Several eye-catching trucks carrying billboards drove around New York City on Tuesday, with messages calling out Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and his administration for their vast human rights abuses, ahead of his address at the 76th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).
“Ebrahim Raisi must be investigated for crimes against humanity,” and “a government of designated terrorists,” were some of the bold banner messages seen around Manhattan, according to a video posted on Twitter by Iranian Americans for Liberty

The new president addressed the UN on Tuesday in New York. Dissidents striving for a free and secular Iran are using the opportunity to urge international leaders to prosecute him. 
Raisi, a hardline former judiciary chief linked to mass executions of objectors in the 1980’s, was elected earlier this year in an election allegedly rigged by the ayatollah.

In a letter to US President Biden, ahead of his speech to the UNGA, more than 400 Iranian-American scholars asked the president to call for Raisi to stand trial before an international tribunal for his role in the 1988 mass killing of dissidents, Fox News reported
World leaders from Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia will not meet with Iran at the UN this week to discuss a return to nuclear deal talks, European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell told reporters on Monday.
