NCRI - Hadad Adel, a member of Iran’s Expediency Council, delivered a speech on June 1, 2017 targeting Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and his remarks during the election campaign.
“Was this a wise decision to say people don’t want someone who has signed 38 years of [execution] and prison? One shouldn’t attack his rival like that,” he said.
NCRI - The most recent consequences of the gang clashes following the astronomical frauds during the sham presidential election are threats to eliminate Rouhani, the regime’s president and attacks against the official television, affiliated to Khamenei.
Javad Abtahi member of Majlis: “I warn the Judiciary to handle the reports of the election’s contravention with firmness and without connivance. If the governor, governor-general or other authority, has acted over his jurisdiction, misusing his position and powers, he shall be immediately put on trial and the result should be announced to the people.
NCRI - Iranian government spokesman Bahram Ghasemi responded to recent remarks stated by former presidential candidate Ebrahim Raisi.
“It is not right to use terms such as election engineering. The entire election process was carried out under the Guardian Council’s supervision,” he said.
NCRI - Ebrahim Raisi, one of the main perpetrators of the 1988 massacre and a candidate in the recent sham presidential election in Iran, delivered a speech on Sunday in Mashhad, northeast Iran, lashing his remarks at President Hassan Rouhani.
“The government must set aside this begging foreign policy. The fact that you send a message to the enemy that our country’s treasury is empty is wrong. To say everything is dependent on the nuclear deal, even the people’s drinking water, is wrong…” he said.
NCRI - Around a month after the sudden sacking of the Azad University dean, the son of former president Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani was also set aside.
The order for his sacking was issued by Ali Akbar Velayati, the current dean of Azad University, according to Yaser Rafsanjani, and he was informed through a message.
NCRI - Hossein Shariatmadari, representative of Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei in Kayhan daily, questioned Hassan Rouhani’s credibility as president for rallying votes for himself during the sham election by saying 38 years of execution and prison has been ruling the mullahs’ regime.
He accused all of the state and Khomeini (former Iranian regime founder) to crimes, he added.
NCRI - Attacking Hassan Rouhani following his victory in regime’s presidential election, the Revolutionary Guards’ Fars news agency writes on May 20, 2017 “it’s Rouhani’s skill to communicate the Sex Segregation Directive to organizations and offices, meanwhile explicitly announce that he’s against sex segregation, accusing his rivals of trying to set up walls between women and men.”
Britain’s Sunday Telegraph in an editorial on May 21 accused the Iranian regime of acting as a “rogue state”. The leading article pointed to the regime’s human rights abuses and pursuit of terrorism.
The editorial furthermore brought up the issue of the 1988 massacre of political prisoners in Iran.
NCRI - With the election façade coming to an end in Iran and the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei claiming victory – based on rigging the number of votes in the millions – will the divides amongst the regime’s senior ranks ease?
Amir Mohebian, a politician and theoretician of Khamenei’s faction, claims the election results prove there is no rift amongst the ruling elite and Iran’s populace.
