Following the growth of the movement seeking Justice for the victims of 1988 Massacre, during the Iranian regime’s presidential election and the ignominious defeat of Raisi, Khamenei’s favorable candidate who was known as “Ayatollah of Massacre” because of his role in 1988 massacre of political prisoners, the Iranian regime started to destroy the graves of martyrs of 1988 massacre in several cities in order to wipe out the evidences of this crime.
Recently, the Iranian regime has started to abolish graves of martyrs massacred during the summer of 1988. They used machineries to level the ground in the cemetery and destroyed the gravestones and any evidence of such a martyrs’ cemetery.
According to received information from Iran, there were six people involved in this criminal act who were removing the gravestones and were covering it with 10 centimeters of cement and were leveling the ground.
To this point 200 square meters of the cemetery has been covered with cement and the graves of 75 martyrs have been vandalized. The cemetery of the unknown martyrs was 100 meters by 75 meters.
Following photos show the removed and destroyed gravestones and the areas that have been covered with cement.
Previously the Iranian regime had destroyed the PMOI martyrs’ graves in cities of Mashad, Shiraz and … under different excuses.
On June 27, the Iranian Resistance issued a statement in this regard, the statement writes: “The Iranian Resistance calls on all international human rights organizations, especially the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and the Special Rapporteur of the Human Rights Situation in Iran to condemn this inhumane act and take urgent action to prevent the destruction of such evidence of previous mass executions and massacre of political prisoners, especially those of 1988. Iran’s ruling dictators must face justice for their crimes against humanity and 120,000 political executions.”
