IraqThe Iranian Resistance strongly condemns the string of bombings in Baghdad last night that spilled the blood of a large number of innocent people. It expressed its condolences to the bereaved families and wished quick recovery for the wounded.

It also called for an impartial investigation under the supervision of the United Nations about these terrorist crimes, and added that such investigations would undoubtedly expose the mullahs’ regime and its agents in Iraq whose hands are tainted with blood.

“…rape is not just a blow to one person; it is a blow to the whole family. A victim of rape is never healed with the passing of time. With every look given by a father, the wounds open again.” - Bahareh Maghami, a victim of rape in Iran April 2010 
Echoing earlier reports by human rights groups, the British media has recently highlighted the case of a young woman from Iran, "Leyla", who was allegedly abducted, detained and raped by that country's security forces because her fiancée was involved in the demonstrations that followed Iran’s disputed presidential election last year.
 
It’s a terrible story and sadly not a unique one. Following the post-election demonstrations, the Iranian authorities cracked down with astonishing severity on anyone perceived to be involved in criticism of the status quo. Thousands of people were arrested: students, lawyers, journalists, trade unionists and human rights campaigners were all targeted. Hundreds of people were subsequently tried unfairly in mass "show trials", some of which led to executions. But as more people were released from detention, the details of abuse, including rape of both men and women, were repeated again and again.

icjDr. Alejo Vidal-Quadras, Vice President of the European Parliament and the President of the International Committee of In Search of Justice (ISJ) comprised of 4,000 parliamentarians throughout the world, visited the headquarters of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) in northern Paris on Monday 1 November and met with Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the NCRI. They discussed the latest situation in Camp Ashraf, Iraq, home to 3,400 members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI-MeK), and the way in which the residents of Ashraf are protected and their rights respected.

LCIThe French TV channel LCI said in a report about the release of thousands of documents by WikiLeaks that, the Iranian regime’s foot prints can be deciphered all over the almost 400,000 documents made public on Friday and unearthed the realities of the Iraq war.

Ebrahim RaeesiA judiciary official of the Iranian regime has proclaimed that he takes “pride in implementing amputation sentences,” according to Daneshjou News this week.

Ebrahim Raeesi, the First Deputy of the mullahs’ Judiciary, said, “When a sentence becomes final by the judge about cutting off a hand, it must be implemented.”

Tariq AzizThe Iranian Resistance strongly condemns the death sentence against Tariq Aziz, former Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of Iraq. This constitutes a flagrant violation of the most basic legal standards internationally recognized.

The death penalty for a 74-year-old politician, after seven and a half years in prison and in poor health, was pronounced at the request of the religious fascism ruling Iran and Maliki’s gang.

MutlakA senior official of the Iraqiya political bloc said in an interview this week in reaction to the recently publicized documents by Wikileaks that as long as the current Iraqi government remains in power, there will not be any changes. “Such reports about crimes will be revealed much more extensively when this government is removed,” Dr. Saleh Mutlak said.

In response to a question about freedom of expression in Iraq, Dr. Mutlak said if people freely express their opinion “they will be imprisoned. I have personally seen many who were brutally tortured but later released from prison because they had done nothing wrong.”

exacutionFour people were publicly flogged by the Iranian regime at Gonbad Kavous, according to the state-run Kayhan daily on Wednesday.

The daily added that the four were charged with “disturbing public peace and destroying shops.” It added that each was flogged 74 times in public at the city’s central square.

Lt.Gen- ConeA US Army official has said that the Iranian regime’s terrorist Qods Force is behind the most number of violent terrorist attacks in Iraq.

The Qods Force, commanded by Qasem Soleimani, is the extraterritorial arm of the Iranian regime’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).
