On November 12, the British Parliamentary Committee for Iran Freedom (BPCIF) wrote to the Director-General of UNESCO, Irina Bokova, to express its disappointment over the invitation extended to Iranian president, Hassan Rouhani, to speak before such a respected organisation next week.
The British Parliamentary Committee for Iran Freedom (BPCIF) welcomes the British government’s robust condemnation of the recent rocket attack on Camp Liberty, home to members of the Iranian opposition in Iraq. We commend the government for raising this at the highest diplomatic levels in Iraq and wholeheartedly support its call for “an urgent and comprehensive investigation into the incident and ensuring that all those responsible are brought to justice.” The attack on 29 October 2015, in which 24 camp residents were killed, was the sixth deadly attack on these Iranian dissidents at the behest of Tehran since 2009, when Iran's Supreme Leader ordered, Nouri al-Maliki, the Iraqi Prime Minister at the time, to expel them to Iran.
British MPs condemn the deadly missile attack on Camp Liberty resulting in death of 23 camp residents.
We were just informed that there was yet another rocket attack on Camp Liberty, where members of Iran's democratic opposition, the PMOI, were forced to move in 2012 after assurances of protection by the UN and the US government. And yet we were waiting to see these promises to be fulfilled when this 4th deadly attack on Camp Liberty took place this evening local time, (29 October 2015).
The British Parliamentary Committee for Iran Freedom (BPCIF) is alarmed over the recent spike in the number of executions in Iran, especially the use of death penalty against minors.
