European Parliament members want IRGC on terrorist group list

Members of the European Parliament on Tuesday called on the EU to designate Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organization.

They expressed horror over recent executions of protestors who took part in massive protests challenging the Iranian government.

“As long as Revolutionary Guards terrorize their own people and the entire region, we should treat them as terrorists and put them on the sanctions list,” said MEP Hannah Neumann, a German politician from the Greens party, in Strasburg.

The EU is reportedly preparing to designate the IRGC as a terrorist group in co-ordination with the UK.
