Rahim Mashaee, chief of staff of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
[After Hamid Baghaee, former vice president of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, was arrested and imprisoned, Rahim Mashaee, chief of staff of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and a group of his supporters gathered in front of British embassy to symbolically set fire to Baghaee’s sentence. Later, Mashaee himself was arrested too.]
[Chanting slogans]—”We will give our lives to take Iran back”
Mashaee: Today Baghaee and other prisoners who are in prisons for political reasons are not the only prisoners. Know that throughout history, not just hundreds of thousands but millions of people were killed, imprisoned, tortured by the order of British empire. And today many freedom fighters all over the world are imprisoned by the order of the British queen.
Today we set fire to this unjust sentence [of Baghaee] to defy the dominance of Britain and Iran’s enemies forever symbolically. And we promise that prosperous, free and value-centered Iran, as in the past, will shine once again on top of the world.
