Slovak MEP: ‘clear improvement’ in Iranian human rights a pre-condition for expanded relations with EU

NCRI – Slovak MEP, Ivan Stefanec, said that he had joined with more than 270 Members of the European Parliament, from all groups and across all states, to call for a ‘clear improvement’ in human rights in Iran as a pre-condition for the Iranian regime’s expansion of relations with the European Union.

A senior international business leader, as well as an MEP from Slovakia, Mr. Stefanec said there was ‘a moral duty to speak out’ about the abuses by the Iranian regime.

‘We see the horrible pictures of public hangings every day,’ he said.

Assuring the Iranian people that MEPs like him ‘are fighting for you every day’, Mr. Stefanec declared, ‘Freedom will come back to Iran.’

The supporters of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) are to hold a major Free Iran rally on July 9 in Paris where the opposition will be joined by an audience of policy-makers and civic and religious leaders as well as Iranians from across the world. The event supports the 10-point plan of Iranian opposition President-elect, Maryam Rajavi.
