Reported by PMOI/MEK
Oct. 11, 2018 - Asadollah Assadi, a diplomat-terrorist of the Iranian regime who was extradited from Germany to Belgium on Tuesday, was arraigned on Wednesday in a Belgian court. He and three other agents of the Iranian regime’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) are now facing terrorism charges.
Assadi was based in Vienna and is now facing charges of intending to bomb a rally held by the Iranian opposition People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) in Paris back in June, according to EuroNews.
Two other suspects were arrested in Belgium carrying 500 grams of TATP explosives. The fourth suspect was arrested in France and later handed over to Belgium.
Last week, the French government froze assets belonging to the MOIS and two Iranian regime agents involved with the plot aiming to target the PMOI/MEK rally in Paris.
In response, the Iranian regime’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Ghassemi denied all charges raised against Tehran in the Paris bombing plot and demanded the immediate release of the regime’s diplomat.
The Iranian opposition coalition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) has welcomed the German court’s decision to extradite Assadi. The NCRI emphasizes the necessity to accelerate the judiciary measures in the Iranian regime’s largest state-sponsored terrorism case in Europe and its operational commander, Asadollah Assadi.
On October 1st, the high court in the state of Bamberg, Germany, approved Assadi’s extradition. The court statement reads in part: “All the conditions have been met and there are no obstacle before extradition.”
The accused cannot “cite diplomatic immunity” and “the Bamberg public prosecutor’s office will see through the remaining judicial process.”
As a result, the Iranian regime has failed in their measures to have their diplomat terrorist flee justice after planning and organizing a major bombing plot seeking to target an enormous rally attended by tens of thousands of people on June 30th in Paris.
Ever since Assadi was first arrested on July 1st in Germany, the mullahs’ regime has resorted to threats, pressures and various offers to European countries to have him returned to Austria and, of course, inevitably Iran.
Assadi has in the past three decades played a senior role in the Iranian regime’s assassinations, espionage, and killings abroad. From ten years ago, the PMOI/MEK had unveiled his criminal and terrorist past.
The most senior officials in the Iranian regime were involved in the decision behind this bomb plot. The regime’s Supreme National Security Council, chaired by Iranian regime President Hassan Rouhani, and attended by Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, decided on this measure. Iranian regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei approved the plot and gave the final green light.
Measures by the Iranian regime, and their lobbies and allies to accuse “rogue” elements inside the regime to relieve Khamenei and Rouhani of any responsibility is so utterly baseless that even the most basic investigation proves their lies.
As the Iranian people’s uprising began back in December/January, the mullahs’ regime believes the only path forward guaranteeing their rule lies in intensifying domestic crackdown and exporting terrorism abroad.
Two plots targeting the PMOI/MEK, in Albania back in March and the mentioned Paris rally in June, along with the arrest of two MOIS agents in the United States in August after gathering information about the PMOI/MEK, all indicate how this regime feels threatened by this opposition organization and considers it to be its sole alternative.
