MESOP 13.10.2013 – Austrian police issued an international arrest warrant for the three Iranian terrorists on December 22, 1989, long after they had left the country. The arrest warrant, which is still valid today, could be used to arrest Sahraroodi during the IPU in Geneva.
The KDPI statement said “The governments of Switzerland and Austria have not taken any action on this matter. Given the experience we have had in the past, we therefore decided to release this statement in order to put pressure on the governments of Austria and Switzerland to uphold the law rather than allow economic and political interests to decide in this case.” “We have mobilized all our recourses in pursuit of justice. At the same time, we call upon the members of the European Union to put pressure on the Swiss government to uphold the law and arrest Sahraroodi and turn him over to Austrian authorities.” the statement added.
