The trial of Hamid Noury, one of the executioners of the 1988 massacre, took place in three days 10-12 November of the last week, and it continues this week on Monday through Thursday, November 15-18, 2021, in Durrës court, Albania.
This was the 40th trial session of the henchman Hamid Noury one of the executioners of 30,000 political prisoners in the 1988 massacre in Iran’s regime prisons across the country.
In the previous days, the MEK members and former political prisoners Mohammad Zand, Majid Sahib Jam, Asghar Mehdizadeh, Akbar Samadi and Mahmoud Royaei appeared in court as plaintiffs and testified about the 1988 massacre of political prisoners in Gohardasht Prison and the role of the executioner Hamid Noury in the massacre.
At 8 am on November 17, 2021, the hearing of the testimony of MEK member Hossein Farsi began in the court of the executioner Hamid Noury, in Durrës, Albania.
In Wednesday’s session, Hossein Farsi, a former political prisoner who spent 12 years in Iran’s prison for supporting the MEK, testified on the atrocities in the regime’s horrific prisons.
At the beginning of the hearing, Mr. Kenneth Lewis, the plaintiffs’ lawyer, informed the court that he was donating a replica of Gohardasht Prison to the court.
First, Ms. Gita Huding, Hossein Farsi’s lawyer, introduced him and his prison records and the prisons he had been in. Ms. Gita said that Hossein Farsi had written his observations in prison in a book entitled “A Galaxy of Stars ”, which is one of the documents in the case.
During Iran’s 1988 massacre, Farsi was taken to the “Death Corridor” four times and faced the “Death Commission” twice. During this period, he saw Hamid Noury several times, as he played an active role in taking prisoners for execution.
The “Death Commission” was acting on the direct orders of the regime’s then supreme leader Ruhollah Khomeini, who had issued a fatwa that stated anyone who continues to support the MEK is an enemy of God and deserves to die.
While in the Death Corridor, Farsi met several prisoners who said they went to the Death Commission and presented themselves as supporters of the MEK. They were all executed. “Hamid Abbasi and two or three other guards guided the prisoners to the Death Hall.”
One night, prison guards entered Farsi’s cell and began him, demanding that he insult Iran opposition MEK leaders. Prison guards told him he will be executed after informing Farsi that they had executed his brother, Hassan, in Tehran’s Evin prison.
Farsi was taken to the “Death Corridor”. Around noon, Hamid Noury and two other guards came and read the names of around 20 people. “When he finished reading the names, he laughed… And then took them to the [Death Hall],” Farsi added.
