The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran) reported that the members of the European Parliament on the verge of the Free Iran World Summit, supporting the uprising of the Iranian people and condemn human rights violations, and terrorism, by the clerical regime in Iran.
Statement by European legislators on Iran
The members of the European Parliament, by issuing a statement express their deep concern over the continuing human rights violations in Iran.
The failure of the United Nations and the international community to address the worrying human rights situation, including the killing of 30,000 political prisoners in 1988, has made the mullahs more courageous and the human rights situation worse.
The EU’s decision to impose sanctions
The European Union’s decision to impose sanctions on those involved in the November 2019 crackdown, which killed at least 1,500 people, in April 2021 is the first step in the right direction, which is expected to lead to further action.
During Rouhani’s presidency, 118 women were executed, making Iran the number one executioner in the world. We stand with Iranian women who have been at the forefront of all protests and have bravely confronted all widespread repressive measures against them.
Terrorism on EU soil against its opponents
We (The members of the EU Parliament) are concerned about Iran’s (regime) use of terrorism on European soil against its opponents, and in this regard, the necessary response from the European Union is necessary.
An Iranian diplomat and his accomplices were convicted in Belgium in February 2021 of plotting to bomb the 2018 annual meeting of the opposition National Council of Resistance in Paris, where hundreds of European, American, and international representatives, former ministers, and many dignitaries were present.
Mullahs regime involved in terrorism
Among the participants present, who could have been killed or seriously injured by the bomb, showed that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (government) of Tehran is as involved in terrorism as the Ministry of Intelligence and its security.
Iran’s nuclear weapons program
We (The members of the EU Parliament) express our serious concern about Iran’s nuclear weapons program (regime) and its denial, deception, and duplicity.
Regime change in Iran
We (The members of the EU Parliament) believe that the missing link in EU policy is the disregard for objective conditions in Iran and the Iranian people’s desire for freedom and democracy.
In nationwide protests over the past few years, the Iranian people have clearly rejected the ruling dictatorship and expressed their desire for real change; The result is achieved by the Iranian people and their resistance movement.
The 10-point plan of Maryam Rajavi
The 10-point plan of President Maryam Rajavi (elected by the Iranian Resistance), first presented by her in the Council of Europe and the European Parliament, calls for the establishment of a democratic republic based on free and fair elections, separation of religion and state, gender equality and non-discrimination. It is against religious and ethnic minorities’ discrimination and stands for a non-nuclear Iran that deserves our support.
We (The members of the EU Parliament) call on the European Union to take a firm stand against the Iranian regime, to prioritize human rights, and to hold those responsible for human rights abuses and terrorism accountable.
We call on the European Union to use its new human rights sanctions mechanism, the European Magnitsky Act, to sanction human rights violators in Iran. We also call on the European Union to take adequate action against the Iranian regime’s use of terrorism in Europe.
Finally, we call on the European Union and its member states to stand by the Iranian people and their desire to respect human rights, freedom, and democracy.
