Iran slams European Parliament for hosting MKO ringleader
Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson condemned the European Parliament for hosting the ringleader of the MKO terror group.
The spokesperson for Iran’s Foreign Ministry condemned the European Parliament for hosting the leader of the Mujahedin-e-Khalq Organization (MKO) terror group, which has murdered over 17,000 Iranian citizens.
“Despite EP human rights slogans, it’s regrettable some of its members turn a blind eye to the dark record of those who killed over 17000 Iranian kids, women, men, statesmen and members of parliament and hosted the ringleader of terror outfit MEK," Nasser Kanaani tweeted on Tuesday.

He said the move is contrary to the European Parliament's human rights slogans. “What does Human Rights have to do with supporting terrorists?” the spokesperson asked.
The terror group's leader, Maryam Rajavi, addressed a gathering on Wednesday, titled Perspective of Change and European Union Policy, in the European Parliament to discuss the foreign-backed riots in Iran and the responsibilities of the European Union.

Of course, the people of Iran have boycotted the clerical regime forever and seek to overthrow them as soon as possible.
Foreign-backed riots broke out in Iran in mid-September after the death of 22-year-old Iranian woman Mahsa Amini, who fainted at a police station in the capital Tehran and was pronounced dead three days later at the hospital.
An official report by Iran’s Legal Medicine Organization concluded that Amini’s death was caused by illness rather than alleged blows to the head or other vital body organs.

Later after the riots began to take off, the Iranian Intelligence Ministry announced in a statement that the major elements behind the riots were largely foreign citizens, members of the anti-Iran terrorist Mujahedin-e-Khalq Organization (MKO), which is based in Albania, and individuals working with other anti-revolution terror outfits.
The Iranian Intelligence Ministry underlined that 49 MKO terrorists had been arrested for actively propagating fake news, inciting the rioters to organize acts of terror and destruction, directing slogans, and being present on the streets to damage public property.
