Press release – ISJ Conference – Brussels 20.11.2014
The International Committee In Search of Justice (ISJ) disclosed in a press conference in Brussels today (Thursday, Nov 20, 2014) that in the past two decades the Iranian regime has concealed its nuclear military program inside a civil program and has covertly advanced it.
In this conference, ISJ presented the conclusion of its extensive investigation of several months about Iranian regime’s nuclear projects in a 100-page report. According to this investigation, Iran’s nuclear program in the past two decades has been composed of two apparently dissimilar systems; one is a civil system that includes the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) and the universities, and the other is a military system that has been the principal part and the clandestine aspect of this program. These two structures, much like two concentric circles, have worked side by side with the nuclear military system at the heart of this program.
NCRI - Critically ill political prisoner, Ali Moezzi, has been transferred to solitary confinement and his family has been told by authorities in Tehran’s infamous Evin Prison that no communication is allowed with him.
Mr. Ali Moezzi, who has just a few months of his sentence remaining and is about to be released, was recently transferred from Gohardasht Prison in Karaj to Tehran’s Evin Prison and where he was put under heinous pressures.
The goal of the ongoing nuclear negotiations with the Iranian regime should be “to prevent — not delay — a nuclear Iran”, Pennsylvania lawmakers have declared.
Representatives Patrick Meehan, Charlie Dent and Jim Gerlach were among the legislators who released a joint statement declaring: "Iran lost its right to an independent nuclear program when it became the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism, and any nuclear power facilities in Iran should be controlled and operated by international observers.”
House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA) and Ranking Member Eliot Engel (D-NY) issued the following statement as negotiators attempt to reach a final agreement on Iran’s nuclear program by November 24th. This week’s talks in Vienna will attempt to finalize the agreement that was outlined by the interim “joint plan of action” signed a year ago.
The Wall Street Journal writes: "With a Monday deadline looming, either success or failure of the talks would have fateful implications for Washington’s ties to the Middle East and for the potential spread of atomic arms in the region.
"What diplomats say is the most likely outcome—an extension of talks—would prolong uncertainty over the conflict between Iran and the West."
NCRI – A day after the United Nations General Assembly’s third committee adopted the UN’s 61st resolution condemning human rights abuses in Iran and urged the regime to stop the executions, a man was hanged in public in a northern city.
The prisoner identified as H. Mirjani, 32, was hanged in Velayat Square in the city of Qaemshahr.
The US House of Representatives has voted to approve legislation that will condemn the 'gross human rights violations' committed by the Iranian regime.
The resolution comes just days ahead of the November 24 deadline for world powers to reach a deal with the clerical regime.
The West must ensure it does not agree a weak nuclear deal with the Iranian regime, which has 'no intention' of abandoning its quest for a nuclear bomb, the US House of Representatives has been told.
Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, chairman of the Subcommittee on Terrorism, Non-proliferation and Trade, also branded Iran the biggest sponsor of state terrorism since the Islamic revolution in 1979.
The United Nations nuclear agency chief said on Thursday that the Iranian regime had failed to provide explanations regarding its atomic bomb research and called on Tehran to step up cooperation with a long-running investigation.
Yukiya Amano, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, told a meeting of the IAEA’s 35-nation board of governors: “I call upon Iran to increase its cooperation with the agency and to provide timely access to all relevant information, documentation, sites, material and personnel.”
Forty-three senators sent a letter to the White House on Wednesday night warning President Obama not to bypass Congress as the administration nears the deadline for a nuclear deal with Iran.
The letter heralds the stiff opposition that Obama will face from the new Republican-majority Senate if his administration signs a deal with Iran next week – one they consider bad.
