International Prosecution of the Cases against Human Rights Violators in the Islamic Republic

The Senior Legal Advisor of the Iran Transition Council (ITC), Kaveh Mousavi, said in a television interview to Iran Farda, that as soon as we were informed of Hamid Nouri’s presence in Europe (an assistant public prosecutor who reportedly played a key part in the mass execution of political prisoners in Iran in summer 1988), we took our legal actions through the Swedish Prosecution Authority.

He also added that the crimes committed by figures like Hamid Nouri are, in fact, transnational crimes and the murders he committed are not the ordinary ones that could face prosecution only through the Attorney General in Iran.  The crimes and murders he committed are considered among transnational crimes, since they have wounded human conscience and are subject to global supervision as well as the UN Convention against Torture (UNCAT). This treaty is binding, so the Islamic Republic is definitely subject to this treaty due to its nature, even if it has not signed the treaty.

Mr. Mousavi continued that his trial (Nouri’s) is set to begin in the coming months and meanwhile, we are trying to get him convicted of genocide as well.

Furthermore, the Senior Legal Advisor of ITC talked about the case of the Iranian ex-judge, Gholamreza Mansouri (who was reportedly found dead in a hotel located in the Romanian capital). He mentioned that after noticing the Judiciary of the Islamic Republic was about to bring a prosecution against the former judge, Mansouri fled to Germany. In a video statement, he claimed that he was willing to return to Iran, despite the fact that he was seeking to take his family out of the country.

“When a number of Mansouri’s victims got in touch with me and testified against him, we took legal actions in order to have him arrested and extradited to Germany, according to some of the testimonies we got. Also, the Islamic Republic had requested the help of Interpol in securing his arrest at the same time.

Apparently, he was the only guest in the hotel he was staying at. The fugitive judge had packed his stuff and checked out of the hotel before he was murdered. He had been granted permission to change his hotel by Romanian prosecutors. Thus, all the evidence suggest that he did not commit suicide but was killed,” pointed out Kaveh Mousavi.
