Iran ex-minister wanted by Swiss in murder of exiled opposition leader - Khaleej (Pars) Times

- This murderer is not the only one that will face justice. Hey Ahmadi-nejaad, Rafsanjani, Khamenei, Khatami where are you going to go when the regime falls? You know just as well as we do that the time is comming closer. At least when the Shah's regime fell he had options on where to be exiled. The only area where you have succeeded in the last 27 years is in making enemies for yourselves all over the world. Not even Afghanisatn will take you! You can be sure that even if you do find exile in another country we will chase you everywhere that you go. The criminals of the Islamic Regime will pay for their crimes against the great people of Iran.
A Swiss investigator has issued an international arrest warrant for a former Iranian minister for his alleged involvement in the slaying of an exiled Iranian opposition leader, a Swiss newspaper reported yesterday.

Le Matin Dimanche reproduced part of the document in which Jacques Antenen, an investigative magistrate in the Swiss canton (state) of Vaud, requested Swiss federal authorities to demand the arrest of Ali Fallahian, Teheran’s hardline former intelligence minister.

The Lausanne-based newspaper reproduced the beginning of the “strictly confidential” document, which it said was sent March 20 to the Swiss Federal Justice Ministry — which is responsible for transmitting the document internationally — requesting the arrest on grounds that Fallahian “decided and ordered the execution of Kazem Rajavi,” who was shot to death near his suburban Geneva home in 1990. The ministry declined to say whether it received the warrant or had acted on it.

“We never confirm whether there is an international arrest warrant or not, because searches under such a warrant are confidential,” ministry spokesman Folco Galli told The Associated Press.

Antenen, who has been in charge of the investigation since 1997, could not be reached for comment yesterday. Rajavi, a member of the Mujahedeen Khalq resistance movement, obtained political asylum in Switzerland in 1973 and publicised human rights violations in Iran.

He was killed in the Lake Geneva town of Coppet, 11km east of Geneva, when his car was sprayed by machine gun fire.

Dozens of dissidents and other Iranians, considered to be enemies of Iran’s government, have been assassinated since the 1979 Islamic revolution.
