"The outrageous state murder of Ali Saremi by the Iranian mullahs' regime in Iran is but one of thousands of Human Rights violations that have taken place over recent years.

 WASHINGTON, Dec. 28, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The U.S. Committee for Camp Ashraf Residents (USCCAR) strongly condemns the vengeful execution today in Evin Prison of Mr. Ali Saremi, 63, a member of the main Iranian opposition group, the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK). He spent 24 years in prisons of the Shah's regime and the clerical dictatorship. USCCAR offers its deep condolences to Mr. Saremi's family in Iran and his son, Akbar, in Camp Ashraf.

PARIS, Dec 28, 2010 (AFP) - An Iranian resistance movement in exile Tuesday denounced the hanging in Tehran of opposition prisoner Ali Saremi for activities against the country's clerical rulers.
 
The France-based leader of the People's Mujahedin Organisation of Iran (PMOI), Maryam Radjavi, issued a statement condemning the execution of Saremi in Tehran's Evin prison.

The judicial murder of 63 year old political dissident Ali Sarami, by the fascist Islamic regime in Iran, is another crime for which the mullahs will be held to account when freedom is finally restored to that beleaguered nation.

Press Release
 
The British Parliamentary Committee for Iran Freedom condemns in the strongest terms the execution on Tuesday of veteran political prisoner Ali Saremi by the Iranian theocracy. Mr Saremi's sole crime was to openly and actively support his son – a member of the opposition People's Mojahedin Organisation of Iran (PMOI) – in Camp Ashraf in Iraq, having visited him in the camp once in recent years.

In a conference in Paris on December 22 entitled “Camp Ashraf and Policy on Iran”, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, emphasized that “the US must resume the protection of Ashraf residents and the UN must station its permanent monitoring there.” The conference was addressed by distinguished figures including former New York Mayor Giuliani, former U.S. Attorney General Mukasey, former U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge, and anti-terrorism advisor to President George Bush Francis Townsend.
Mrs. Rajavi’s speech follows:

PARIS, December 22, 2010 (AFP) - Several senior former U.S. officials in the G. W. Bush administration expressed support for the Iranian opposition group People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) in Paris on Wednesday, calling the U.S. to remove the group from its list of terrorist organizations.

EFE - December 22, 2010 - Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani today led a group of U.S., French and Algerian politicians to call on the U.S. to remove the main opposition to the regime in Tehran, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), from its list of terrorist organizations.

Dozens of high-ranking former officials from U.S., Europe and Arab states, including Rudolph Giuliani, Frances Townsend, Michael Mukasey, Tom Riche, Sid Ahmed Ghozali and Alain Vivien called for adoption of a policy with the Iranian Resistance at its focal point

In an international conference held in Paris on Wednesday, December 22, at the invitation of sixteen committees from across Europe, dozens of political figures and former high-ranking officials from U.S., Europe, and Arab countries urged the international community to adopt a new resolute policy vis-à-vis the Iranian regime and the threats it poses.

She called on world community to reject the Iranian regime

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, welcomed adoption of a resolution by the Third Committee of the United Nations General Assembly on “serious and persistent violation of human rights” in Iran and said: this resolution that only covers small part of horrendous crimes committed by the mullahs against the Iranian people, well proves that a decisive policy is needed more than ever against the religious fascism ruling Iran.
