The National Council of Resistance of Iran said in a statement in June 16, 2008 - Tow men identified as Alireza Barahooi and Youness Rahmondost were executed by the mullahs’ regime in the south-eastern cities of Zahedan and Chabahar respectively, the state-run news agency Fars reported on Monday. The Iranian regime has sent 16 prisoners to gallows in past ten days. Among them was a 17-year-old Mohammad Hassan-Zadeh in Sanandaj prison, northwest Iran. The boy was 14 at time of the alleged crime. Execution of juveniles is a clear breach of the international covenants by the ruling clerics in Iran. The mullahs’ regime has stepped up arbitrary executions to combat the growing public revulsion against it at home and international isolation abroad.

In an official letter to Iraqi Parliament, the People’s Mujahidin Organization of Iran (PMOI), underscoring the democratic rights of responding vis-à-vis false and incorrect information and claims, and considering the demonizing campaign of the Iranian regime against its opposition, asked to attend the Iraqi Parliament’s open session in order to clarify before the honest Iraqi people by presenting evidences and documents.
This comes after Ali Dabbagh’s repeated remarks (the spokesman of the Iraqi government) to extradited the opposition Mujahidin from Iraq. In a letter to the MNF-I Command, the Committee of Friends of a Free Iran in Sweden, condemned Ali Dabbagh’s remarks against the PMOI and wrote: Friends of Free Iran in Sweden whose members are jurists, academicians, parliamentarians and human rights activists was informed with serious concern that the Iraqi government’s spokesman has talked about the expulsion of the PMOI members from Iraq and has announced prohibition of any contacts with them. We are confident that these remarks are a reaction to signatures of 3 million Iraqi Shiites who have announced their support for the PMOI and oppose the Iranian regime’s meddling. Members of the PMOI are protected persons under 4th Geneva Convention and any displacement of them is violation of Humanitarian Law. We are sure that the Multi National Force in Iraq (MNF-I) respect the PMOI’s legal status and you give assurance too that any efforts of the Iraqi government for violation of rights of these persons will be faced with decisiveness.
