NCRI - Iranians living in France, supporters of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), on Thursday held a human rights stand in Paris' Trocadero Square to condemn the appalling human rights violations and soaring rate of executions by the regime in Iran under the presidency of Hassan Rouhani. They also had displays exposing the 1988 massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in Iran.
Following the July 14 Iran nuclear deal, the clerical regime embarked on a new wave of executions, including several cases of group hangings.
A spokesperson for the European External Action Service (EEAS) has confirmed that Interpol’s warrant against Brig. Gen. Ahmad Vahidi, a former defense minister of the Iranian regime, is still valid. He is being sought for his role in the bombing of a Jewish community centre in Argentina in 1994 which claimed 85 victims.
Vahidi was serving as the commander of a special unit of the Iranian regime’s Revolutionary Guards known as the Quds Force when the attack occurred. He is one of five Iranians sought in the bombing.
NCRI – A delegation of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) earlier this week addressed a major international annual human rights conference in the Italian Senate.
The conference, entitled ‘Universality of Human Rights,’ was organized by Italy’s non-violent Radical Party on July 27 and included speeches by Benedetto Della Vedova, the Deputy Foreign Minister of Italy; Sid Ahmed Ghozali, former Prime Minister of Algeria; Giulio Terzi, former Foreign Minister of Italy; Jamal Ali Jassim Buhassan, a Member of Parliament from Bahrain; and renowned Italian human rights figure and former lawmaker, Marco Pannella.
Maryam Rajavi: Destruction of Sunni prayer hall in Tehran is an anti-Islamic, sectarian and criminal act
She called on the international community, defenders of human rights and freedom of opinion to condemn this suppressive measure
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, president-elect of the Iranian Resistance, described the destruction of a Sunni prayer hall in the Poonak district of Tehran as an anti-Islamic, sectarian and criminal act, and she called on all defenders of human rights and freedom of religion and belief and the international community, especially the Muslim countries, Europe and the US, to protest against it.
The United States Congress should reject the recent nuclear deal by the Obama administration with the mullahs' regime in Iran and instead support the Iranian people and their organized Resistance to bring about regime change in Iran, Dr. Ivan Sascha Sheehan writes in The Hill.
"The Iranian regime is the principle sponsor of Bashar Assad’s murderous regime, a source of ethnic and religious violence in Iraq, and the central state-sponsor of terrorism globally. Their deplorable record on human rights also receives annual global condemnation," Dr. Sheehan wrote on Thursday in The Hill.
International conference on human rights at the Italian Senate condemns violation of human rights and suppression of the Iranian people by the clerical dictatorship
NCRI - The second international conference, entitled “Universality of Human Rights for the transition towards the Rule of Law and the affirmation of the Right to Know”, was held on Monday, July 27, in the Italian Senate in an initiative by the Nonviolent Radical Party in cooperation with the two societies of “Hands off Cain” and “No Peace Without Justice”.
NCRI - Iran’s regime on Thursday hanged five prisoners, including a woman, in the south-eastern city of Kerman, and it executed another prisoner in the city of Ardebil, north-west Iran.
Three of the men executed in Kerman were identified as Ezzat Sabeki, Meysam Shahraki and Ali Zehi. The victims were executed in Kerman's Shahab Prison.
Another man was hanged Thursday morning in the central prison of Ardebil, according to the state-run Tasnim news agency.
NCRI – The fundamentalist regime in Iran on Wednesday destroyed a Sunni prayer hall in the capital Tehran.
The mullahs’ regime in Iran, misusing the banner of Shiite Islam, denies the minority Sunni population their basic rights.
In the early hours of the day on Wednesday, officials from the Tehran municipality, backed by state suppressive forces (police), raided and destroyed the Sunni ‘Pounak’ prayer hall. The suppressive forces further searched the premises of the mosque’s Sunni imam Abdullah Moussa-Zadeh and confiscated his mobile phone.
A Democratic member on the U.S. House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee came out against the Iran nuclear deal on Wednesday, as the White House seeks to gather Democratic support.
Rep. Grace Meng (N.Y.) said the "deal before us now is simply too dangerous."
"I strongly believe the world could and should have a better deal than that set forth in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, which I will therefore oppose," said Meng, who is a member of the Foreign Affairs subcommittee on the Middle East.
At the White House recently, U.S. President Barack Obama hailed the recently-announced nuclear agreement with Iran's regime as “the best deal.” A closer look at the details of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, however, provides little cause for celebration, writes Alireza Jafarzadeh, the deputy director of the Washington office of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).
