Iran's human rights chief:

Tehran (IP) - The secretary of Iran's High Council for Human Rights stressed the use of the capacities of the UN and other international human rights bodies to pursue litigation and prosecution of those who either assassinated Mohsen Fakhrizadeh or issued the order.

Iran Press/Iran News: Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, head of the Research and Innovation Organization of the Ministry of Defense, was martyred in a terrorist attack around Tehran on Friday evening. 

On Sunday, Ali Bagheri-Kani stated that when the Western countries saw that sanctions did not make the Iranian nation surrender, they resorted to committing such crimes as terrorist attacks.

Emphasizing that from the West's view, assassination is a complement to the project of sanctions and punishment of a nation that did not succumb to sanctions, Bagheri said the assassination of Fakhrizadeh is not the punishment of a single person but the punishment of a nation. The crime of the Iranian people is that they should pay only for their independence.

Regarding the Iranian judiciary's actions in response to the assassination, Bagheri-Kani stated that the information must be obtained. Sufficient investigation must be carried out to identify the perpetrators accurately. Then, the case will be pursued internationally.
