The International Committee In Search of Justice (ISJ), comprised of 4,000 parliamentarians, welcomes the Spanish National Court’s summon for the commander of the bloody July 28-29, 2009 attacks on Camp Ashraf, and supports the call of the PMOI for summoning all the perpetrators of this crime to the court for a fair persecution and punishment, regardless of their posts and offices. While congratulating Ashraf residents, who with their laudable resistance and endurance, brought about such a great victory for their people and Resistance, the ISJ underlines the followings:

Fearful of the growing influence of the courageous story of resistance by executed political prisoner Ali Saremi among people and especially youths in Iran, the Iranian regime has threatened his family not to include moving poems or statements about his ideals and thoughts against injustice and tyranny on his grave stone.

A group of families of political prisoners staged a protest gathering in front of the infamous Evin prison in Tehran on Saturday, according to reports.

The relatives especially expressed concern for the situation of prisoners on death row, demanding to meet with their loved ones.

The Washington Times - By Brian Binley  - January 2, 2011 - So what will the No. 1 foreign-policy challenge be for the Obama administration in 2011? The answer perhaps was given by Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Florida Republican and the incoming House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman, when she said Iran was challenge "number one, number two and number three."

In 2007, Ali Saremi (right) is seen with his son, Akbar Saremi, and wife, Mahin Saremi. Ali Saremi, a political prisoner, was executed last week. Akbar Saremi said his father's body was buried with no funeral service allowed.

(CNN) - By the CNN Wire Staff - January 2, 2011 -  -- Iranian authorities have buried the body of a political prisoner, who was executed last week, without the presence of his family or friends, his son told CNN.

Over 60 regime agents attacked political prisoners at Gohardasht prison on Thursday to intimidate them after the execution of one of their cellmates, Ali Saremi, who was hanged last Tuesday.

The attack and beatings were ordered by Ali Haj Kazem, the prison warden, and his deputy, Ali Mohammadi. It was meant to “punish” the prisoners for their decision to hold a memorial ceremony for Mr. Saremi.

THE HUGGINGTON POST - December 31,2010 - In a shocking display of contempt for jurisprudence and human rights, Iran has executed 63-year-old Ali Saremi -- a political dissident since 1979 who spent a total of 24 years in prison, and was hanged on December 28 for "waging war against God". Many European nations have already condemned this brutality, but so far the U.S. government has remained silent.

The agents of the Iranian regime’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) secretly buried Ali Sarami’s corpse in Amirabad, a village around the city of Boroujerd, western Iran, on Friday evening, December 31. The regime’s agents did this four days after his execution in Tehran’s Evin prison without any notification to his family. 

On Saturday morning, Sarami's family and a large number of his relatives went to his burial ground to pay respect and place flower. Groups of people from areas in the vicinity attended a ceremony held in his honor in Chaharbareh village, the village Sarami was born. 

Ali Sarami, the 62 year old political prisoner who was executed on Tuesday by the Iranian regime exuded extraordinary courage and determination even in his final days and moments, according to an eyewitness and Mr. Sarami’s spouse.

The eyewitness said, “The henchmen came to take Ali in the early morning hours. He told them he wants to pray first. They brought him a turbah [small piece of soil or clay to pray on], but he told them ‘I don’t want anything from you, I will just pray on the ground.’”

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, raised alarm against further executions of political prisoners in Iran in letters to the UN Secretary General, the President of the United State and leaders of the European Union. She wrote that the mullahs’ regime, angered and disappointed of widespread domestic and international support for the rights of Ashraf residents and fearful of deep economic and social crises and internal factional feuding, plans to execute number of other political prisoners, particularly the family members of Ashraf residents.
