Frankfurt prosecutor reaffirms Tehran regime's role in Lockerbie explosion
-Iranian Resistance calls for an international tribunal to address mullahs' crimes

Remarks on December 20 by Mr. Job Tillman, a Frankfurt prosecutor, that those who paid and pulled the strings for the bomb which blew up Pan Am's Boeing flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, will be found among Iran's mullahs, reaffirm the criminal role played by the religious, terrorist dictatorship ruling Iran in this terrorist crime, as was time and again exposed by the Iranian Resistance.

The mullahs' Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, at the time the regime's President and Hashemi Rafsanjani, then the deputy commander in chief of the Armed Forces, oversaw the planning and execution of this terrorist operation and provide the funds needed to carry it out.

The Iranian Resistance revealed in July 1997 that the explosives used in the bombing of Pan Am 103 were transferred through Frankfurt airport's transit area with the help of Hossein Marvastizadeh, an Intelligence Ministry agent. Marvastizadeh was the chief of security for Iran Air Office in Frankfurt airport in 1988 and enjoyed the complete backing of Talebian, the head of Iran Air Office in Frankfurt. After the explosion, the regime transferred Marvastizadeh to Tehran. He currently heads the airport in the city of Yazd, central Iran.

The Iranian Resistance Welcomes Mr. Tillman's courageous remarks and emphasizes that the placating policies by a number of Western countries, including the US. an Britain, have so far prevented the ruling mullahs from being held accountable for their heinous crimes on the international level, despite undeniable indications and evidence. They are the principal masterminds and sponsors of international terrorism, including the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland.

The National Council of Resistance of Iran calls for the formation of an international tribunal to address the crimes perpetrated by the clerical regime's leaders, including Khamenei, Khatami and Rafsanjani. They are responsible for the execution of 120,000 political prisoners, the deaths of one million people in the unpatriotic war with Iraq, grisly murders of writers and dissidents inside Iran, and hundreds of terrorist operations in Switzerland, Italy, France, Germany, Austria, Lebanon, Palestine, Israel, Argentina, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Algeria, Turkey, Pakistan, Cyprus, etc.
