Iranian regime torturers at Gohardasht prison have banned political prisoners there from going to the prison yard and threatened them with opening new cases against them in reaction to the prisoners’ decision to hold a memorial ceremony for their executed cellmate, Ali Saremi.

Mr. Ali Saremi, 62, was imprisoned by the clerical regime for visiting his son, Akbar, in Camp Ashraf, Iraq, where 3,400 members of the main opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) reside. In a barbaric act on Tuesday, the mullahs executed Mr. Saremi, who had spent a total of 24 years in prison.

Two daughters, whose father was executed on Tuesday, have written moving letters in memory of their father.

 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:

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.
