Iran-Iraq: Release abducted members of PMOI in Iraq – Geneva rally

Rally in GenevaNCRI – “Groups affiliated to the Iranian regime have plans to manipulate the result of upcoming elections in December in Iraq,” said Jean-Pierre Lano, General Secretary of the Swiss association for education, training and freedom in a rally in Geneva.

The groups plan to use forged ballots or force people to vote for their list of candidates, Lano said and added that they would in the next stage swap the sealed ballot boxes with the ones filled with favorable ballots previously.
He made these remarks in a rally organized by supporters of the Iranian Resistance outside the European Headquarters of the United Nations in Geneva on Tuesday. Demonstrators condemned clerical regime’s meddling in Iraq and called for closure of torture centers in that country set up by mullahs’ agents.
The participants also called for immediate release of two abducted members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran, Messrs. Hossein Pouyan and Mohammad-Ali Zahedi, who were taken by elements acting as members of the Iraqi Interior Ministry’s Special Forces back in August.
A delegation representing Iranians in the rally delivered a letter to officials of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees containing their demands. The delegation was received warmly at the UNHCR and they were assured of close consideration of their demands.
