An international conference took place on August 21st at the headquarters of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), located near Paris. The primary focus of the conference was to shed light on the horrific massacre of 30,000 political prisoners during the summer of 1988 by the mullahs’ regime.

Distinguished guests and speakers, among them Ms. Oleksandra Matviichuk, a recipient of the 2022 Nobel Peace Prize and a human rights attorney from Ukraine, were in attendance at this significant event.

Oleksandra Matviichuk, Nobel Peace Prize laureate in 2022 from Ukraine: The UN must investigate Iran’s 1988 massacre

The full speech of Ms. Oleksandra Matviichuk’s speech follows:

“35 years ago, the Iranian regime executed thousands and thousands of people. The international community is still discussing how many people were killed, but what is obvious is that it is a crime against humanity, which has no statute of limitations. And the problem is that even after 35 years, the relatives of victims are still waiting for justice.

This impunity in the past has clear consequences in the present. The current Iranian regime expands repressions and persecutes even girls in schools. The impunity has a global impact, and no surprise that the Iranian regime supports the Russian war against Ukraine.

I live in Kyiv, and my native city, like thousands of other Ukrainian cities, are constantly being shelled by Iranian drones. What I want to tell with this example is that if authoritarian regimes cooperate with each other, we as a people have to support the struggle for justice and for freedom of each other even more.

And that is why I express my sincere solidarity with Iranian people and support the idea of creation of a UN Commission on Inquiry to reveal the truth of what happened in 1988 and to bring perpetrators to justice.”
