Dr Ghassemlou: Twenty years of silence is enough  11.7.2009




July 11, 2009

20 years ago, on 13 July 1989, a legendary Kurdish leader and then the Secretary-general of Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan, Dr. Abdul-Rahman Ghassemlou and two of his associates were killed in an apartment in the outskirts of the Austrian capital Vienna where they were holding secret talks with envoys sent by then Iranian president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani.

In spite of credible evidence on the direct involvement of dispatched diplomat-terrorists of the Islamic regime in this tragedy, then the government of Austria sacrificed justice for her country’s political and commercial interests and allowed the three suspected accomplices who had taken refuge in the Iranian embassy after the 1989 killings to slip out of Austria without ever being questioned by the Austrian authorities.

Recently, new convincing evidences have surfaced on the Iranian regime’s involvement, above all Mahmoud Ahmadinejad,
www.ekurd.net the current regime’s president in the 1989 execution-style attack obtained from the testimony given to the Italian police by a jailed German arms dealer, who said he had supplied Ahmadinejad with weapons in Vienna shortly before Abdul-Rahman Ghassemlou's assassination.

AFP reported that “the German, who made his statement to Italian anti-Mafia officers in 2006, said he was in contact with Iranian intelligence services in 1989 regarding arms deals. Shortly before the killing, he said he delivered in the first week of July 1989 half a dozen light weapons at a meeting at the Iranian embassy in Vienna.”

Furthermore, the Associated Press reported that “Peter Pilz, a top official with Austria’s Green Party

Dr. Abdul-Rahman Ghassemlou and two of his associates were killed in an apartment in the outskirts of the Austrian capital Vienna where they were holding secret talks with envoys sent by then Iranian president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani.

and its spokesman on security said he wants a warrant issued for Ahmadinejad’s arrest, alleging the president-elect “stands under strong suspicion of having been involved” in the killings of Kurdish politician Abdul-Rahman Ghassemlou and two associates by providing weapons to the Iranian commandos who carried out the slaying.”

Austrian Times also reported that “Pilz claimed there had been two Iranian teams involved in the assassinations - a negotiations team and an execution team. Pilz said Ahmadinejad had been responsible for gathering and preparing the weapons used and had been a member of the execution team.”

Nonetheless, the Austrian officials deem these convincing evidences insufficient to kick-off any investigations fearing retaliation from the Iranian government and severing business ties with the regime of Tehran.

We are gathering on MONDAY, July 13, 2009 to pay tribute to a man who paid with his life the price of peace and freedom,
www.ekurd.net but most importantly we will be assembled there to appeal to the Austrian authorities in particular Austria’s Interior Ministry and the Federal Counterterrorism Agency to fully cooperate with any upcoming investigations and provide any classified documents that they have withheld so far pertaining to this case. We demand the Austrian authorities to respect international laws and the independency of the Austrian judiciary and bring the perpetrators of this crime to justice as in the Mykonous trial in Germany in 1997 where the Iranian government’s involvement in the Mykonous murder of 1992 was exposed at the highest level by an independent German court.

Date: Monday, July 13, 2009 - Time: 11:00am - 1:00pm - Location: Austrian Embassy Washington - Street: 3524 International Court NW.
City/Town: Washington, DC.
