Iran's President-elect Defends Himself over 1988 Executions

Iran's President-elect Defends Himself over 1988 Executions

Monday, 21 June 2021 07:00 AM EDT

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Iran's president-elect has called himself “a defender of human rights” after being asked directly about his involvement in the 1988 mass executions of some 5,000 people.

Ebrahim Raisi made the comment Monday in a news conference with journalists, his first since winning Friday's election in a landslide.

Raisi was part of a so-called “death panel” that sentenced political prisoners to death at the end of the 1980s Iran-Iraq war.
