{mosimage}Sunday Telegraph - Last week, in a courtroom off London's Chancery Lane, a group of senior politicians, including a former home secretary and a former law lord, attended the first week of hearings by a High Court judge into one of the most baffling scandals of contemporary politics. They were among 35 members of both Houses of Parliament, from all parties, who have appealed to the Proscribed Organisations Appeal Commission against the insistence of the Government that the People's Mojahedin Organisation of Iran (PMOI) should be banned as a terrorist organisation.

Rule of law and due process are the bedrock upon which all liberty and justice are based.  Throughout history, untold numbers of brave men and women have paid a dear price in effort, fortune, and even life itself, to bequeath to us the rule of law. Unfortunately, through neglect and design, if not protected, the rule of law and all those values which it protects and we hold dear can be undermined. 

Press Association - The British Government was today accused of siding with the mullahs in Iran rather than with the “just” resistance movement of the Iranian people. Tory MP Brian Binley spoke out at a Westminster meeting of the British Parliamentary Committee for Iran Freedom, at which Britain was accused of trying to undermine the ruling of the European Court of Justice to remove the PMOI from the EU’s terrorist list.
