Prince Reza Pahlavi’s Message to the Iranian People regarding their peaceful uprising in Iran. In a video message to the Iranian People Prince Reza Pahlavi reiterates his solidarity with his countrymen and salutes the men, women and children who stand up for their rights in their pursuit of human rights and democracy, and reminds the military and paramilitary forces in Iran to stand with the people rather than the theocractice government of Iran.
My Dear Compatriots and Freedom loving citizens of the World,
Today I am submitting the following report to the United Nations Security Council on crimes against humanity, ordered by Mr Ali Khamenei, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic, and carried out on the people of Iran. The focus of the attached "Report on Crimes Against Humanity Committed in Iran on the Orders of Mr. Ali Khamenei -- Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran" are the crimes against humanity committed to suppress popular dissent after Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's fraudulent re-election in June 2009. The evidence in this report provides sufficient cause for the United Nations Security Council to take up this matter and refer it quickly to the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court in The Hague. However, for the past thirty-three years, the Supreme Leaders of the Islamic Republic have had in place a policy and record of oppression against ethnic communities and religious minorities. I intend to file further supporting reports documenting the abuses of these Iranian citizens and will summarize these crimes in another report.
This attached report along with the cover letter is addressed to the following recipients:
The Right Honorable President Hu Jintao of the People's Republic of China The Right Honorable President Nicolas Sarkozy of the French Republic The Right Honorable President Dmitry Medvedev of Russia The Right Honorable President Barack Obama of the United States His Excellency Prime Minister David Cameron of the United Kingdom

I want to thank the team of legal and human rights experts who worked tirelessly to put together this important report. I strongly urge the members of the United Nations Security Council to give top priority and their highest consideration to this vital matter and expeditiously refer these crimes to the International Criminal Court.
The people of Iran have suffered far too long and today expect help and support from the international community. I therefore encourage all justice-minded people around the world to take action and ask their respective governments - particularly those who are members of the security council - to take positive action on this complaint.
