About Iran has suggested its activists and readers to send the following letter to the President of the European Commission.

April 1997

His Excellency, Jacques Santer
President of the European Commission
Rue de la Loi 200
1049 Brussles, Belgium
Fax: 32 2 295 0122 3 4

Dear President Santer:

I am pleased to learn that the independent and courageous German judges of the Mykonos trial in Berlin have found that the "Political Leadership in Iran," including Mr. Ali Khamenei, Mr. Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani and Mr. Ali Akbar Velayati, has authorized Mr. Ali Fallahian, Iranís security chief, to undertake the assassination operation of three Iranian Kurdish leaders and their translator in 1992. This is a victory for those seeking justice and the independent judicial system in democratic societies. Also, I thank the European Union for deciding to ask its member countries to recall their ambassadors from Iran following this dramatic conclusion by the court.

Indeed, such a drastic action is the only effective way in making the Islamic Republic realize the consequences of their campaign of terror against their opponents in exile. I am sure that by undertaking this action, the European Union has sent a strong message to the Islamic government that their acts of terror against their own citizens will not be tolerated by the world democracies. The European Union has also shown peace loving Iranians that it upholds the principles of human rights and does not give in to the threats of a regime that violates human and democratic rights of its citizens.

It is my understanding that your member countries are preparing to study future EU relations with the Islamic Republic. In this regard, I would like to ask for your kind consideration of the following facts and points in formulating your new policy toward Iran:

Once again, thank you for the EUís stand on the Mykonos verdict.

Sincerely,
