Camp Ashraf in Iraq: Spanish court investigates a close ally of Maliki
A Spanish court investigation is to include Faleh al-Fayad, security adviser to the Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. This comes in the wake of a complaint filed against him as a person responsible for serious breaches of the Fourth Geneva Convention for his alleged involvement in the killings on April 8, 2011, and September 1, 2013, of protected persons under the Fourth Geneva Convention living in Camp Ashraf, according to the decision.

Iran regime’s morality police crack down on women

Iran's fundamentalist regime is establishing more suppressive laws suppressing and marginalizing women, Elaheh Arj of the Women's Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) told the International Business Times.

 Iran's women face a crackdown over veiling, as "morality police" have stepped up street patrols, prepared to arrest those not viewed as "veiling correctly," the IBTimes wrote on Thursday. Since the beginning of the month, more "morality stations" have been set up around the country, with one woman reporting having her car impounded after her veil was deemed improper, or too loose, while there have been raids by the morality police around Tehran's Vanak Square. An employee of a Vanak Square restaurant said: "People have been arrested during this period in raids conducted on public places like restaurants. They are subsequently transferred to an unknown location by vans that are parked nearby for this purpose." Elaheh Arj, vice chair of the Women's Committee of the NCRI told the IBTimes: "At least 64 women have been executed alongside at least 2,300 men in Iran during [President Hassan] Rouhani's tenure. In recent months Iran's regime has stepped up its crackdown on women for 'mal-veiling' and its morality police hound the streets to arrest women on the pretext of improper veiling. Iran's first gender-segregated train, carrying only women, started rolling on 4 April 2016 between Tehran and Mashhad." "While the world is pledging for parity and as the United Nations is planning to eliminate gender inequality and discrimination against women in line with UN Women's Planet 50-50 by 2030, violence, discrimination and inequality are institutionalised in the Iranian regime's laws. This is a regime that arrests and beats women for celebrating international women's day and establishes more suppressive laws to marginalise women." "It's a myth when people say things have improved in Iran under the so-called 'moderate' President Rouhani. In fact, it's the total opposite," she added.
