Tehran, IRNA – The secretary-general of the High Council for Human Rights of the Islamic Republic of Iran says public defenders will soon be appointed to represent members of the Mujahedin-e-Khalq Organization (MKO) terrorist group at the Tehran criminal court.
“Although the deadline for appointing lawyers has passed, none have been appointed. As a result, according to Article 384 of the Criminal Code, the judge will issue an order to appoint public defenders for the defendants in the coming days,” Kazem Gharibabadi said on Wednesday, which marks National Anti-terrorism Day.
“We believe that the world must dispose of terrorist groups, including the MKO terrorist group, and in this way, we will use all necessary measures to prosecute the members of this terrorist group,” Gharibabadi added.
He added that the world must eliminate terrorist groups, including the MKO, and that all necessary measures will be taken to prosecute its members.
