IRAN: Executions in a week reaches 81

Monday, 20 April 2015 19:08

Ghezel Hesar PrisonCoincident with mass executions in the prisons of Ghezel-Hessar, Karaj and other cities, the anti-human regime of mullahs sent 16 other prisoners to the gallows in Mashhad and Birjand (northeastern Iran). Twelve of them were hanged collectively in Vakilabad prison of Mashhad on April 16, and the other four were executed in Birjand prison the following day. Thus, the number of executions from 12 to 18 April reached 81, meaning 12 executions per day.

The unprecedented increase in the wave of executions after the Lausanne nuke framework is a clear indication of the mullahs’ desperate need of creating an atmosphere of fear in the society to confront the explosive situation.

Thursday, 16 April 2015 11:10

Cyber terrorismA 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.

Iraqi agents continue to obstruct burial of Iranian dissident who died 70 days ago

Wednesday, 15 April 2015 23:50

Map of Camp LibertyAgents 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.
