In an article on the United Press International (UPI) website, Mr. Struan Stevenson, a former Member of the European Parliament, elaborated on the Iranian regime’s new move of appointing Mohammad Bagher Qalibaf, a Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) Brigadier General and one of the regime’s leading figures of oppression and corruption, as the new Parliament Speaker. Mr. Stevenson pointed to Qalibaf’s career which is filled with corruption and oppression of the Iranian people.
June 4 (UPI) — In 1932, Adolf Hitler appointed Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring, head of the Luftwaffe, as president or speaker of the Reichstag after an electoral surge made the Nazi Party the largest in Germany. Goring was an infamous war criminal who committed suicide before he could be hanged following the Nuremberg Trials in October 1946.
On May 27, the religious fascist dictatorship in Iran appointed Brig. Gen. Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf as speaker of the Iranian Parliament. Like Göring, Qalibaf is a notorious criminal, his career smeared with the blood of countless political opponents and his pockets stuffed with looted gold. Like Göring, Qalibaf is a former Air Force commander. He is also a senior officer in the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, the regime’s Gestapo.

Qalibaf’s appointment followed the sham elections in February, when the regime hand-picked a list of hard-line candidates and purged anyone deemed to be even marginally moderate. Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei urged the people of Iran to cast their votes in support of his selected goons and thugs, despite being aware that the coronavirus had begun to spread like wildfire.
