The British Committee for Iran Freedom denounces recent comments by Iran’s judiciary chief Gholamhossein Mohseni Ejei revealing regime’s plan to seek the arrest and extradition of members of the pro-democracy opposition, the People’s Mojahedin Organisation of Iran (PMOI/MEK), on bogus charges and baseless accusations.

More than 525 cross-party MPs and Peers from across the political spectrum say the UK and international partners should support the popular struggle for a secular and democratic Iran and endorse the democratic alternative put forward by the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).

The cross-party initiative which addressed shortcomings with the current UK policy on Iran was announced at a conference in Parliament on Tuesday, attended virtually by the NCRI President-elect, Mrs Maryam Rajavi.

The British Committee for Iran Freedom strongly opposes the Belgian Government’s decision to release the Iranian diplomat, Assadolah Assadi, convicted of terrorism and allow him to return to Iran before serving his full sentence.

The British Committee for Iran Freedom urges the British government to condemn these executions and work with international partners to hold the regime to account for its crimes

The British Committee for Iran Freedom strongly condemns the execution of three protesters in Iran today. This latest wave of executions, bringing the total to 112 in the past month, is a clear human rights violation and a desperate attempt by the regime in Iran to intimidate the public and prevent them from protesting against its oppressive policies.
