Two committees of the Italian Senate held a joint hearing on the violations of human rights in Iran and the Iranian regime’s interference in Middle Eastern countries.
Mr. Struan Stevenson, the president of the European Iraqi Freedom Association (EIFA) and Mrs. Dowlat Nowrouzi, the U.K. Representative of the National Council of Resistance of Iran were heard by Italian senators and dignitaries.
Iranian dissidents in Camp Liberty have staged a protest at psychological torture by Iraqi guards who are broadcasting sound into the camp through giant loudspeakers.
One camp resident told the Al-Jazeera news channel on Wednesday: "We are protesting today the sound torture of Camp Liberty by Iraqi intelligence agents. For 45 days, agents of the Iranian regime that were stationed here during the previous Iraqi government have began torturing residents by broadcasting sound into the camp, closest to where the sick are housed."
NCRI - Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, described the 61st resolution condemning the brutal and systematic violation of human rights in Iran adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on December 18, 2014, as another decisive document on illegitimacy of having economic and political relationship with the ruling clerical regime in Iran and added: "This resolution leaves no doubt that the regime's appalling human rights record must be referred to the Security Council for binding and preventive measures, and those responsible for 120,000 political executions must be brought to justice."
The United Nations General Assembly on Thursday slammed the violations of human rights by the Iranian regime.
The resolution criticizes the Iranian regime's use of inhuman punishments, including flogging and amputations, and its use of the death penalty against young people under age 18.
OPEC countries will earn around $700 billion dollars from oil exports in 2014, a drop of 14 per cent on the previous year - but Iran's decrease in oil revenue could be even steeper, America's Energy Information Administration has announced.
The drop in oil earning was due to a fall in OPEC oil exports and lower oil prices, with the 2014 average for Brent crude oil projected to be eight per cent below the average 2013 price, the EIA report said.
NCRI - The cruel medical blockade on Camp Liberty and hampering access of residents to medical services continues.
On 15 December 2014, while all coordination for transfer of five patients to hospital had been made, in the last minutes and for no reason, the Iraqi agents prevented the patients’ departure and thus they missed all of their medical appointments.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the Iranian Resistance believes the Iranian regime must be placed under 'maximum international pressure and sanctions' if it is to be forced to give up its quest for a nuclear bomb.
In an interview with Ambassador Ken Blackwell, published in a number of news media, the leader of the Iranian Resistance identified the three facets of the regime’s survival strategy. Firstly, acquiring nuclear weapons, secondly, repressing its own citizens and thirdly aggression and meddling in neighbouring countries.
The head of the Iranian regime’s Human Rights Council has said if the nuclear talks fail, it will be the fault of the West.
Mohammad Javad Larijani said that world powers are grasping at ‘every opportunity’ to put pressure on Iran in their negotiations with the regime.
NCRI - Two men have been publicly lashed in Iran for offences of disturbing public order and mischief.
The pair named only as K.A. and M.M. were each given 40 lashes in Chamestan County, in Mazandaran province.
Iran’s threat to expedite the execution of ten men in retaliation for going on hunger strike has been condemned as 'deplorable' by Amnesty International.
One of the condemned was named as Saman Naseem, a Kurd who was a minor when he was arrested for talking part in a gun battle during which a member of the Iran’s Revolutionary Guards were killed.
