Women's Comitte of NCRI adds: Qerchak Prison that is known as “End of the world” among female prisoners is a deserted poultry farm that was turned into a prison for women in 2011. The deplorable hygienic and nourishment condition and lack of medical care has turned this prison into a concentration camp. This prison holds around 40 women whose children are also held with them.
The Women’s Committee of the NCRI calls on international human rights agencies and defenders of women’s rights to dispatch an investigative mission to look into the condition of prisoners, especially female prisoners, in Iran.
According to Women's Comittee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran June 4th, the Iranian regime’s henchmen executed two female prisoners on May 30 in Qerchak Prison in Varamin. One of them was Fatemeh Mehrabani, 39, married with two children, who had spent five years in Iranian regime’s prisons before execution. Prior to their execution, they had been transferred to solitary confinement.

The Iranian resistance on its June 6 statement said: over 20 prisoners in Ghezel Hessar Prison of Karaj were transferred to solitary confinement in preparation for their execution. The special guards of the prison battered and injured a number of these prisoners who resisted and forcibly transferred them to the solitary confinement. The prisoners were not even given time to bid farewell to their cellmates.
Additionally, on the previous day, 7 prisoners condemned to death were transferred to solitary confinement in Adel-Abad Prison in Shiraz.

- The Iranian regime hanged 19 prisoners on June 1 in the cities of Karaj and Urumia. 12 prisoners were collectively hanged in Ghezel Hessar Prison of Karaj. They had been transferred to solitary confinement on May 30 in preparation for their death sentences. One of the prisoners lost his life in the solitary confinement before the hanging due to a heart attack. Families of those hanged gathered in front of the prison to receive the bodies of their loved ones. A day earlier, the anti-riot prison guards in Ghezel Hessar attacked and battered prisoners on death row who had refused to eat in protest to the collective executions.
4 Kurdish prisoners in Darya Prison of Orumiyeh were also collectively hanged. Three of them were cousins.

On June 3rd in the third week, in addition to obstructing entry of items necessary for maintenance and repair of the infrastructures, the Iraqi forces barred entry of basic necessities such as kitchen and hygiene equipments to the Iranian residents of Camp Liberty in Iraq.

They also condemened the surge in wave of executions in Iran and annoucned their support for the up comming Iranian resistance annual gathereing in Paris on June 13, 2015.

220 European MPs have signed a statement expressing solidarity and support for Maryam Rajavi ’s 10-Point Plan for freedom and democracy in Iran.
In the statement sent to EU Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini the MEPs said: “We express our solidarity with the ten-point plan of the Iranian opposition leader Maryam Rajavi, which calls for a democratic pluralistic republic based on universal suffrage, freedom of expression, abolition of torture and death penalty, separation of church and state, a non-nuclear Iran, an independent judicial system, rights for minorities, peaceful coexistence in the region, gender equality and commitment to Universal Declaration of Human Rights.”
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi is the president-elect of the National Council of Resistance or Iran ( NCRI ) a broad coalition of democratic Iranian organizations, groups, and personalities.
The MEPs condemned gross human rights violations in Iran and called on Iranian regime to “end the executions, free political prisoners, stop the repression of women and respect the rights and freedoms of the Iranian people.”
With regards to the nuclear talks on the Iranian regime’s nuclear program the statement said: “Iran needs to adhere to all UN Security Council resolutions with regard to its nuclear program and it should respond to all outstanding IAEA questions while allowing intrusive inspections of all its military and non-military sites whether declared or undeclared.”
The signatories expressed their ‘growing concern’ about the ‘destructive meddling of Iran in the region.
“Iran is at the heart of the crisis in this region and not part of the solution. If fundamentalism and extremism is to be uprooted in this region, Iran’s destructive influence and interference should end.”
The statement highlighted the suppressive measures and the siege that is imposed on Iranian dissidents in Camp Liberty in Iraq.

The Hill reported on June 03, 2015 that; for years, the conventional wisdom has been that Iran and North Korea have long cooperated in missile technology, giving the perception of not so dangerous of an alliance. That was until last week. In yet another groundbreaking revelation, Iran’s main opposition movement, the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK) provided information that Iran and North Korea have been engaged in extensive exchange of information and visits by experts on nuclear weapons and nuclear warhead design, as recently as April 2015.
The MEK, based on information obtained by its network inside Iran, provided a detailed account of a visit to North Korea in 2013 by Tehran’s top nuclear weapons experts headed by elusive Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, who was present during the last nuclear test conducted by North Korea.
A seven-member North Korean delegation, comprised of experts in nuclear warhead design and various parts of ballistic missiles including guidance systems, spent the last week of April in Iran. This was the third such nuclear and missile team to visit Iran in 2015. The next delegation is scheduled to secretly arrive in Iran in June and will be comprised of nine experts, according to the same MEK sources.
That Tehran continues to closely engage with North Korea, a country that cheated its way into making a nuclear weapon, all the while pledging that it would not do so, should be an additional cause for alarm. It should be a red flag for the P5+1 countries as they continue their negotiations with Iran in Vienna and Geneva with only days left before the June 30 deadline to sign an agreement.
