Gholamreza Mesbahi Moghadam, a member of the regime’s Expediency Council, an advisory board to Iranian Regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, said:
” We are facing a strange and difficult coronavirus crisis. We should put aside our political difference. On the other hand, we are facing sanctions and low oil prices,”
Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) said:
” I urge the World Health Organization to directly oversee the dire conditions of the medical staff in Iran, and submit a report on that to the UN Secretary-General and the UN Security Council.”
“The clerical regime’s failure to release prisoners, especially political prisoners, in the present conditions in Iran is tantamount to a major crime against humanity, and Khamenei and other regime leaders must be held accountable for it.”
In a message to the Iranian people regarding the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Mrs. Rajavi said:
” In these difficult and troubling days, when because of the mullahs’ criminal cover-up and inaction, the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) has endangered the lives of our people, I urge you to strengthen our national solidarity to prevent further spread of the infection, to protect the lives of our compatriots, and to protest and confront the detested ruling regime.”

As the coronavirus continues to claim more lives in Iran, reports indicate that instead of taking necessary measures, the Iran regime, in line with its criminal cover-up and downplaying of this crisis, has declared an unofficial martial law across Iran.
Reports and footages from Iran, revealed by the MEK Iran, show the Iranian regime dispatching military troops to different parts of Iran to counter possible public outrage over the regime’s inaction in the face of the coronavirus outbreak.
In another event, the MEK Iran sources in Iran reported that, on Friday, March 13, 2020, the defiant youth, targeted the mullahs’ Ministry of Justice in Vali-e Asr street in Tehran, where the office of Alireza Avaei, the criminal Justice Minister, is located.
