News: Terrorism and fundamentalism
By Amir Taghati
Ever since the US withdrew from the 2015 nuclear deal last May, the Iranian Regime has been desperate to expand its relationship with the European Union and encourage the EU to continue its appeasement policy with the mullahs.
Following the EU’s decision to impose sanctions on Iran's Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) and two senior officials, as well as place them on the EU terror blacklist, the Regime’s reaction has been very interesting.

The Danish Foreign Ministry recently announced that the European Union has imposed sanctions upon Iran’s intelligence service and two figures within it, finally acting upon recommendations made by Denmark’s authorities in October when they revealed yet another plot to assassinate Iranian opposition figures on European soil.

Last year it became apparent that Iran was behind two thwarted attacks in Europe. The first was an attempt to bomb the annual Free Iran rally in Paris that is organised by the main Iranian opposition group. The second foiled attack was an assassination attempt against Iranian Arab dissidents in Denmark.

The European Union has just announced that it is sanctioning the Iranian regime for its involvement in terrorist plots in Europe. This includes the freezing of assets belonging to several Iranian officials and those of individuals with links to the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence. One of the officials is Assadollah Asadi – an Iranian diplomat that was arrested last year for participating in the foiled plot against the Iranian Resistance at its annual gathering in Paris. The other Iranian official is Saeid Hashemi Moghadam - a senior member of Iran’s intelligence service.

The European Union placed sanctions against Iran regime’s intelligence ministry and two Iranian nationals on Tuesday after the Dutch government accused the Iranian Regime of likely involvement in two assassination plots in the Netherlands.
This means that financial assets belonging to a unit of the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence and Security and two Iranian nationals, one of whom is in prison in Belgium over his involvement in a terror plot in France, held in the EU will be frozen.
Text of speech by Struan Stevenson, Coordinator for Campaign for Iran Change (CIC) in Human Rights Abuse, Repression and Terrorism, the Three Pillars of the Iranian Regime:
Could I thank the Frontline Media Club for holding this important meeting today. It is a great pleasure for me to be here.
I have been closely following the situation of Iran for nearly two decades. During my time in the European Parliament, I chaired the Friends of a Free Iran intergroup for 10 years. The intergroup consisted of many MEPs from different political groups and different countries. Apart from numerous articles, in 2014 I wrote a book about the Iranian opposition, ‘Self-Sacrifice’, which has been translated from English to French and German.
