Mrs. Rajavi: Non-compliance with the court's verdict amounts to continuing appeasement of the mullahs' regime, but cannot save the regime from the winds of change in Iran
NCRI - The EU's Council of Ministers, acting at the behest of the mullahs' regime and simultaneous with talks between EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana and the Secretary for the regime's Supreme National Security Council Brig. Gen. Ali Larijani, and while bowing to pressure exerted by the United Kingdom, intends to maintain the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI) on the terrorist list. It is planning to announce its decision next week.
NCRI - In a press conference in Brussels on March 28, senior members of the European Parliament from different political groups condemned British and French insistence to defy the ruling of the European Communities' Court annulling terrorist designation of the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran. By exposing their efforts, they called for immediate implementation of the court ruling and removal of the PMOI from the terror list.

NCRI - The Iranian Resistance welcomes the decision by the British government to freeze "bilateral business" with the Iranian regime but considers it insufficient. Severing all ties with the mullahs' regime and the imposition of comprehensive sanctions would be the only effective policy.
