Remarks by Giulio Terzi–Call for Justice Summit, July 19, 2020

Giulio Terzi , Former Foreign Affairs Minister of Italy joined the Online Free Iran Global Summit—day 2. In his remarks, Mr. Vidal-Quadras said, “The time of impunity is over. In Iran, regime change would be the dawn of a new era for human rights and freedom.”

In July 1988, the Iranian religious fascism’s founder and the first supreme leader Ruhollah Khomeini issued a fatwa ordering the execution of imprisoned opponents, including those who had already been tried and were serving their prison terms. This was the beginning of what turned out to be the biggest massacre of political prisoners since World War II.

Following the decree, some 30,000 political prisoners were extra-judicially executed within several months. Today, thanks to the initiative of Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), known as “Call for Justice” many legal and international bodies have joined the families of victims in search of justice.

Here is the speech of Mr. Giulio Terzi:

President-elect Maryam Rajavi, the crimes that the Ayatollah’s regime perpetrates against its own people, the starving of an entire nation for the purpose of eliminating opposition, the support to fanatic proxies to dominate and frighten the region, and the genocidal aggression and terrorism by IRGC, make Iran the number one worst terrorist state. These are the reasons why action is needed. Justice and democracy will be very soon the reality for your country with the freedom to vote. A widely popular political and moral force has grown and even strengthened during the present crisis. The regime is very frightened. The movement is led by Madame Rajavi and inspired by ten-point plan for democracy in Iran. Your movement is invincible because it’s driven by the example of hundreds of thousands of heroes who died for freedom and democracy in Iran. We all owe to them so much.

An open wound is still bleeding after 40 years since 24th of April 1990, Iran’s most renowned human rights activist, Ambassador Kazem Rajavi was brutally murdered in Geneva. The killers, although officially tried, have still not been punished. That happened also for many other terrorist attacks commanded by the regime on European soil. The regime’s embassies, which act as launching pads for terrorists, must be closed immediately.

Still worse, no one has ever been held accountable for the 1988 Massacre, even as a growing number of Iranian officials have acknowledged their role as perpetrators. One of them sits at the top of the judiciary, and another is minister of justice.

The time of impunity is over. In Iran, regime change would be the dawn of a new era for human rights and freedom. A wake-up call came last May from the U.S. House of Representatives with its full support to the Iranians for a democratic, secular, and non-nuclear Iran. That must also become the European Union’s firm commitment.
