Prince Reza Phalavi condemns the assault on Iranian protesters by Swedish Police
After the violent attack by the Swedish police against Iranians protesting Mohammad Javad Zarif’s visit to Stockholm, Prince Reza Pahlavi released a statement strongly condemning the police, saying: “Iranians will not forget this shameful behavior by the Swedish police.”
Yesterday, as Sweden was hosting the foreign minister of the Islamic Republic, a group of Iranian immigrants in Sweden protested against his presence.
Prince Reza Pahlavi states: “I strongly condemn the Swedish Police’s severe and ugly treatment of our countrymen who objected to the presence of the Islamic Republic’s agents in Sweden.”
“It is regretful that the Swedish government, which claims to be feminist and progressive, not only hosts the agents of a misogynistic and oppressive regime, but it even violently assaults Iranians who were displaced and exiled by that oppressive regime,” the statement continues.
The prince emphasized: “Iranian people will take back their country, and after their freedom, they will not forget these shameful actions.”
Prince Reza also addressed the Iranian protesters in Sweden: “My fellow countrymen, I heard your cry for freedom, and I am proud of your courage.”
He concludes: “Iranians across the world should learn from your example and through unity and solidarity, not allow the representatives of the regime to travel freely and in peace and lie shamelessly and cover up the Islamic Republic’s crimes.”
