Maryam Rajavi: Council of Ministers' defiance of the European people's representatives and court rulings emboldens mullahs to intensify their suppression at home, pursue nuclear weapons, increase violent meddling in Iraq, and export of fundamentalism
NCRI - The European Parliament adopted a resolution, condemning systematic and flagrant violations of human rights in Iran and underscoring the rulings of the European Court of Justice, and the UK Court (Proscribed Organizations Appeal Commission) which annulled the designation of the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI) in the EU terror list. It called for the removal of PMOI from the terror list.
Maryam Rajavi said that the EU Council is defying the judicial and legislative institutions and called on member states not to allow the continuation of such a scandal and lawlessness
NCRI - In its session today, Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly adopted the draft report and resolution on the terrorist lists prepared by its Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights (CLAHR). Citing the report, the resolution reiterated that "The Council of the European Union and the EU Member States must implement immediately the decisions of competent European and national judicial institutions affecting the status of the listed persons or entities."
The report criticized the EU Council for not implementing the verdict by Court of First Instance of the European Communities (CFIEC) in removing the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI) from the EU terror list. The report added, "PMOI's fundamental rights continue to be violated." The report also noted that the ruling by the Proscribed Organizations Appeal Commission (POAC) ordering the British government to deproscribe the PMOI was "a real slap in the face for HM Government."
NCRI - Today, the Proscribed Organisations Appeals Commission (POAC) reaffirmed its November 30 judgment, ordering the British Secretary of State for the Home Department to remove the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI) from the list of proscribed organizations. It rejected the Secretary of State's leave for appeal against the judgment.
In its ruling in the case involving the application by 35 members of the Houses of Commons and Lords, POAC described the Secretary of State's decision to maintain the PMOI on the list of proscribed organization as "perverse."
NCRI - Nearly seven years after the proscription of the People's Mojahedin Organisation of Iran (PMOI) in the United Kingdom, today, after extensive scrutiny, the Proscribed Organisations Appeals Commission (POAC) issued a judgment which unequivocally declared the terrorist label against the PMOI unlawful, null and void.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, described today's ruling as a magnificent victory for justice, an acknowledgement of the righteousness of the Iranian Resistance and the PMOI, indicative of the awakened conscience of the international community and a message of firmness by the world community to the religious fascism ruling Iran.
- Iranian people welcome acknowledgment of terrorist nature and conduct of Iranian regime's Revolutionary Guard Corps, Qods Force and banks
- The move is a clear testament and an indispensable prelude to democratic change in Iran
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, said the Iranian people welcome the US government's official acknowledgment of the terrorist conduct of the Iranian regime's Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), the Qods Force, banks, Ministry of Defense and other entities as well as its leaders. She also described the move as an indispensable to thwart the export of terrorism and fundamentalism to the Middle East region, in particular the regime's meddling in Iraq and to prevent the regime from obtaining nuclear weapons.
NCRI - Yesterday, the French Foreign Minister Barnard Kouchner said that Iran acts in Iraq as it pleases and it has turned that country into its play ground. He further added that Iran helps both the Shiite and Sunni militias at the same time. Such events in Karbala which left hundreds of people dead or wounded are the results of such interventions.
