statement declared that: “by staying away from the polls of the June 18, 2021 election, the Iranian people gave a firm “no” to the religious dictatorship and the rule of oppression and terror through a joint and coordinated boycott of the election. Thereby completely delegitimizing the inhuman ruling regime of Iran.  Furthermore, the false reports, fake videos and photos published in the state media were the best evidence of the non-participation of the majority of Iranians in the recent election show.”

Furthermore, IOPHR called ” on all free and democratic governments in the world, especially the members of the European Union, to take action in light of the recent election results that prove the illegitimacy of the dictatorship in Iran, by ceasing all economic interaction with Iran, including the reduction of their diplomatic relations to the lowest possible level. As such an action, will no doubt show the Iranian people that EU has respected their brave act of defiance against the Iranian regime, and supports their attempts to free themselves from the dictatorship that is currently ruling Iran.” And warned that “that any agreement with the dictatorship in Iran that does not guarantee the Iranian regime’s compliance with international human rights standards, will not only be seen as an act of disrespect of the Iranian people’s brave decision to boycott the recent elections, but will also lack any legal validity. Especially, as the results of the recent election have shown that the current Iranian regime has no legitimacy nor approval of its citizens.”
