Te majority of the members of Italian Parliament in a bipartisan initiative announced their support for the Iranian Resistance in July. On October 23, in a press conference, members of the Italian parliament revealed that the ruling religious dictatorship in Iran has attempted to blackmail them into withdrawing their support for the Iranian Resistance.

The Iranian Resistance condemns blackmailing by the mullahs’ regime and calls on the Italian government to implement the ruling of the Court of First Instance of the European Communities which calls for the removal of the PMOI from the EU’s terror list and thus deprive the mullahs from its most important instrument against Iranian people and their Resistance.
