Remove Mehdi Amir Abu Taleb, IRI French Ambassador violent to peaceful protesters during demonstration on 31st Janury 2010
On January 31, 2010 the Islamic Republic’s Embassy in France held a banquet commemorating the day that Ayatollah Khomeini left France for Iran from Neuphle-le- Chateau to reign over 30 years of a violent, fascist regime in Iran which its people are trying to remove
On the street, in front of the meeting place, Iranian protesters peacefully held signs and chanted slogans such as, “Death to Dictator,” and “Free the political prisoners.”
When the bus of the ambassador arrived the protesters increased their chanting. The French police had taken positions amongst the protesters to avoid any incidents. The Ambassador, Mehdi Amir Abu Taleb, who took the Paris post in September of last year, angered by the slogans, thinking that he is in Iran where you can meet peaceful protesters with violence, attacked one of the protesters.
The police interfered and the angry Ambassador punched the police officer trying to hold him in the chest. That act was enough to bring down the wrath of the police who had to restrain his “Excellency” and were about to handcuff him when the personnel of the Embassy interceded and informed the police that it was the Ambassador that they were holding and that he enjoyed diplomatic immunity.
We, the undersigned, call on the French Foreign Secretary and the UN to remove this violent individual from his post and return him to Iran in disgrace after his completely unacceptable behaviour.
