Maryam Rajavi to the Grand Gathering in Paris:
A year after nuclear deal, both factions fail at rescue, Iranian regime on the verge of being overthrown
NCRI - Jim Nicholson, a Member of the European Parliament from the United Kingdom, has welcomed the visit last month by the Iranian Resistance's President-elect Maryam Rajavi to the European Parliament.
Mr. Nicholson, who has supported freedom and democracy in Iran, said in a message that the human rights situation in Iran must not be overlooked.
Maryam Rajavi: Iranian people want regime change in Iran
During Rouhani's tenure, the Iranian people have gained only added executions, squandering of unfrozen assets after lifting of sanctions, and further meddling in the region
NCRI - Richard Ashworth, a Member of the European Parliament from the United Kingdom, has reiterated that the Iranian regime’s president Hassan Rouhani is not a ‘moderate’ as he claims to be.
Mr. Ashworth, who is a strong supporter of freedom and democracy in Iran, pointed to over 1000 executions carried out in Iran in 2015 under Rouhani’s watch.
NCRI – The terrorist Quds Force of the Iranian regime’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) in a ludicrous report about the death of a smuggler and four of his companions in Iran’s Sistan and Baluchistan Province (south-east Iran), claimed that this individual was a former member of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK) who was involved in armed robbery, rape, and murder.
Rouhani’s visit to Austria was called off due to the Austrian government’s refusal to cancel PMOI demonstration
Following contradictory remarks by the Iranian regime leaders and state media on the reason for calling off Rouhani's visit to Austria, the speaker of the regime’s Parliament Ali Larijani announced on April 2 that the visit had been called off because of a demonstration by the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK). He voiced support for Rouhani's decision to cancel the trip and said: “The Austrian government had ‘ignored’ requests by Iranian President’s security team to revoke the demonstration permit for the PMOI during the visit.”
“Hassan Rouhani is no moderate. He is no reformer. He is a fascist and a killer. He is not welcome here,” Struan Stevenson, former president of the European Parliament’s Delegation for Relations with Iraq, told the thousands of supporters of the Iranian opposition in Thursday’s rally in Paris protesting the visit by the president of the clerical regime to France.
“We Europeans should be on the side of the people of Iran. We should be on the side of freedom, not oppression. We should not deal with tyrants.”
