Xiyue Wang, a fourth-year history graduate student, travelled to Iran in 2016 to do research for his dissertation and was imprisoned by the Regime for spying.

London, 5 Sep - Amnesty International launched a campaign to stop the Iranian Regime from destroying one of the mass graves in which some of the over 30,000 victims of the 1988 massacre are buried.

The grave in question, located in the southern city of Ahvaz, is of immediate concern because construction near the area has already begun and Amnesty is concerned about losing evidence which could bring the murderers, who are still being sheltered by the Regime, to justice.

London, 7 Sep - Iran has an extensive network of clandestine spies and recent reports suggest that dozens of journalists are being threatened and blackmailed. Their aim is to make sure that there is only positive coverage of Iran in global media.

It is estimated that at least 50 international journalists (and / or their family members) have been on the
receiving-end of threats from Iranian spies in the past year alone.

London, 4 Sep - A British politician spoke out about the deplorable human rights situation in Iran and called on the EU Foreign Policy chief to condemn the horrific human rights violations as well, at a London rally on Saturday.

Struan Stevenson, former chair of European Parliament’s official Delegation for Relations with Iraq, said: “The EU’s policy on Iran is totally flawed and it is nowhere more evident than the attitude of its foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini regarding the despicable situation of human rights in that country.”

Mogherini recently attended the inauguration of the supposedly moderate Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, despite the tragic nature of human rights in Iran.

London, 7 Sep - The Iranian Regime has reimposed the death penalty of a religious leader after the original death sentence was overturned by the Supreme Court, a representative for the judiciary said on Sunday.

Gholamhossein Mohseni Ejei, the spokesman for the judiciary, said: “[Mohammad Ali Taheri’s] case was sent back to court and tried with the presence of a lawyer and various advisers and the judge has again reached.”

According to the Regime-affiliated news agency ISNA, he also said that the sentence could be appealed.

London, 3 Sep - A prominent Iranian journalist, who was a member of the semi-opposition political alliance of "nationalist-religious", has lost his right eye and part of the right side of his face; the result of being denied adequate medical care whilst imprisoned by the Regime.

Alireza Rajaei, who is recovering from a complicated surgery to treat his sinus cancer, was sentenced to four years’ imprisonment in 2011 on bogus national security charges and for belonging to the Nationalist-Religious alliance.

The alliance is deemed to be “deviant” by the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei for being too Western-inclined.

British politicians, dignitaries, and activists gathered in London on Saturday to call on the UK government to lead the world in setting up an independent committee to investigate the 1988 Iranian massacre, in which 30,000 political prisoners were executed, and bring those responsible to justice.

London, 3 Sep - The Iranian Regime is being heavily condemned by the US and the Iranian Resistance for its death sentence against spiritual leader Mohammad Ali Taheri.

The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) released a statement, which read: “Taheri has committed no crime, possessed no weapon, and based on this regime’s own medieval and cruel laws cannot even be charged with the vague charges of moharebe or mofsed fel-arz (corruption on earth).”
