I’m extremely honored to be able to take the floor. I was so extremely honored to recall that I have defended NCRI and this team’s movement for about 20 years.

It has been a long story of battle and friendly moments between my team and all the representatives of NCRI. Let’s say without any excess of confidence and excessive pride that for the moment, we won the battle, and we went capacity to obtain the only complete dismissal charged in all the proceedings, which were initiated in France, which has been denounced by the main political underground.

Despite the continuous efforts of Iranian regime to put the pressure on French authorities, despite continuous efforts of Iranian regime to criminalize the Iranian opposition, and especially the NCRI, with all our fine lawyers, fine colleagues to obtain a definitive deeds of the registration of NCRI in the terrorist list. So, it’s still a main pride for me to represent specific parts within a couple of weeks in the city. I do not underestimate the historical, political, symbolical importance of this unprecedented trial for two reasons.

One, the exceptional vote plan, which could have been devastating for the numbers of oppression and unprecedented also because we know, thanks to the Belgium prosecutor, that the direct implication of Iranian states in this awful disgusting crime is now established. 

So, in a couple of weeks, we will be there with all our determination to defend… who is my friend, and we will be there also to assure that the judge wonders decisions that reflects the seriousness of the crime and fairly establish, as it is a case to direct implication of the Iranian authorities. For everyone in Europe and abroad, it couldn’t be clear that close to the four indicted with six the Iranian regime itself, the Iranian regime will be at the main scrutiny of the judge, of the lawyers, of the prosecution.

And we’re absolutely sure that as it is clearly indispensable, that diplomats acted as a diplomat representing the states. So, just an unnecessary confirmation to my friend, of NCRI, I will be there with all the determination and competence. I’m able to mobilize and I will mobilize them.
