Condemned by Law: Assassination of Political Dissidents Abroad
The Iranian regime’s state-sponsored campaign of political assassinations abroad does not merely violate the criminal laws of the jurisdictions in which the crimes took place – it also implicates an array of international legal norms and obligations. This report aims to supplement the two previous reports, Murder at Mykonos: Anatomy of a Political Assassination (2007), and No Safe Haven: Iran’s Global Assassination Campaign (2008) in order to construct a powerful and comprehensive indictment of the Iranian regime’s assassinations abroad based on the rule of law.
