The Public Prosecution Service (OM) of the Netherlands has demanded 20 and 22-year prison sentences against alleged executors of the liquidation of Iranian refugee Mohammad Reza Kolahi Samadi. The man lived in the Netherlands under the alias Ali Motamed.
Samadi is held responsible by Iran for a deadly attack in 1981 in that country resulting in 73 deaths. The man was sentenced to death in absentia. In the early 1990s, Samadi applied for asylum in the Netherlands and lived happily ever after in the Netherlands. The Dutch government protected the terrorists for years until he was shot dead. https://www.nu.nl/binnenland/5815872/om-eist-tot-22-jaar-cel-voor-moord-vermeende-iraanse-aanslagpleger-in-almere.html
The two suspects Anouar A. (29) and Moreo M. (36) denied having anything to do with the murder earlier this week. Anouar stated that it was a mistake that he was the one who was involved in the liquidation. Moreo invoked his right to remain silent.
However, the OM says it has sufficient evidence that the two men shot Samadi on December 15 in the vicinity of his home in Almere. The man was a technician and he was on his way to work on that fatal Tuesday morning.
Hafte Tir bombing

On 28 June 1981, a powerful bomb went off at the headquarters of the Iran Islamic Republic Party (IRP) in Tehran, while a meeting of party leaders was in progress. Seventy-three leading officials of the Islamic Republic were killed, including Chief Justice Ayatollah Mohammad Beheshti (who was the second-most powerful figure in the revolution after Ayatollah Khomeini at the time). The Islamic Republic of Iran first blamed SAVAK and the Iraqi government.
