Struan Stevenson: Iran, The End of the Mullahs

There is a government-in-exile waiting to restore peace, democracy, and stability to Iran, led by Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI). With the imminent demise of the mullahs, the Iranian people can look to a bright future where oppression is ended and human rights and women’s rights are restored, in a country that abolishes the death penalty and ends the threat of nuclear proliferation and Middle East domination.

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi president elect the NCRI wrote on twitter:

Using torture to extract confessions and forcing those detained to take part in television interviews are routine practices under the (Iran) mullahs’ rule. These practices are egregious Human Rights Violations and must be condemned by the international community
