Kimmo Sasi, Finnish MP since 1983 addressed an online global conference on the conviction of Iran’s diplomat-terrorist Assadollah Assadi by a Belgian court for attempting to bomb the 2018 Free Iran gathering in Paris.
On February 4, 2021, simultaneous with the court ruling against the Iranian regime’s diplomat-terrorist, Assadollah Assadi, and his accomplices in Antwerp, Belgium, a global online conference was held, where Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and dozens of prominent figures from various European countries, the United States and Canada, joined thousands of Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK/PMOI) members based in Ashraf-3 (Albania) as well as the supporters of the Iranian Resistance worldwide.
The Belgian court rejected Assadollah Assadi’s claim of diplomatic immunity and sentenced him to 20 years in prison. The three intelligence agents, Nasimeh Naami, Mehrdad Arefani, and Amir Saadouni, were sentenced to 18, 17, and 15 years in prison, respectively. Their Belgian citizenships was also revoked.
Kimmo Sasi, Finnish MP since 1983
As we all know, … court in Antwerp, Belgium has given its verdict. And now, it’s proven that Iranian regimes diplomat Assadollah Assadi and his three paid terrorists tried to murder thousands of people in the opposition gathering in Paris 2018.
I was one of those attending in that meeting as an international supporter for democracy, peace, and human rights in Iran and supporting Mrs. Rajavi’s movement. It has now been proven that there has been an action of terrorism and state terrorism.
We have now our diplomat who has brought bombing material from Iran to the European Union soil. I must say, this is a great shame for the Iranian government. It means that now, there has been a target that is peace-loving, human rights people in the Iranian opposition that should be defended by all international organizations.
Therefore, I, as former minister for European affairs in Finland, urge the European Union foreign ministers in their next meeting, first, to condemn the Iran regime’s terrorist action. Second, go through all the embassies in the European Union countries and guarantee that there is no person that could take action in a terrorist sense.
Then, the foreign ministers must list all Iranian regime organizations that are responsible of this act of terrorism in Europe. And especially, they’ll have to study the role of
Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps in this case and it would be important with that organization on the terrorist place in the European Union. And then, all those persons who have been attending this action, the European Union should levy personal sanctions on them, that they really feel the pain of what they have done against human rights.
I think, now, the European Union and especially the Prime Ministers of the European Union, have to show how serious they are in fighting for human rights and protecting the most important human right, that is the right to life.
Now, this must be the starting point to the final fight for democracy and human rights, according to Mrs. Rajavi’s Ten Point Plan to get peace and human rights in Iran. Thank you so much.
