In an article from the National Council for the Resistance of Iran (NCRI) on September 15, they report on The British Parliamentary Committee for Iran Freedom (BPCIF)’s Statement regarding the relocation of the members and supporters of the Poeple’s Mojahedin Organisation of Iran (PMOI) to Europe.
“… finally, all members and supporters of the organisation, have officially been accepted by the government of Albania and all have been moved to that country,” they said, adding that, “today counts as a great and historic day for the democratic opposition and resistance of the Iranian people and all of us as supporters of this liberation movement.”
After thirteen years of enduring 8 missile attacks first at Camp Ashraf, and then, again, at Camp Liberty, 141 innocent people are dead, hundreds are wounded and 7 hostages have been taken. To date, there is no information regarding the hostages, 6 of whom are women.
“The regime’s intention was either to force the PMOI members to surrender or the complete destruction of the PMOI organisation. Despite the Iranian regime’s expansive and destructive efforts, thanks to their own heroic resistance in Camps Ashraf and Liberty, as well as their countless international campaigns the Iranian resistance was victorious,” said the BPCIF in their statement.
They also acknowledged the tireless efforts and effective campaigning led by Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the NCRI, which they called “decisive in turning the international balance of power in favour of the Iranian people and their Resistance and against the religious dictatorship in Iran.”
In their statement, they also took the opportunity to “declare our full support for the recently launched international campaigns and lawsuits against those responsible for the massacre of more than 30 thousand political prisoners in the summer of 1988, especially with the release of audio tapes of Ayatollah Montazeri, Khomeini’s successor, undermine the foundations of society and severely shook the regime.” They added that, “A new era has begun in which we can clearly see the tides are turning fast towards a regime change in Iran and the fruition of the will of Iranian people for establishment human rights, and gender and religious equality and democracy.”
On July 9, 2016, the NCRI held its annual “Free Iran” convention in Paris. An all-party parliamentary delegation from both Houses of Parliament attended, joining representatives from the European Union, Unites States and political leaders from around the world, along with more than 100,000 supporters of the Iranian Resistance. There they released the statement signed by more than 400 British parliamentarians in support of the Iranian Resistance and Mrs Rajavi’s 10 point plan was announced.
“Time has undoubtedly come for the British government, to put a halt on their appeasement policy vis- a-vis the autocratic dictatorship in Iran. Time has come to stand with millions and millions of the Iranian people and join their fight for peace and democracy in Iran,” said the British Parliamentary Committee for Iran Freedom, on September 9, 2016.
