Delay in imposing comprehensive sanctions by EU would aid mullahs to acquire atom bomb, continue executions and torture, suppress uprising
NCRI - As the European Union Foreign Ministers meet on Monday, January 25, 2010, the Iranian Resistance reiterates the fact that the continued widespread political and economic ties with the Iranian regime and delay in imposing comprehensive sanctions against it – under any pretext – would only aid the regime in its bid to acquire nuclear bomb, to execute and torture more political prisoners and further suppress the nationwide uprising that is threatening the existence of the entire dictatorial regime.
NCRI - Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, described the devastating earthquake in Haiti as a major human tragedy and offered the deepest condolences and sympathy of the Iranian people and their Resistance to the people of Haiti.

IRGC acquires 50 percent stake in Iran's Telecommunications Company in a fresh move to control the country’s phone and internet networks
NCRI - On Sunday, September 27, 2009, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) of the Iranian regime acquired 50 percent of Iran’s Telecommunication Company’s shares after winning a sham bid worth $8 billion at Tehran’s stock exchange. The sale, which took place after an apparently open bid, rendered complete and official the IRGC’s control over the telephone and internet networks of the country. The main purpose of the move is to intensify suppression and terror, curb the nationwide uprising of the Iranian people and prevent people from having freedom of access to the internet.
NCRI - As the Group of 8 (G8) leaders prepare to meet in Italy this week, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, emphasized the need to adopt a tougher policy towards the religious fascism ruling Iran. She also called for the referral of the regime’s dossier on crimes to the United Nations Security Council as well as obliging it to agree to hold free elections under UN supervision.
NCRI - In letters to the UN Secretary General, Security Council, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and international human rights organizations, Mrs. Rajavi, the President-elect of the Iranian Resistance warned that those arrested during the Iranian people’s nationwide uprising were facing torture and execution as well as being forced to make forced televised confessions. She called for the regime’s criminal file to be referred to the Security Council and binding measures to be adopted to prevent the torture and execution of political prisoners. She reiterated the need to send an international fact-finding mission to Iran to investigate and reports on the crimes of the mullahs’ regime.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi: "Words are not enough; G8 must impose comprehensive sanctions against the Iranian regime, refer its dossier of crimes to the UN Security Council and support free UN-supervised elections in Iran"
NCRI - The President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, has welcomed the declaration of the G8 foreign ministers, in which they condemned “violence which has led to the loss of Iranian citizens’ lives,” and urges the Iranian regime to “immediately halt” the violence, while expressing “solidarity with the victims.” But, she said, regrettably, this reaction is not proportional to the clerical regime’s brutal suppression of the uprising of millions of Iranians across the country. Making statements does not suffice and time for action has arrived. The era of appeasement, negotiations and concessions vis-à-vis the Iranian regime has passed.
Nationwide uprising in Iran – Statement 49

He ran towards the Vetinary College and was chased by a group of plainclothes agents and arrested once again. The agents threw him on the ground and attacked him with a dagger until he passed away in front of shocked bystanders. The agents escaped while dragging his body away.
