Exiled Iranian group denies torture claims

ImagePARIS, May 19 (AFP) - An exiled Iranian opposition group Thursday denied charges by a leading human rights organisation that it had tortured dissident members and said the allegations were politically inspired.
The People's Mujahedeen Organisation said in a statement in Paris that the report by the US-based group Human Rights Watch was nothing more than "a highly politicised invective against the Iranian resistance movement."

Human Rights Watch report on PMOI violates the right of defence

Press Release

ImageOne-sided report of Human Rights Watch on the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran violates the right of defence, the most basic humanitarian right

The Human Rights Watch in a report published on May 18, alleged that the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI) mistreats its members.

We were shocked to find out that the Human Rights Watch had not informed the PMOI regarding any of these allegations prior to publishing its report.

This conduct of the Human Rights Watch is in clear violation of all well- established international standards and the basic right of defence.

A report that deflects attention from the crimes of the Iranian government

The content of the baseless and unsubstantiated allegations made by those interviewed did not surprise me, as I have read their allegations and the Iranian Mojahedin's responses in various publications before. However, what concerned me was the fact that Human Rights Watch decided to publish such a report without carrying out the most basic checks to ensure the accuracy and truth of the testimonies provided and without giving the Iranian Mojahedin an opportunity to respond.

HRW should accept the mistake that it has made and withdraw this dire report

ImageStatement by Mr David Amess, MP
The PMOI whose members and sympathisers have been the primary victims of the Iranian regime's barbarity over the past quarter of a century, and who have sacrificed everything to struggle for the liberation of their people, are not in the business of mistreating their members, sympathisers or anyone else for that matter.

Here we are witnessing the second anniversary of the storming of the residence of Maryam Rajavi and her colleagues in Paris.
Two years without proper charge being made. Two years of uncertainty, two years of anxiety of those people wrongly being accused of doing things against the law in France.
I send my best wishes to the gathering taking place today. Special greetings to Madam Rajavi and her colleagues who are continuing to fight for justice and freedom.

European Police investigates Iran's secret agents

Early in the year 2000, after the escalation of activities of the agents of MOIS in various western countries, the police in these countries interviewed many of them and warned them against their relations with the mullahs’ Ministry of Intelligence.

Dissidents’ families targeted

The mullahs Ministry Of Intelligence Services(MOIS) routinely harasses and intimidates dissidents outside Iran by exerting pressure on their families inside the country. In most cases, the MOIS compels the families to contact their children abroad to urge them to discontinue their anti-regime activities and refrain from supporting the PMOI or the NCRI. In other cases, the MOIS has arrested families of exiled Iranians to force them to take a position against the Resistance or collaborate with the regime.

The clerical regime's disinformation agencies

The clerical regime has invested greatly on disinformation campaigns and demonizing strategies against the Iranian Resistance and set up an elaborate apparatus to implement it. The Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS), the ICCO, the Foreign and Islamic Guidance ministries and the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) are all involved in psychological warfare against the PMOI.

Recruiting Agents

Those who are actively engaged in the mullahs’ dirty campaign against the Iranian Resistance abroad are from several origins. The common denomination for all of them is that they are now working for the mullahs’ Intelligence Ministry.

Front associations for disseminating false propaganda against the Resistance

Forming cultural associations to disseminate false propaganda against the Iranian Resistance is another MOIS tactic. These associations are purported not to be in contact with the regime and in fact even criticize it.  One such association is Damavand Cultural Association, which uses a Canadian address...
