The Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution of Germany has published its latest annual report. This text unveiled various activities by Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS), Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) Quds Force and the Iranian Embassy in Germany. The main targets pursued by Iran’s secret services are the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) and National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), the report adds.
Iran’s nuclear agreement with the West has rendered no changes in this regime’s approach regarding its opposition, the report adds. Quite the opposite, Iran’s spying and intelligence activities aimed at quelling its dissidents have increased.
In 2016 and 2017 a Berlin branch court ruled against two operatives affiliated to the MOIS and IRGC Quds Force, sentencing them the first to 28 months and the latter to 51 months behind bars. Details unveiled regarding the spying operation have raised suspicions of a possible terrorist plot in the making.
The Iranian Resistance calls for the expulsion of MOIS and Quds Force spies and operatives from Germany, including those working currently in Iran’s Embassy and those continuing their activities under the cover of various associations and front companies.
The German government must prevent the use of its soil by the mullahs’ spies and terrorists.
Designating the IRGC as a foreign terrorist organization is an effective move to confront the threats of spying and terrorist measures in Europe, and it is high time that Germany joins such an initiative.
The absence of a firm measure in the face of the Iranian secret service’s activities not only places Iranian dissidents and refugees in danger, but also threatens the very security of Germany.
