To be a political prisoner in Iran is very dangerous at this time, Tehran is continuously violating the human rights of its population but especially against detained dissidents. One recent case of human rights violation is the one about Ali Moezi his sentence is served but Tehran refuses to release him.
The list of violations against prisoners in Iran is long and it is getting longer, Tehran does not seem to change their ways, another case is about Tahereh Riahi, journalist and social editor of Borna news agency who is detained in Evin Prison, she was allowed a brief phone call to family, no new news of her fate. she is in the critical physical condition in prison.The NCRI is on a constant mission to save the lives of these political prisoners. Numerous parliaments have joined in the quest to shed light on the regime’s atrocities.
The justice in Iran is stuck in the dark ages, the sentence, stoning of a man and a woman is proof of that. This is disgusting and cruel. This is unfortunately not uncommon in Iran. This took place in Lorestan province on Feb 4th this year. Another barbaric punishment is the sentence for a 70-year-old man to get his fingers amputated. This makes me so angry, I am asking myself, what is wrong with these people? they are behaving like animals.
Another barbaric medieval sentence is that of two brothers, in addition to life in prison they get flogged and get hand amputations. Also, a young woman in Tehran has been sentenced to a year in exile and 99 lashes for talking with a man on the phone.
Amputations of hands or feet are not unusual in Iran, the regime is using this barbaric punishment in an attempt to stop people from committing crimes. This is an act of torture and the culprits must be brought to justice, the Iranian regime must be punished for their crimes against the Iranian people.
Another cruel sentence is that of a young man who is sentenced to have his eyes gouged out. The 27-year-old man identified as Hamed has been sentenced to have his both eyes gouged out because he accidently injured someone’s eye when he was helping his father who was in a car accident. This sentence is particularly disgusting because it is an act of revenge which has no place in a civilized society.
Another cruel and medieval punishment is that of parading young men and women chained to each other to humiliate them in front of the community. The only result this gives is that of an angry population that is showing their discontent with the regime in an increase of protests all over Iran, people are fed up with the mullahs and wants a regime change, in other words, they want the mullahs gone.
This is yet another proof that the clerical regime must be removed from power in Iran. if they do not go voluntarily we must remove them with force. The Iranian people deserves to live in freedom and democracy but for that to happen the Iranian resistance must be heard and the president must be elected by the people for the people. when NCRI is present in the new Iranian government these types of punishments will be abolished and the death penalty will be a bad memory from the tyranny of the despotic clerical Islamic regime. The NCRI has a ten point plan that is based on the human rights bill and that is the only option for a free and democratic Iran.
It is with great disbelief I watch the Swedish delegation enters Iran. The women who are in the front line fighting for women’s rights bends over and great the Iranian delegates wearing HIJAB, I had to look twice to believe this. I ask the Swedish ladies: How could you sell out all that you are fighting…
The NCRI press conference on 14. February 2017 was for the main purpose to expose the terrorist actions of the IRGC and the Iranian clerical regime. The NCRI has evidence of centers where IRGC is training foreign terrorist groups. This is the first time such information is made public.
The Quds force ‘s HQ is located at the Imam Ali military base, approximately 20 kilometers of the Tehran-Karaj highway. The site is comprised of a large complex housing several IRGC garrisons including the Imam Ali garrison. The logistics section of the Imam Ali Garrison called the Mostafa Khomeini Garrison is located separately and has a separate entrance and exit. The Iranian resistance has so far identified 14 training centers belonging to the directorate. 8 of these camps are located in Tehran. The Imam Ali Garrison is the main terrorist training camp for foreign nationals.
One of the heads of this unit is the Quds force commander Qassem Soleimani who is committing war crimes in Syria. it is known that Soleimani was part of the genocide that took place in Aleppo.
In 2015 Guardian Rahimi was the unit commander he was present in Lebanon aiding the Hezbollah. From 2014 Khan was the vice commander of the corps, training management unit in the countries in the region. He was previously stationed in Syria, he was killed in Aleppo.
The maps over this training centers show us that this is a matter to be taken seriously by the world leaders, this must call for actions against IRGC and they must be listed on the Blacklist.
There is no secret that the training centers are vital to IRGC ‘s terrorist actions in Syria, Yemen and Iraq. In recent years the IRGC has brought a number of its agents from Venezuela, Uruguay, Paraguay and Bolivia to the Imam Ali Garrison. Terrorist units of the Quds force are dispatched to countries in the Persian gulf area, Asia, Africa and Latin America.
The NCRI has confirmed information of the IRGC’s terrorist actions, and this must be taken seriously by all world leaders, the IRGCmust be expelled from the region, only then can there be peace and tranquillity in the region.
If there is any doubt there is no such phrase in the language of the regime, journalists, filmmakers, cartoonists and painters are imprisoned on bogus charges. The Iranian regime fears the expressions of the people. they are very well aware of people’s discontent and are using imprisonment and public flogging to silence all critical voices. By the beginning of 2017, there are 27 journalists and civil writers imprisoned in Iran, not counting the filmmakers, musicians, and painters who are sentenced from 3 to 10 years prison terms. As always Iran is violating a number of human rights.
On October 28, 2012, an Iranian blogger named Sattar Beheshti was arrested and taken to Evin prison. On November 6’th his family was told to come and pick up his body from the Kahrizak detention center. He was one of many that lost their lives because they had the courage to stand up to the clerical regime. The regime gave no explanation of why Beheshti died in detention but fellow prisoners confirm that he have been tortured until his whole body was crushed.
The Iranian judicial authorities often sentence journalists to inhumane and medieval punishment, In the space of a year, at least 4 people have been sentenced to floggingThe latest two journalists that have been sentenced to flogging got 114 lashes and the other got 40 lashes. Flogging has no place in 2017, this is a violation of human rights of enormous proportions and must be condemned by the rest of the world
The explanation of this type of action made by the regime comes from the are fear to hear the truth, Iranians does not believe all propaganda lies from the regime anymore. This due to the rapid growth of social media via the internet. The regime is doing what they can to stop the enlightenment process by restricting all types of internet media but this is futile. The regime agents are busy arresting everyone who writes a post on facebook or on twitter that is not favorable to the regime. The regime is attacking any branch of media in order to keep the Iranian people in the dark. But this will be like pissing upwind, the internet has come to stay and it is growing fast, the regime must face that they do not have 100% control anymore and that will, in the end, result in their downfall.
The wave of murders triggered an outcry in Iran’s reformist media and widespread international condemnation, as a result of which the Iranian authorities set up a commission of inquiry into the deaths. In January 1999, the intelligence ministry formally acknowledged the involvement of some of its operatives and announced the arrest of dozens of suspects
artists have also felt the fear of the mullahs, musicians painters, cartoonists, they have all suffered under the hand of the mullahs regime. It is strictly forbidden in Iran to show any picture that is unfavorable to the clerical terror regime. The regime is doing all this to prevent a people’s revolution like the one in 1979 or the uprising in 2009. The regime knows that this time they will not be able to stop an uprising, mainly because there is an exile opposition ready to take over and rebuilt Iran when the mullahs are removed from power. Secondly, the rest of the world have thanks to the internet become aware of all atrocities the regime is committing within its own borders. This has given the resistance the credibility they deserve from the rest of the world. The NCRI is by far a better choice for the governing of Iran and the mullahs know this and are silencing all voices, by imprisonment or execution.
Iranians used to think they stood alone against the oppressors but thanks to social media they know that the rest of the world are standing with them in their fight for freedom and democracy, this gives them hope, a hope for a new Iran with no more executions or torture with freedom of speech and equality between genders and religions. but above all, it gives them the courage to stand up to the despotic dictatorial terrorist regime.
This actions really boils down to the regime’s fear of losing its power over the Iranian population. And as usual when the regime is afraid they crack down even harder on the Iranian people. the Iranians have to endure the terror of a regime that is using public executions and public flogging to discourage any opposition from protesting against the regime. It is important that we stand in solidarity with our Iranian brothers and sisters and demand all prisoners of conscience’s and political prisoners unconditional release.
In the aftermath of the fire and collapse of the Plasco building in Tehran on January 19, there have been many issues regarding the lack of crises management and the lack of up to date equipment for the Tehran fire department. The government is putting the blame of the disaster on the manager of the building, but it must be the owner’s responsibility to uphold safety regulations.
The Plasco building was built in 1962 and was owned by a branch under the IRGC. The building has not had any maintenance since it was built and the building was in poor state at the time of the disaster. It contained both workshops and a shopping center.
The government claims that there was issued safety warnings for the building 14 times in the past few years, what is the use of warnings if they are not followed up and sanctions being made if the discrepancies are not corrected.
The authorities have issued 14 warnings, if this was true that means that they knew the building was not following safety regulations and failed to shut it down. And therefore are equally guilty of this disaster.
Secondly, the fire department did not have state of the art equipment according to a report they received just 54 billion tomans of the 120 billion that was set for them in the budget for 2016. The big question is, where is the rest of the fund? In the pocket of the mullahs? The fire department did not have a chance to prevent this disaster first of all their firehose did not reach above the tenth floor. And the water pressure was not sufficient to extinguish the fire. Sufficient fire equipment could have prevented the collapse of the building.There has been issued warnings of a possible disaster in case of fire but none of the warnings was taken seriously by the owner IRGC.
In the aftermath of the disaster, the transportation committee in the city council of Tehran has called for the resignation of Bagher Ghalibaf, the mayor of Tehran.witch is a legit request but, What strikes me as strange is that the news about the collapse and the rescue of those trapped in the rubble has been prevented by the regime, why? What are they hiding or trying to cover up?
A member of the fake city council of Tehran Rahmatollah Hafez admitted that the fire department has just received 54 billion of the 120 billion issued for equipment. But they have lied about it and claimed that the department has received all of the funded money. There must be an inquiry to retrieve the rest of the fund and transfer it to the fire department.
