Tehran regime must pay for crimes against humanity
The Washington Times - By David Amess
While the world rightly sanctions Iran over its nuclear proliferation, it is has been far less forceful in censuring the appalling human rights abuses in the Islamic republic. Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, a 43-year-old mother of two, anxiously awaits her impending stoning sentence. The Tehran regime has announced that the execution of political prisoner Jaafar Kazemi is imminent. His crime? Refusing to appear on state television to denounce the activities of his teenage son, who has joined the opposition People's Mujahideen Organization of Iran (PMOI) in Iraq's Camp Ashraf. Last month, the regime amputated the hands of six men accused of stealing.
153 of the most prominent judges, jurists, and law professors in Egypt have written to US President Barack Obama demanding that American forces ensure the protection of Camp Ashraf residents in Iraq.
Camp Ashraf, Iraq, is home to about 3,400 Iranian dissidents, members of the main opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).
US Senator John McCain released a statement on Friday voicing his deep concerns about the allegations against political prisoners in Iran, including ‘moharebeh’ or enmity towards God which carries the death penalty according to the regime’s inhumane laws.
According to BNO News on Friday, Senator McCain said the Iranian regime’s actions are in contravention of its international obligations, according to which Tehran must respect international human rights conventions and the UN Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
A ranking member of the Iranian regime’s Majlis (Parliament) confirmed on Sunday that the mullahs’ Supreme Leader has been discredited among the various factions, adding that some are refusing to comply with his views.
According to the state-run Fars news agency, Mohammad Dehqan, a member of the presiding board of Majlis, said there are some who want to remain in the establishment yet refuse to follow the orders of the regime’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, and thus are harming the entire system.
Subsequent to the launch of the Bushehr nuclear reactor, governments in the US, Britain and France emphasized growing international worries concerning the Iranian regime’s nuclear activities and called on Tehran to comply with its international obligations.
The US State Department’s spokesman, Darby Holladay told AFP on Saturday that the reactor "underscores that Iran does not need an indigenous enrichment capability if its intentions are purely peaceful."
On the 23 anniversary of the 1988 massacre of political prisoners in Iran, a regime official close to the mullahs’ Supreme Leader has called for a similar massacre to “neutralize the sedition,” in reference to the Iranian people’s nationwide protests.
In 1988, the Iranian regime committed a massacre of more than 30,000 political prisoners in what rights organizations have described as a crime against humanity. An overwhelming majority of the victims were sympathizers of the main opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).
The condition of a political prisoner in Gohardasht prison in Iran has rapidly deteriorated on the 39th day of his hunger strike.
According to obtained reports, Arjang Davoudi’s life is now in serious danger. The political prisoner, who is being held at Karaj’s Gohardasht prison, launched a hunger strike almost six weeks ago in protest to the tortures and inhumane conditions at the prison.
An Egyptian member of Parliament this week called on the United Nations to enact urgent measures to lift an Iraqi-government-imposed siege on the residents of Camp Ashraf, Iraq, home to 3,400 Iranian dissidents.
Mr. Mustafa Bakri, who is also the editor-in-chief of the weekly al-Asbou in Egypt, said in a message marking the holy month of Ramadan, “I urge all non-government organizations in the world to rise up in defense of the besieged residents of Ashraf.”
A Kuwaiti member of Parliament this week congratulated Iranian dissidents in Camp Ashraf, Iraq, for the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan and expressed solidarity with them.
Dr. Walid Tabtai referred to an inhumane siege imposed by the Iraqi government on Camp Ashraf which restricts the residents’ access to food, fuel and medical treatment, among other things.
