In correspondence with the British Secretary of State, James Cleverly, the parliamentary group known as the British Committee for Iran Freedom (BCFIF) has directed its attention toward the Judiciary of Iran’s clerical regime. This comes in response to the regime’s announcement on July 29, 2023, regarding the indictment of 104 members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), a pro-democracy opposition group.
The statement underscores the regime’s strategy, which involves a dual approach of escalating domestic suppression and carrying out executions of opposition members. Simultaneously, the regime seeks to exploit these indictments as a means to influence Interpol and instill fear among Iranian opposition figures residing abroad.
The BCFIF points out the regime’s history of presenting fabricated evidence to Western governments with the aim of curtailing the activities of the Iranian pro-democracy opposition.
It’s worth noting that this move by the regime coincides with the anniversary of the 1988 massacre, a tragic event in which approximately 30,000 political prisoners were executed due to their affiliation with the MEK.
