Tiny crowd in Lajevardi's funeral procession underlines intense repugnance at "Butcher of Evin"

Despite widespread mobilization of the clerical regime's suppressive organs and all the propaganda, pressure and threats by the mullahs, the funeral procession for Assadollah Lajevardi, the Butcher of Evin, was attended today by no more than 500 persons, all members of the Revolutionary Guards, the Intelligence Ministry and other repressive agencies of the clerical regime.

Today's big flop came despite all the messages and calls by the entire leadership of the theocratic regime, including mullahs' President Khatami. It highlighted the extent of fear and demoralization of the regime's forces and agents as well as the intense repugnance at the Butcher of Evin.

The punishment on Sunday of one of the most infamous criminals in the second half of the 20th century by Mojahedin's operational units has aroused a tremendous wave of joy and enthusiasm among the Iranian people nationwide.

In the past two days, thousands have called or sent facsimile messages to the offices and centers of the Mojahedin and the Iranian Resistance in the U.S., Europe and the Middle East to express their overwhelming happiness over the punishment of Lajevardi.
