Steve Cohen, a member of the US Congress from Memphis, the chairman of the Constitutional and Civil Rights Subcommittee on the Judiciary Committee, called for an investigation into the role of executioner Ebrahim Raisi in the execution of thousands of political prisoners in 1967.
Steve Cohen tweeted:
“Iran’s new president #EbrahimRaisi participated in the 1988 massacre of political opponents, journalists and anyone who dared oppose him. I am proud to cosponsor H.Res.118 calling for an international investigation into his crimes. The Iranian people deserve better!”
