A collection of classified documents has surfaced, originating from within the core of the Iranian regime. These confidential records, acquired by the dissident group “GhiyamtaSarnegouni”, present a unique opportunity to peer into Tehran’s profound unease in the face of a society that is progressively more restless and on the brink of transformation. Amidst global scrutiny, these leaked materials offer an unprecedented glimpse into the regime’s growing anxieties as the populace edges closer to challenging their repressive dominance.

Leaked Documents Unmask Regime’s Fear of Iran’s Uprising, and Tehran’s Tactics to Derail It
The nationwide uprising that erupted in September 2022 was a major blow to Iran’s clerical regime, posing an existential threat to it, according to a document published by “GhyamSarnegouni” (“Rise to Overthrow” in Persian), a group of Iranian dissidents that managed to breach the servers of the regime’s presidential offices on May 29 and gain access to a trove of classified documents and internal messages.
The newly published document is a directive issued by Ali Bahadori-Jahromi, the spokesperson of Ebrahim Raisi’s government, to all cabinet members, instructing them on how to parrot false narratives about the popular protests and blame the regime’s adversaries for instigating the uprisings.
The letter acknowledges that the nationwide uprising is seated in much deeper issues than hijab and morality-related problems or the death of Mahsa Amini, a young girl who was murdered by the regime’s morality police in September.
“The enemy’s main goal is to undermine the principles of independence and authority in Islamic Iran and hinder progress,” the directive claims, tacitly saying that Iranians, which the regime describes as “enemy,” want the regime’s downfall.
Since the beginning of the uprising, some self-proclaimed opposition figures and groups have been promoting “civil disobedience” and “non-violent” means of protests, thus, downgrading the Iranian people’s right to self-defense in the face of the regime’s increasing brutality to blind and unprovoked “violence”.
Leaked Documents Confirm Tehran’s Increasing Infightings: Why Shamkhani was Booted from the SNSC?
Among many documents obtained and released by “GhyamSarnegouni,” is a letter by Raisi to Ali Shamkhani, the recently ousted Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council (SNSC). While there were many speculations concerning Shamkhani’s removal from the regime’s highest security position, the letter confirms that he was removed from this position amid the rising infightings in the clerical regime.
In this letter, Raisi criticizes Shamkhani for giving only “descriptive and analytical” reports about the nationwide Iran protests that erupted in September, adding that the regime’s SNSC is expected to offer “meta-analysis and solution and action to solve problems.”
Leaked Documents Expose Tehran’s Fear of Rising Firearms Use Amidst Growing Social Unrest
In a startling revelation, a series of leaked documents obtained by the dissident group GhiyamtaSarnegouni from the Iranian regime’s presidential servers shed light on Tehran’s deep-seated fear of a society becoming increasingly restive and taking up arms against the regime. These documents, which have been brought to public attention, underline the Iranian people’s rejection of any compromise with the regime and their strong desire to topple the oppressive regime at any cost. The leaked reports provide crucial insights into the regime’s desperate attempts to curb the rising use of firearms by citizens and its relentless pursuit to maintain control amid mounting societal dissatisfaction. Despite the regime’s façade of stability, these documents serve as a stark reminder of the simmering tensions and the regime’s vulnerability in the face of widespread discontent.
Classified Letter Reveals Regime’s Fear of Social Media and Security Challenges
A recent classified letter by Hossein Salami, the commander in chief of the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), to the regime’s president, Ebrahim Raisi, starkly exposes the regime’s deep-seated security challenges and its unnerving apprehension towards social media platforms. This leaked correspondence, obtained by the GhiyamtaSarnegouni dissident group, once again lays bare the tyrannical nature of Iran’s ruling regime, highlighting its vehement opposition to freedom and illuminating its profound vulnerability in the face of an unrelenting flow of information that ruthlessly exposes its grave human rights violations. Moreover, this letter elucidates how these online platforms serve as vital tools for people to organize themselves, amplifying the regime’s trepidation and exacerbating its faltering grip on power.
Confidential Documents Expose Regime’s Efforts to Derail UN Fact-finding Mission
A new set of documents unveiled by Iranian dissidents exposes the Iranian regime’s fear of being held accountable by a fact-finding mission that was established by the UN Human Rights Council following the brutal crackdown on protests in late 2022. According to these files, the regime is in crisis management mode to dodge international scrutiny.
The files, entailing a letter of recommendations and guidelines from a former top national security official, reveal how the clerical regime has tried to conceal crimes against humanity and deceive the international community. Following the nationwide uprising sparked by the killing of Mahsa Amini, an innocent Kurdish girl, at the hands of the regime’s police in Tehran, the regime mobilized its vast security apparatus to the brutal crackdown on protesters in the streets while arresting tens of thousands and subjecting them to severe torture in its prisons.
The documents also reveal several deceit tactics of the regime, namely taking advantage of certain mechanisms of the UN, to render genuine investigations ineffective. The author of the document, Ali Shamkhani, then Secretary of the Supreme Security Council, particularly states that UN Special Rapporteur Alena Douhan was invited to Tehran to undermine the work and exposure made by Javaid Rehman, Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights Situation in Iran.
The writing also makes clear how much the clerical regime counts on the appeasement policy of Western governments as well as the membership of its allies in the Human Rights Council to design its deceit tactics accordingly and avoid accountability.
Inside Iranian Protests: Insights from a Confidential Survey
According to 62.1% of Iranians, “In the current situation, we will not get our rights unless we protest,” as read in a leaked internal survey the Iranian regime had conducted following the major Iran protests that erupted in September 2022.
This survey has been revealed as a part of documents obtained by the Iranian dissident group “GhiyamSarnegouni” during its infiltration of the Iranian regime’s presidential websites and servers.
The leaked survey concludes that “This opinion poll reveals that despite ongoing protests, people’s primary concerns are still economic problems. Furthermore, the level of anger towards the government has a significant impact on protest actions, outweighing the influence of social networks by approximately nine times.”
While revealing the depth of Iranian people’s hatred toward the regime and the society’s restiveness, the survey’s statistics reflect only a partial reality of Iran today, as many people cannot give their true opinion due to the fear of arrest and torture by many state agencies.
Iran: Leaked Documents Reveal $6 Billion Allocation to IRGC For More Oppression
The latest published leaked documents obtained by the “GhyamSarnegouni” dissident group from the Iranian regime’s presidency indicate how the mullahs’ president, Ebrahim Raisi, provided as much as $6 billion to the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC).
These highly confidential reports highlight the urgent need for immediate assistance in providing security equipment to the IRGC and Faraja security and law enforcement units due to their fear of another round of anti-regime protests.
The IRGC commanders, including its commander-in-chief, Hossein Salami, request a meeting with Vice President Mohammad Mokhber and the head of the Program and Budget Organization, Massoud Mirkazemi, to settle a dispute between the Mirkazemi and IRGC commanders, as the former had seemingly refused to allocate the necessary fund. Another document highlights Salami demanding urgent allocation of funds for IRGC universities in Tehran province to address their immediate needs. Overall, these documents underscore the pressing nature of the situation and the need for prompt action due to society’s restiveness.
Allocating such a high amount of money for oppression once again debunks the regime’s bogus claims that it lacks funds to address the country’s dire economic situation and people’s financial calamity.
Leaked Files Reveal Regime Uses Policy and Media Tactics to Suppress Uprising
The Iranian regime has been trying to prevent protests and strikes by teachers and workers at any costs, as revealed in a leaked document obtained and published by “GhyamSarnegouni” (“Rise to Overthrow” in Persian).
The document is a “very confidential” letter from the regime’s Cultural and Defensive Publicity Organization of the General Staff of the Armed Forces to the Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council and the commander of Imam Sadiq HQ, detailing some suggestions and requirements and basic considerations related to Iran’s national Teachers’ Day and the International Worker’s Day.
While tacitly acknowledging that the ruling theocracy has no meaningful solution to the country’s social and economic crises, the letter calls for more deceptive policies, ordering state media to twist the truth and reflect the non-existing “positive actions” of Ebrahim Raisi’s government to improve teachers and workers’ livelihood.
The leaked letter also shows how much the regime is afraid of the connection between the strikes and protests of workers and teachers, desperately trying to “vigilantly prevent the formation of a network that connects workers’ and teachers’ gatherings and strikes.”
The documents, signed by IRGC Brig. Gen. Abolfazl Shekarchi highlights the role of the organized opposition, or as he says, “the enemy,” by so-called “revealing their intentions to disrupt the educational system and economic centers to destabilize the country.”
