On Wednesday, November 5, lawyer and activist Narges Mohammadi received a summons by branch two of Tehran’s revolutionary court.  She is summoned for interrogation on Saturday November 8 at the “holy martyr prosecutor’s office” located in Tehran’s Evin prison.

On October 30, Ms. Narges Mohammadi at the memorial ceremony of Sattar Beheshti, worker and blogger who was killed two years ago under torture in the regime’s detention center, said: “How is it that the MPs in Majlis (parliament) have tabled the proposal of ‘promotion of virtue and prevention of vice’, whilst Sattar’s mother has been crying over his grave, calling Sattar, Sattar… and no preventer of vice raised any voice so far?”

She also reiterated: “Is there a greater evil than killing innocent people like Sattar Beheshti, like Homa Saber, like Haleh Sahabi, like Neda Agh Sultan, like Sohrab Aerabi, and 1,000 & 1,000 others? Has a society experienced greater evil than this? So why don’t you prevent it? Why do the courts address these killings? Which one of these cases has been resolved?”

Ms. Mohammadi and a number of civil activists also participated in a gathering on October 22 in front of the Iranian regime’s parliament to protest against acid attacks on Iranian women and girls in Isfahan where most acid attacks occurred.  Continue reading IRAN: NARGES MOHAMMADI HAS BEEN SUMMONED TO REVOLUTIONARY COURT IN TEHRAN – VIDEO

Published by World Medical Association

(10.11.2014) The World Medical Association has expressed its extreme concern to the Iraqi Prime Minister about “worrying health conditions” in Camp Liberty, the former United States military installation in Baghdad, now being used to house the members of the People’s Mujahedin of Iran who previously resided in Camp Ashraf.

In a letter delivered today to the Prime Minister Hon Dr. Haider al-Abadi, the President of the WMA Dr. Xavier Deau, writes: ‘According to testimonies and reports from human rights organisations the basic rights of the 2700 residents – such as access to physicians and medicine, the confidentiality of physician-patient relationship or the right of patients to have interpreter and accompanying nurses when needed – are frequently violated.  Continue reading World Medical Association Concern Over Iraqi Camp

Breaking News: Justice prevails for Iranian Resistance in France

Justice prevailed; collaboration to demonize defeated; and legitimacy of Iranian Resistance proved

The suppression of Iranian Resistance distracted attentions from real terrorism and offered the best opportunity to the fundamentalists

Yesterday (Tuesday, September 16), the counterterrorism investigative judge of Paris Public Prosecutor’s Office ordered an end to prosecution of an infamous dossier that had been opened 14 years ago against the Iranian Resistance in a deal with the mullahs’ regime and permanently closed the file.

This dossier that started by the absurd allegation of terrorism and financing terrorism, in the absence of any evidence related to terrorism, was diverted to financial charges such as money laundering and fraud. Now, the French judicial system stipulates that there is no evidence for the financial allegations either. As such, despite pumping of false testimonies and fabricated information, the French judiciary confirmed the falseness of all charges that had been brought against the Iranian Resistance.

UN, EU and US must press Iraq to end callous siege against Iranians in Camp Liberty

The European Iraqi Freedom Association strongly condemned the fuel, food and humanitarian blockade imposed against Iranian refugees in Camp Liberty by the Iraqi government. The statement issued by Struan Stevenson, president of the EIFA, follows.

27 August 2014 – The blockade of Iranian refugees in Camp Liberty near Baghdad continues. The 2,800 refugees, including 800 women, are now completely out of fuel. Generators have shut down. Water pumps are unable to work. Food stored in the refrigerators is now spoiling. Blackwater tanks are overflowing due to the Iraqi government preventing sewage from being removed from the camp.

On Tuesday 26 August 2014, the pumping of water to Camp Liberty stopped, as fuel for the camp’s generators finally ran out. Iraqi government forces have prevented fuel, food and medical supplies from entering the camp since August 16, causing catastrophic problems. The lack of generating capacity means the 2,800 refugees have no electricity, no air conditioning despite 50 degrees centigrade heat and now, no water. This constitutes a crime against humanity perpetrated by the Iraqi government who signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the UN in which they guaranteed to look after the welfare and safety of the camp’s residents.

A senior member of the Iraqi National Alliance which includes parties with close links to the Iranian regime, said that Qassem Suleimani would be replaced by his deputy Hossein Hamadani for his failure in Iraq.

Quds Force commander, Suleimani has been in charge of the Iranian regime’s security policy in Iraq since the fall of previous government in that country in 2003.

“The National Alliance member, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Suleimani’s biggest success in Iraq was elevating Maliki to the premiership and keeping his rival Iyad Allawi out of office, firstly in Iraq’s parliamentary elections in 2005, and again in 2009, despite Allawi’s bloc winning the largest number of seats in parliament,” the report said.
