EDM #1525
Tabled 16 July 2018
2017-19 Session
That this House strongly condemns the attempted bombing at the gathering of the Iranian opposition in Paris, Free Iran - The Altemative; notes Belgian prosecutors have announced that two Belgian nationals of Iranian origin were charged with attempted terrorist murder and the preparation of a terrorist offence and both are suspected of wanting to commit a bomb attack in Villepinte, France, on 30 June 2018 at a conference held there by the MEK, the People's Mojaheclin of Iran (MEK/PMOI); further notes Assadollah Assadi an Iranian diplomat based in Vienna, was charged in Belgium and Germany in connection with the plot and arrested in Germany; notes the German prosecutors' statement that Assadi gave the couple the bomb to be used; notes a senior US State Department official stated that Iran is responsible for the plot; strongly condemns Iran's regime over its terrorist activities in Europe and misuse of diplomatic privileges; reiterates the need to try the suspects and expel other Iranian intelligence officers operating under diplomatic cover or as ex-members of the opposition; calls for a robust policy to confront Iran's malign activities; and reiterates this incident demonstrates the regime's fear of the MEK/PMOI and National Council of Resistance of Iran coalition as the democratic alternative to its rule.
