Michał Kamiński Condemns Iran Regime’s Use of the Death Penalty – October 8, 2020

Michał Kamiński, Polish MP and former Chair of the ECR group in the European Parliament (2009-2011), addressed an online event in Germany on October 8, 2020, to draw attention to the human rights abuses in Iran.

Gathering in Berlin on the World Day Against the Death Penalty. The Online Conference Marking World Day Against the Death Penalty.
Dozens of German MPs and dignitaries joined an online conference.

The conference was under the title, Iran: Executions Means of Keeping Power, Stop Massacre of Protesters, The European Duty.

The event was hosted by the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), in which participants strongly condemned the mullahs’ increase in human rights violations.

The event was attended by cross-party Members of Germany’s Bundestag (parliament) and European dignitaries.

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran(NCRI), was the keynote speaker at this conference.

The panelists urged the European Union to end its policy of appeasement toward the regime and support the Iranian people’s desire for a free and democratic country.

The supporters of the NCRI and the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK) also gathered in front of the “Reichstag” building in Berlin at the same time to protest against the recent executions in Iran, demanding the EU stand with the Iranian people and their Resistance in the struggle for freedom and to end the policy of appeasement toward the ruling regime in Iran.

Unfortunately, recent reports from Amnesty International and many eyewitnesses are suggesting that the current regime in Iran is using the pandemic and the current situation as a cover for strengthening their actions against the opposition.

That’s why it’s so important to repeat today the very important part of Madam Rajavi’s program for the new Iran, which is stated in the ten-point-plan, that there is a strong opposition against the death penalty. One thing which is obviously connecting the current regime of the mullahs with the previous regime of the Shah, and that is the death penalty is used widely against political opponents. 

I am so happy that our friends from Iran are very clear about it, that the future democratic Iran will not repeat the policies of previous regimes. And the new free and democratic Iran will be free of the death penalty.
