EU Still Siding with the "World's Worst Human Rights Abuser"
Despite an international outcry, Iran's theocratic establishment on September 12 defiantly executed wrestling champion Navid Afkari, an innocent protester who was apparently tortured into a false confession. His execution was clearly carried out in a hurried manner and he was even denied a last visit from his family.
The European Union, in empowering a regime that is
torturing and executing protesters and political prisoners, is making itself
complicit in these crimes against humanity. Instead, the EU needs immediately to
join the US in putting pressure on the mullahs and holding them accountable.
