Mr. Jalal Abedini is the 25th PMOI member that loses his life due to the medical blockade. Numerous requests for his transfer had been sent in the list of patients to various countries, including Finland and Britain, as well as the lists of patients sent to Ms. Jane Lute, representative of UN Secretary-General.
Call by Mrs. Rajavi on the United States and the United Nations for swift action to end the medical blockade which is a clear case of crime against humanity.
A group of Camp Liberty residents protest medical siege.
Mr. Jalal Seyed Abedini, 58, a Camp Liberty resident and a refugee of Britain that has been in the several list of Liberty patients to be transferred out of Iraq, underwent an urgent abdominal surgery on April 15 for a 20 cm tumor in his intestine and is currently in critical condition. He has also been suffering from an eye disease for many years and is living on just one kidney.
A new study of Iran’s cyberactivities, to be released by Norse, a cybersecurity firm, and the American Enterprise Institute, concludes that the clerical regime has greatly increased the frequency and skill of its cyberattacks, even while negotiating with world powers over limits on its nuclear capabilities, The New York Times reported on Wednesday.
Frederick W. Kagan, who directs the institute’s Critical Threats Project said: “Cyber gives them a usable weapon, in ways nuclear technology does not.” “And it has a degree of plausible deniability that is attractive to many countries,” he added.
Iranian-Americans rallied outside on Tuesday as Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi met with President Obama at the White House. The demonstrators used the opportunity to demand that the United States uphold its commitments to the safety and security of thousands of Iranian dissidents residing in Camp Liberty, Iraq.
Despite the steady rain, the protesters chanted and held placards urging Mr. al-Abadi to provide protection to some 2500 Liberty residents and to remove all restrictions, including limitations imposed on the residents’ access to proper medical treatment.
Agents under the command of Iraq's National Security Advisor Faleh Fayyad continue to prevent the handover of the body of Mr. Ali Salari and his burial. The administrative and legal processes have been completed, but the stonewalling by Iraqi agents has prevented the burial up till now. Ali Salari lost his life 70 days ago due to the medical blockade imposed on this refugee camp by the Iraqi elements of the Iranian regime. This is a camp of Iranians opposed to the Iranian regime.
Refusing to handover the bodies of the martyrs or preventing their burial and memorial ceremonies is a well-known method employed by the religious fascism ruling Iran that is now being implemented through its Iraqi agents against the Iranian dissidents residing in Iraq.
Ali Salari is the 24th resident of camps Ashraf and Liberty that have been martyred by the medical blockade. In the past 70 days, Camp Liberty residents, as well as their representatives and legal advisors and lawyers, have referred 65 times to the police center in Liberty to receive Ali Salari’s body. They have also brought up the issue with UNAMI, UNHCR and the U.S. Embassy in dozens of calls and meetings and hundreds of correspondences to no avail.
The Iranian Resistance calls on the United States, the UN Secretary-General and his Special Representative in Iraq, and all human rights organizations to take immediate steps to end this anti-human and illegal behavior by the Iraqi agents and to have the body of Mr. Salari handed over to be buried.
Secretariat of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, April 15, 2015
Executions: Highest figure in the past 12 years
Press Release by Friends of a Free Iran
We are very disturbed of the news of the increasing trend of executions in Iran.
Eight prisoners were hanged on Monday in the Central Prison in the city of Karaj. The prisoners in Gohardasht Prison and Central Prison in Karaj launched a protest on Sunday to save dozens of their cellmates who are on the verge of execution.
Inmates who are on the verge of execution include a number of young prisoners sentenced to death who were chanting in the July protest in Ghezelhesar Prison "We will not let you kill us anymore! We will not let you execute our cellmates!"
On Tuesday, 14 April 2015, elements of the Governmental Committee tasked to suppress Ashraf and Liberty, including Colonel Sadeq Mohammed Kadhim and Major Ahmed Khozeir, brought a group of mullahs’ regime Intelligence Ministry (MOIS) and terrorist Qods Force agents to the base of the police company tasked to protect Camp Liberty in the camp under the pretext of families of PMOI in Liberty and began reconnaissance of camp’s vicinity. A few hours later, they were taken away. According to the information received by the resistance from inside Iran, the mercenaries are expected to be taken to Liberty in the ensuing days as well.
The Iranian regime’s henchmen in Central Prison in the city of Karaj hanged eight prisoners on Monday. The victims had been sentenced to death for drug related offence.
The state-run media in Iran reporting the executions gave no other information on the victims.
The U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, has criticized the Iranian regime’s record on women’s rights.
Ambassador Samantha Powers said: “In Iran, women are legally barred from holding some government positions, there are no laws against domestic violence, and adultery is punishable by stoning, making it wholly inappropriate that Iran assume a leadership role on women's rights and welfare at the UN."
Power expressed “extreme disappointment" at the Iranian regime joining the board of UN Women, created in 2010 to push for gender equality and empowerment of women.
While the fourth week of the unlawful detention of Mr. Safar Zakery, a resident of Camp Liberty, on the pretext of a suspicious car accident ends, Nasser Moussavi, the inspector (the investigative judge) of Karkh Court in Baghdad who is a close associate of Maliki is continuing this blatant hostage taking upon absurd pretenses and is placing impractical conditions for release of Mr. Zakery at the behest of the clerical regime.
On Thursday, April 9, after Moussavi interrogated Mr. Safar Zakery in the presence of his lawyers and residents’ legal advisor as Mr. Safar Zakery’s interpreter, Moussavi declared in a decision that as far as the car accident is concerned, the release of Mr. Safar Zakery is made conditional on a bail of 30 million Iraqi Dinars that should be placed by an employee of Government of Iraq that should be a resident of Baghdad.
The Iranian Resistance calls on the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, the UN Human Rights Council, and other organizations in defense of human rights, to take immediate measures to secure the release of dozens of youths arrested in the southeastern Iranian city of Ahvaz on Wednesday.
The Iranian regime’s suppressive State Security Forces barbarically raided several districts in city of Ahvaz on Wednesday, arresting over three dozen youths. The raids were carried out in the districts of Hamidiya, Molashia and Kouya Enghelab.
U.S. Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said on Friday that a nuclear agreement with Iran must include inspections of its military sites, a position at odds with recent comments by Ali Khamenei, the regime’s Supreme Leader.
In an interview with CNN, Carter said the nuclear deal being negotiated between the world powers and the Iranian regime must include ways to verify Tehran’s compliance.
