Democrat Joe Biden’s administration is being accused of ignoring the pleas of the Iranian people, who are dissatisfied with Ibrahim Raisi over a massive crime against humanity in 1988, in Iran, and are now working with the White House without repercussions.
“Jen Psaki seemed to suggest that the US is only planning on holding Raisi accountable for new HR violations in the future,” Jazayeri, a news editor for Iran, told me when I was followed up with him about what is happening in Iran.
The people of Iran have been speaking up about abuses in the country at the hand of powerful Mullahs, and being ignored and persecuted while America emboldens and funds the same powerful insiders.
The conflict centers around Ibrahim Raisi the new President-Elect of Iran. His campaign was protested heavily by the people and activists in Iran leading up to the election.
“Iran’s state TV official translator deliberately cuts out sensitive parts of foreign reporter’s question to Ebrahim Raisi on his role in the #1988Massacre, including @amnesty‘s call for him to be investigated for “crimes against humanity,”M. Hanif Jazayeri reported on Twitter.
White House @PressSec: US will hold Ebrahim Raisi accountable for "violations of human rights on his watch GOING FORWARD"

Even though the people want him to be investigated for crimes against humanity, the Biden administration embraces him and has said publically that they will look over his past abuses.
“The people of Iran certainly expect the US administration to lead the international community into holding Ebrahim Raisi accountable for perpetrating crimes against humanity. Mass murderers like Raisi should not enjoy impunity. In any case, the 1988 massacre is an ongoing crime against humanity. People are put in prison and face torture only for demanding justice, while the regime also continues to destroy the mass graves of the victims. The families deserve to have closure, through an international Commission of Inquiry,” Jazayeri told me.
Jazayeri continued to post evidence that the UN should investigate the character of Raisi.
Will democratic countries support a UN Commission of Inquiry into Raisi's crimes against humanity?

According to Iran media, events leading up to the 1988 :
“Following the 1979 revolution, Ruhollah Khomeini’s regime continued to sink the country into a merciless religious dictatorship that spared neither women, nor students, nor minorities. In the same period, Khomeini’s henchmen murdered 70 members and supporters of the MEK during peaceful rallies, meetings, and protests.
On June 20, 1981, the MEK tested the democratic environment a final time by launching a demonstration to remind the Khomeini regime of its responsibilities to respect the fundamental freedoms of the Iranian people. In Tehran, more than 500,000 people attended the demonstration, which hadn’t been publicly declared in advance.
In response, Khomeini ordered the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), his personal army, to open fire on the unarmed and peaceful protesters.
Therefore, June 20 is known in Iran as a turning point of the Iranian people’s struggle for freedom that proved the regime is unable to reform and needs to be overthrown.

Ahmad Ebrahimi, 60, told i that he came face-to-face with judge Ebrahim Raisi when he was an inmate in Tehran that year, when Raisi was one of four people on the prosecution committee responsible for the execution of thousands of political prisoners. The group was known as the “death committee” by opponents of the regime.
Raisi, who is under US sanctions for human rights abuses, secured a landslide victory in Iran’s presidential election on Saturday, which saw record low voter turnout of 48 per cent.
