Murder at Mykonos: Anatomy of a Political Assassination

Murder at Mykonos: Anatomy of a Political Assassination

In September 1992 agents of the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI) murdered three leading members of the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan (PDKI) in the Mykonos Restaurant in Berlin. The attack was one of a series of assassinations designed to intimidate and disrupt the activities of political opponents of the Islamic Republic. The arrest and trial of several Mykonos perpetrators provides a unique insight into this campaign. The IHRDC has sifted through all this material, and has conducted additional research of its own, to produce the first comprehensive publicly available report on the Mykonos case to appear in either English or Farsi.
