The NCRI Women's Committee calls on the international community for the cancellation of the cruel sentence against Ms. Mohammadi and demands her immediate release
The Women's Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran strongly condemns the sentence by the Judiciary of ruling the mullahs' misogynist regime against Ms. Narges Mohammadi. Ms. Mohammadi's cruel sentence of 10 years in prison merely indicates the weakness, vacillation and fear of the clerical regime that has made it strongly vulnerable against the slightest opposition or protest.
Javad Larijani, the regime’s head of human rights, acknowledges a “torrent of executions” and justifies torture and brutal punishments under the pretense of Qisas describing them as “holy verdicts”
The mullahs’ antihuman regime hanged 13 prisoners on May 17 in the cities of Yazd, Urmia and Mashhad. In Yazd and Urmia 12 prisoners were collectively hanged. One prisoner had been condemned to death just for thievery.
On Saturday, May 14, around 100 prison guards in Gohardasht (Rajai Shahr) Prison viciously raided political prisoners’ Hall 21 in Ward 7 and destroyed prisoners’ belongings in an attempt to intensify psychological pressure and torture on the political prisoners.
Another scheme used to pressure political prisoners is an insulting and humiliating body search of the prisoner in front of other prisoners as they go to meet with their families.
The Iranian Resistance calls on international human rights defenders, particularly the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, the Special Rapporteur on torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment, the Special Rapporteur on the right of everyone to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health, the Working Group on Arbitrary Detention, and the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran, to take immediate and effective measures to secure the unconditional release of sick political prisoners and to provide them with immediate and essential medical care. It also calls for the formation of an international delegation to investigate the dreadful conditions of the regime’s prisons in Iran.
Execution of 10 prisoners, including two young men and a public hanging, in three days

Velayat-e-faqih regime (Absolute rule of clergy) is the only cause for the misery of millions of workers and toilers of Iran
Mr. Abbas Davari, chairman of the Labor Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, congratulated workers across the country on the occasion of International Workers' Day and said: "This day promises victory over the oppressors and overthrow of the mullahs' anti-workers regime, and the establishment of popular sovereignty in our captive country. Two years and nine months after Rouhani came to power, the economic policies of the regime are still serving the interest of monopolized institutions and companies related to Khamenei and the Revolutionary Guards, and the conditions of workers and toilers have continuously deteriorated during this period. According to official statistics, domestic liquidity during Rouhani’s tenure has doubled from "500,000 billon tomans to a quadrillion (1,000,000 billion) tomans." Add to that its tragic effects on the lives of working people as well as the fight that is needed to tackle corruption.
The Iranian Resistance declares its deep regret for the self-immolation of an Iranian refugee, 23, that occurred during a visit by a UNHCR delegation from a refugee camp in New Guinea.
