Clerical Regime’s Consul-general in Sweden Hurls Nasty Insult at Renowned Iranian Singer, Gisoo Shakeri

NCRI logoOn Wednesday, March 9, Mohammad Reza Nili, the clerical regime’s Consul-General in Stockholm, hurled a nasty insult at the renowned Iranian singer, Ms. Gisoo Shakeri, after she objected to being photographed and filmed by him outside the Swedish Courtroom, where Hamid Noury, one of the regime’s henchmen is on trial for his role in the 1988 massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in Iran.

The regime’s agents are enraged over Ms. Shakeri’s relentless support for the Iranian people’s Resistance, especially in defense of Iranian women’s rights and freedoms, and her tearing and torching of the pictures of Khomeini, Khamenei, and Ebrahim Raisi during her performances in rallies. Previously, regime agents had repeatedly insulted, slandered, and threatened Ms. Shakeri, the rebellious artist for doing that.

The clerical regime diplomat’s insulting of Ms. Shakeri is undoubtedly a clear violation of Swedish and European law. He should be punished for it by being deported and barred from appearing in court again.

It seems that during yesterday’s hearing, arguments, and questions by Kenneth Lewis, the lawyer for the plaintiff, had greatly frustrated and angered the embassy and regime officials in Sweden. In his well-reasoned remarks and questions yesterday, Mr. Lewis, a prominent Swedish lawyer, and jurist cornered Hamid Noury into making several admissions, frightening Noury’s behind-the-scenes handlers, especially at the regime embassy, which explains Nili’s repugnant behavior outside the courtroom.

Documents provided by Kenneth Lewis, including an audiotape of Nasserian (cleric Mohammad Moghiseh[1] – a criminal judge infamous for sentencing prisoners to death or lengthy prison terms on false charges) and Ali Razini[2] (head of Branch 41 of the regime’s Supreme Court), refuting claims by Hamid Noury and all the Ministry of Intelligence agents that the henchman involved in the 1988 massacre in Gohardasht prison, was another individual with the same name as Noury (Hamid Abbasi). The citations and arguments were so strong that Noury inevitably acknowledged the voice in the audiotape was Nasserian’s and foolishly sought to justify his earlier statements.

Similarly, the developments in the Swedish court prompted Kazem Gharibabadi, International Affairs Deputy for the regime’s Judiciary, to go berserk and lash out at the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK/PMOI). Out of desperation, he also wrote a series of letters to the UN Secretary-General, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, the President of the Human Rights Council, the Presidents of the EU’s Council, the Commission, and the European Parliament to complain about the standing enjoyed by the MEK among European parliamentarians and institutions.

On February 20, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, the clerical regime’s Foreign Minister, and an aide to the eliminated commander of terrorist Quds force, Qassem Soleimani, met with the foreign ministers of Belgium and Sweden at the Munich Security Conference and complained about the ongoing trials in the two countries against the regime. Regarding the trial of Hamid Noury, he told the Swedish Foreign Minister: “It is unacceptable that bilateral relations between our countries have become a target of Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK)’s conspiracy.”

[1] According to the audiotape disclosed by the NCRI, Mohammad Moghiseh had strongly opposed Noury’s trip to Sweden because of his role in the 1988 massacre, but other actors in the regime downplayed the issue and reassured Noury to go.

 [2] – The transcript of Ali Razini’s tape: “Look, how important was their information? The more I think, what have they been able to obtain? Does he (Hamid Noury) have high-level information? Or has been an interrogator in Evin in 1981. What’s going to come out of this? Nothing. It is all spent information.”
