Ian Mearns Addresses Online Event on Iran Regime’s Terrorist Threats

Ian Mearns, MP, addressed an online event on October 15, 2020, on the Iranian regime’s terrorism and how it undermines global security.

The event, hosted by the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI). Members of Parliament of the U.K. and Irish politicians joined the online conference. Also, many Iranians supporters of the MEK and the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI)from various countries participated in the event. They focused on the fact that the Iran’s regime is a critical threat to global security, which is especially true considering the mullahs’ terror plots in Europe.

The event came in the wake of new threats by the regime’s incarcerated diplomat-terrorist Assadollah Assadi. Assadi, who arrested following the regime’s foiled bomb plot against the NCRI’s “Free Iran” gathering in 2018 in Paris, threatened Belgian authorities with attacks by the mullahs’ proxy groups if he is found guilty.

The foiled bomb plot in 2018 and Assadi’s threats once again underline the need for European countries to take firm action against the mullahs’ regime.

Ian Mearns, MP, in the Iranian opposition NCRI online conference—October 15, 2020

Dear friends, President Elect Mrs. Rajavi, thank you for inviting me to your gathering. My name is Ian Mearns, and I am the Member of Parliament for Gateshead in Northeast England. I’m here to express solidarity with the brave Iranian people, the Iranians in diaspora, and the Iranian resistance movement, who suffer enormously at the hands of the theocratic dictatorship in Iran. You’re at the forefront of a struggle against the oppressive, murderous, barbaric, fundamentalist regime in Iran, which is not only a threat to your future and your country, but also to the entire world with its destabilizing interference across the region, and its undoubted support for terrorism. 

The human rights situation in Iran is frightening. The situation does not need further explanation. The atrocities conducted by the regime are well documented, but in recent months, we’ve witnessed further alarming developments. With an intensified clamp down on support as of the opposition, the PMOI, political prisoners and activist insider inside Iran as the popular dissent against the excesses of the regime. They fear more nationwide protests similar to those, to challenge their grip on power in November last year. In the last years, individuals are responsible for decades of oppression and atrocities have been moved to great acquisitions of power, the new parliament speaker or the head of judiciary, or evidence of that. You are continuing the crucial fight for democracy and you’re in inalienable rights despite the regime’s brutality and propaganda campaigns. 

It is time for the international community to acknowledge this struggle and stand with the people of Iran. That is why I’m calling on the UK Government to make sure that the upcoming resolution on human rights in Iran, which has become an annual tradition at the UN General Assembly must include a provision that demands the establishment of an independent international inquiry into the regime’s human rights abuses with the aim of bringing to justice those responsible. 

This annual resolution on Iran should not only condemn the regime’s human rights abuses, but also demand the regimes allows in uninvestigated the fact-finding mission into the country into the prisons to meet with political prisoners and detained protesters, as called for by the NCRI President Elect Mrs. Maryam Rajavi

We are meeting online to the current pandemic, but we are standing with you. Rest assured that my colleagues and I across parties in the UK Parliament will continue to push petition our government to take real steps to hold the regime to account and to demand accountability, justice unfreedom for the people of Iran.
