Iran's Judicary to form special committee for Fakhrizadeh's assassination case

Tehran (IP) - The head of Iran's Judiciary stressed the formation of a special committee to prosecute the perpetrators and planners of the assassination of Iran's top nuclear scientist.

Iran Press/Iran news: Sayyed Ebrahim Raisi, the head of Iran's Judiciary, said at a meeting of the Supreme Judicial Council on Monday that the martyr Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, a prominent nuclear scientist, is the hero of "nulling sanctions and threats" of the enemy in the field of nuclear and defense affairs.

He added that the attorney general, while enjoying cooperation with the General Staff of the Armed Forces, the Judiciary Organization of the Armed Forces, and the intelligence and security services, should form a special committee to prosecute the perpetrators and planners of the assassination.

"Sanctions and assassinations are two sides of the same coin," he said, noting that westerners who call for restraint in the face of assassination are actually giving the green light to terrorists.

The head of Iran's judiciary also said: "Intelligence and security services should not hesitate in identifying and destroying the infiltration network in different parts of the country."

Last Friday (November 27th), armed terrorist elements attacked the car of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, head of the Research and Innovation Organization of the Ministry of Defense and Logistics of the Iranian Armed Forces, and assassinated him, who was a prominent Iranian nuclear scientist.

Many countries, including Russia, Venezuela, South Africa, Qatar, and Turkey, have condemned the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh.
