Former UN official Tehar Bomedra speaking in conference in Westminister on IranNCRI - British MPs, peers and human rights lawyers have united to demand an end to Iran's theocratic regime and protection for dissidents living in Camp Liberty in Iraq.

The dignitaries made the call during an emergency on the plight of Camp Liberty residents in the House of Commons this weekm Barnet Today reported.

British MP Matthew Offord said the Iraqi government of failing to protect Camp Liberty residents from deadly rocket attacks and depriving them of their basic humanitarian needs.

Liberal Democrat peer Lord Brian Cotter said the Iraqi government had allowed attacks to be carried out on the dissidents at Tehran’s behest.

He told the conference: "During the last two years I and my colleagues on the British Parliamentary Committee for Iran Freedom have said Nouri al-Maliki acts at the behest of the Iranian regime."

Labour peer Lord Clarke of Hampstead said Camp Liberty 'should be called a concentration camp where the people are punished and given terrible conditions day after day'.

He said that since taking over from Mahmoud Ahmadinejad last year, Iran’s president Hassan Rouhani had failed to live up to his reputation in the West as a moderate or reformer.

Lord Clarke added: "The brutality of the regime continues and gets worse. Their own media outlets claim they have executed more than 800 people since Hassan Rouhani came to power."

Mr Offord said he believed Hassan Rouhani was incapable of changing the country and called on NCRI leader Maryam Rajavi to be placed in power.

He said: "I was astonished when I heard Madame Rajavi’s ten-point plan. She has a vision and a plan for a future democratic Iran."
