Iran's president-elect has pgslot  called himself “a defender of human rights” after being asked directly about his involvement in the 1988 mass executions of some 5,000 people.


Ebrahim Raisi made the comment Monday in a news conference with journalists, his first since winning Friday's election in a landslide.


Raisi was part of a so-called “death panel” that sentenced political prisoners to death at the end of the 1980s Iran-Iraq war.
