NCR condemns execution of Mohammad Assadi

The National Council of Resistance condemns the execution of Mr. Mohammad Assadi, Attorney at law, by the mullahs' religious, terrorist dictatorship. The NCR draws the attention of all international human rights organizations to the continuation of the flagrant violations of human rights in Iran.

Mr. Assadi had been imprisoned since 1993 and was executed in Tehran a few days ago. He had also been arrested several times before by the regime's suppressive forces.

The execution of Mohammad Assadi in the second week of Khatami's presidency is yet another indication that change and reform are but a mirage in this medieval dictatorship. Diplomatic and economic ties with the mullahs' regime will only embolden them in their pursuit of repression and export of terrorism.
