    The British Committee for Iran Freedom (BCFIF) has issued a statement condemning the "vicious attack, which was an assault not only on Sir David, but also on democracy in the UK".

    Sir David was a champion of human rights and democracy in Iran for more than three decades. He consistently spoke in support of the Iranian people’s democratic aspirations and the Iranian Resistance movement, NCRI, the BCFIF said.

    "One of the proudest things I have ever done in my political career is to support the National Council of Resistance of Iran which calls for the Iranian regime to be replaced with a safer and more democratic government," Sir David said on 6 September.

    In an email to the BBC, supporter Jahed Madumi wrote: "With great sorrow I heard about Sir David Amess' loss.

    "As an Iranian I have to say that he was a great friend of our nation, and he always defended the freedom for the people of Iran."

    Mr Amess is seen above with the British delegation during the Conference In Support Of Freedom and Democracy In Iran in Paris in 2018.
