"A voice for Scotland”
Sisters and Brothers,
There are rumours that Hassan Rouhani may be planning another visit to Europe. Rouhani is not welcome here in the West. We do not roll out the red carpet for criminals and murderers. Rouhani is not the ‘moderate’ the West believes him to be. He was Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Iranian regime’s armed forces at the time of the 1988 massacre of 30,000 political prisoners and he undoubtedly was complicit in that atrocity.

Mr Chairman, Ladies & Gentlemen,
Firstly let me thank you very much for inviting me here today to speak at this important conference to mark International Human Rights Day.
