Iran Ebrahim Raisi Is Sued For Torture in SDNY Week Before Speech At UN Which Bans Press

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book
BBC - Honduras - CIA Trial book - NY Mag

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 15 –  Less than a week before the UN General Assembly week kicks off behind closed doors in Midtown Manhattan, Iran's president Ebrahim Raisi was on September 15 sued in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

   Inner City Press, which covers the SDNY daily since being banned from the UN for reporting on Secretary General Antonio Guterres' close relations with authoritarian rulers from Iran to China, Cameroon to Cambodia, found the Complaint in the docket on September 15, filed at 8:30 p.m. 

  In it, Mehdi Hajati, a former city councilman in Iran; Hamid Babaei  and Kylie Moore-Gilbert, an Australian academic formerly taken hostage by Iran then traded with Thailand, sued under the Torture Victim Protection Act.

   Inner City Press previously exclusive first reported the presentment in SDNY Magistrates Court of Khalid Mehdiyev for stalking Iranian dissident Masih Alinejad with an AK-47 outside her Brooklyn home.

   On that case, and UN-linked Iranian lobbist Afrasiabi, set to quietly plead guilty in Brooklyn federal court on September 19, the UN has refused all of Inner City Press' questions, as well as its timely application to enter the UN to cover the General Assembly "debate" which starts on September 20. 

his case is Hajati et al. v. Raisi, 22-cv-7849 (Unassigned)
