Allegations of “torture” and “ban on visiting relatives” are false / FAZ has acted illegally / the principles of permissible reporting have not been observed / The MEK and the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) have not been heard

Iran: women living in holes and canals

The Iranian regime has brought nothing but poverty and destruction for Iranian people. Iranian women are under even greater pressure, due to the regime’s misogynist nature. The current situation of the Iranian society has forced some Iranian women to live in holes and canals, according to a regime expert.  

In an interview with the state-run Etemadonline website, Mohammad Reza Mahboubfar said: “Some women heads of households have no shelter and are forced to live in ruins, destroyed buildings, shantytowns, tents, underground holes and canals. Female slumdwellers do not have appropriate housing.”

How Tehran’s crackdown on corruption backfired on itself

Ebrahim Raisi, Iran’s chieft of judiciary

The past weeks have seen an escalating series of controversies surrounding the financial corruption of the Iranian regime’s judiciary, the body that is ostensibly charged with cracking down on financial crime. The ongoing criminal trial of Akbar Tabari, the former executive deputy of previous judiciary chief Sadegh Amoli Larijani, and a dozen other regime insiders and officials, and the recent mysterious death of Gholamreza Mansouri, one of the suspects in the case, has caused much commotion about what is going on in the judiciary.

In response, Ebrahim Raisi, the current head of the regime’s judiciary, participated in a television program in an attempt to address the controversies. The expectation was that Raisi would, at least in appearance, take a strong stance on corruption in order to vindicate himself.
