Iranian Resistance persists on legal pursuit of clerical regime's leaders in Germany

Despite the German Federal Prosecutor's decision to forgo initiating investigation against the clerical regime's leaders due to "public interests", Mr. Massoud Rajavi, President of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, declared that the Iranian Resistance was persisting in the legal pursuit in Germany of the leaders of the mullahs' regime.

Mr. Rajavi said: The decision runs counter to the ruling by the Berlin Court, to the EU decisions in Luxembourg, and to the Bundestag's April 18 resolution. In that resolution, the elected representatives of the people of Germany had called on the government to revise its approach towards a regime whose "highest ranking officials" were involved in terrorism.

Referring to the verdict of the Court of Berlin and the continuing legal pursuit of the regime's Intelligence Minister and three members of his ministry, the NCR President urged the German Federal Prosecutor to initiate formal proceedings against Khamenei, Rafsanjani, and Velayati, as established principals behind terrorist crimes, on German soil among others.

Stressing the Iranian Resistance's demand for the prosecution of the leaders of the mullahs' regime in an international tribunal, Mr. Rajavi called on the people of Germany and their dignified representatives in the Parliament, all human rights activists, intellectuals and peace advocates in Germany to call on their government to go after the mullahs' Leader, President and Foreign Minister and not allow justice and human rights principles be sacrificed for political and economic interests.
