Activists lament 'impunity' of Iran's Raisi after crash loss of life


Human rights groups and emigre opposition factions expressed regret that Iranian president Ebrahim Raisi’s death meant he never saw justice for crimes they say he committed during decades as a leading figure in the Islamic republic.

A man who rose quickly through the ranks after Iran’s 1979 Islamic revolution, Raisi was accused by activists of overseeing mass executions of prisoners in 1988 followed by a litany of human rights abuses as judiciary chief and later president.
