Iran's people have been forced to sell their body organs to make ends meet as the rogue regime of Hassan Rouhani is pushing its "boiling society" below the poverty line, Hossein Abedini of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) has told Britain's Express.

In an interview with Express.co.uk, published on September 11, 2019, Mr. Abedini said Iranian people have been forced to sell their kidneys and other body organs to survive whilst Iran's "dictatorial" regime tries to divert the attention on international conflicts.

Mr. Abedini warned the "boiling society" of Iran is ready to explode like a volcano and it is increasingly making Rouhani's regime more "vulnerable at home".

He said: “Inside Iran, there is a boiling society like a volcano and the people are absolutely fed up with this dictatorship.

“There have been demonstrations, the Iranian people are suffering," he said.

“Iran is a very rich country sitting on an ocean of oil and being the second biggest gas holder in the world after Russia."

“But 80 percent of the Iranian people are living below the line of poverty."

“And 30,000 had to sell their kidneys and their body organs to survive, to make their ends meet.”

Mr. Abedini added: “The regime is making all these threats because they feel they’re vulnerable at home.

“And they want to create crises outside Iran to divert the attention.”

The NCRI member also warned that Iran's regime has been using dual national hostages as a “bargaining chip” to deal with the West thanks to the "weak" approach of the European Union against the mullahs.

He said: “Whatever the regime says it’s not from a position of strength. If they saw robustness and if they saw a strong action, a unified action, they would retreat from their position. Our experience for many many years is that this regime has faced lots of crisis inside Iran."

“It’s only a hollow threat but it’s, of course, a terrorist regime so the only way to deal with it is not to give it further concessions."

“They should deal with it as strongly as they say. There are tactical measures that should be taken."

“Especially putting the IRGC down on a terrorist list," he added, referring to the regime's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).

Mr. Abedini said the EU and its national governments have "weak policies that are counterproductive" when it comes to dealing with Iran's regime.

On Tuesday, it was announced that the Iranian regime has detained two British-Australian women and an Australian man after they were arrested in two separate incidents, with the trio currently held in a notorious jail in Tehran.
