You are all right to say that the international community must no longer tolerate this. And that is why I am happy to promise you my support as a member of the parliament.
Together with my colleagues I will try to have an impact in Iran, we must do everything we can so that this inhuman practice of execution finally comes to an end and that the prisoners are freed.
What we have seen with Navid Afkari must not be repeated under any circumstances. And if the Iranian terrorist regime of the mullahs does not finally turn around and end this practice, then I believe the international community will have to take even tougher measures against the Iranian regime.
