Videos Appear to Defend Raisi’s Role in 1988 Massacre

Ebrahim Raisi is one of the six candidates approved by the Iranian Guardian Council to stand in Iran’s presidential election on May 19th. He is seen as the answer to current President Hassan Rouhani’s economy policies that focus on foreign investment, versus amore self-reliant economic path for Iran. His policies also seem to align him more with the Supreme Leader, making Rouhani’s position more precarious than previously.

Still there are those who argue that Raisi’s candidacy was out of line, based on his history of human rights violations, including his role on the death committee. Those critics are being answered by videos that have begun to appear online, defending Raisi’s role in the 1988 massacre of political prisoners, primarily those of the PMOI.

The videos were recently published without clear indications of who or what organization produced them. However, some have been posted by Raisi’s official campaign page on the Telegram messaging application, which is widely used in Iran.

The head of Iran’s wealthy Astan Quds Razavi religious and business conglomerate, Raisi is seen as the main rival to Rouhani. In 1988, as the deputy prosecutor of Tehran, Raisi was appointed by the founder of the Islamic Republic, the late Ruhollah Khomeini, to the “Death Committee”, which implemented the executions of thousands of political

prisoners who had already been tried and sentenced.
