NCRI Statements on Human Rights in Iran
Following heavy clashes during Ahwaz's Bloody Friday yesterday, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, strongly condemned the brutal suppression of the demonstration by people in this city. While offering her condolences to the families of those killed and praying for the recovery of the injured, Mrs. Rajavi called on the people from neighbouring towns in Khuzestan and throughout Iran, from all ethnic backgrounds, to rush to the aid of the people of Ahwaz, especially those of Arab descent under repression.
The intent is to prevent the removal of Mojahedin from terrorist list, which has gained growing support in Europe, U.S.
Timing and haste to produce the report, no inquiries from Mojahedin, the nature of sources, testimony-by-telephone which serve to preserve an anti-human regime reach unprecedented nadir in manipulating human rights
Yesterday, more than 1,000 teachers demonstrated outside the mullahs' Majlis in Baharestan Square for the third consecutive day. Suppressive agents of the State Security Forces, under the command of Col. Massoud Jafari, beat up and arrested a number of demonstrators. To identify and harass the teachers demonstrating, agents of the Ministry of Intelligence and Security filmed the teachers.
Hojjat Zamani, a member of the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI) has been in jail since the year 2000. After being brutally tortured in the notorious Evin Prison, Hojjat escaped and managed to flee to Turkey. But he was arrested and turned over to agents of the Ministry of Intelligence and Security, the mullahs' dreaded secret police. Hojjat was brought back to Iran and once again subjected to torture.
