Tuesday, May 10, 2022: The Antwerp Court in Belgium announced the verdict of three accomplices of the Iranian regime’s terrorist-diplomat Asadollah Assadi. An international conference held in this regard by the National Council of Resistance of Iran(NCRI).
A group of prominent dignitaries from the U.S. and Europe attended and spoke at the conference online.
The keynote speaker at the conference was Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran(NCRI).
Robert Toricelli, U.S. Senator (1997-2003), addressed at the conference.
The following is an excerpt from Senator Toricelli’s speech at the conference:
The int’l community needs to take note that justice is incomplete. The same diplomatic core that planned to plant a bomb in Paris exists. They still sit at the negotiating table with the United States and other powers. There is no justice without holding accountable the very regime that would’ve taken our lives. We call on Europe to reconsider. Do they want embassies in their countries that would have taken the lives of their citizens and exploded a bomb in Europe?
Even if you reach an accord, what credibility could it have? I recognize that there is a limited capacity in the world with the number of crises that can happen simultaneously. But the problems with the regime in Tehran are rising. A terrorist government abusing people in Asia is just as important as one in European.
The terrorist elements of that regime must remain on the terrorist list. Europe must take note of what happened here today. The integrity of the court and prosecutors needs to be matched by governments. For all of us, it’s important to realize that something else could have happened here. The Iranian government could have chosen many targets. But it chose one. The MEK and Mrs. Rajavi.
They struck at us and her for a reason. We are the threat. She is the future. All of us will redouble our efforts and our commitment, and call on our governments to take a stand.
