In the meantime, according to most reports published by the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI, Mujahedin-e Khalq or MEK) the death rate is accelerating with more than 2600 deaths to date.

The most important use of face masks according to medical authorities is to issue them to those who have COVID-19 so as to protect the further transmission of the virus. They are of little use as a protective device for those who want to protect themselves from getting the virus unless they are a very specialized design.  Despite this, the Iranian regime is allegedly hoarding both masks and disinfectant, therefore, denying them to those who most need them to help reduce transmission rates.

Coronavirus has been around for several months, but the Iranian regime has taken little or no action and virtually completely ignored the seriousness of the virus.

Iranian regime’s inaction increases the death toll of the coronavirus infection dramatically

Coronavirus has been around for several months, but the Iranian regime has taken little or no action and virtually completely ignored the seriousness of the virus. So much so that people who have recently visited Iran have unknowingly brought the virus back to their home countries like Australia and New Zealand who have traced coronavirus victims to stays in Iran. It is only just recently that the regime is coming to terms with the severity of the outbreak and that it isn’t just the common cold. Because of the inhumane policies and lack of foresight of the cruel self-centered regime, there have been many fatalities from the virus.

According to the report, regime officials were informed that the virus had reached Iran two weeks before the February 11th anniversary of the 1979 revolution that swept the mullahs into power. Regime leaders chose to conceal the outbreak to boost participation in the pro-regime anniversary march and the Majlis (parliamentary) elections.

Regime leaders chose to conceal the outbreak to boost participation in the pro-regime anniversary march and the Majlis (parliamentary) elections.

A new report from the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) details the Coronavirus epidemic in Iran and the corruption, deception, and incompetence that have created a public health crisis. The report describes how the regime’s decisions regarding the deadly virus have endangered both the Iranian people and the world from the moment the first case was reported in China to the present day.

Political Prisoner in Iran Denied Medical Treatment as Health Condition Worsens

MEK Iran: Political Prisoner in Iran Denied Medical Treatment as Health Condition Worsens

Political Prisoner in Iran Denied Medical Treatment as Health Condition Worsens

The Greater Tehran Penitentiary is known for its poor sanitation and there are huge numbers of prisoners crammed into very small spaces. The prisoners face many health-related risks on a normal basis, but with the spread of Coronavirus, the risk has become significantly higher.

Soheil Arabi, a political prisoner in the Greater Tehran Penitentiary, has been denied medical treatment and his health is deteriorating. He is in severe pain and he has been asking for medication – to no avail. He also requires surgery because of a physical injury and has an infection that is spreading.

Soheil Arabi, a political prisoner in the Greater Tehran Penitentiary, has been denied medical treatment and his health is deteriorating. He is in severe pain and he has been asking for medication – to no avail. He also requires surgery because of a physical injury and has an infection that is spreading.

The Greater Tehran Penitentiary is known for its poor sanitation and there are huge numbers of prisoners crammed into very small spaces. The prisoners face many health-related risks on a normal basis, but with the spread of Coronavirus, the risk has become significantly higher.

Last year, it was reported that Soheil Arabi had been in serious danger after suffering massive blood loss after having a broken nose. His nose was broken by prison authorities during an interrogation at the IRGC-controlled ward 2A and he was severely beaten.

Soheil Arabi was sentenced to death in 2013, but a few years later it was reduced to several years imprisonment and two years of mandatory study on the topic of Islamic theology. He was charged with insulting religious leaders in postings on social media.

Human rights organizations have called on the Iranian government to vacate the prisoner’s sentence, with many expressing their shock and disgust that the people of Iran risk imprisonment and the death penalty for issues related to the freedom of speech. Arabi is not the first prisoner in Iran that has been handed a death sentence for peacefully exercising his rights with regard to the freedom of expression.

Arabi has said that he was punished after “writing and publishing an article about the conditions of prisoners detained in ward 1 of the Greater Tehran Penitentiary”.

He explained that during an interrogation, a prison official kicked him violently in the testicles and when he regained consciousness he was in the hospital. A doctor explained to him that he had blunt force trauma and that he requires immediate surgery to remove one of his testicles. However, months passed and he was not granted the surgery he needed, meaning that infection took hold and has spread across his body, especially these legs.

Prison authorities in Iran take no responsibility for the health of the prisoners under their care and there are widespread reports that this is happening in prisons across the country, and political prisoners, in particular, are neglected and denied the most basic of health care.

There are major concerns in the country with regard to the spread of the Coronavirus. The prisoners of Iran are at particular risk because of the close confinement that they are subject to, as well as the poor sanitary conditions. The regime’s cover-up of the health crisis is despicable and it is becoming clearer and clearer why the people want regime change.

Compared to the response by governments across the world, the Iranian regime has let down the people in one of the most serious ways possible. The already vulnerable people have been once again disappointment by the regime’s reaction.

The spread of COVID-19 throughout Iran has led to questions about the source of the outbreak.

MEK Iran: The IRGC’s Role in the Coronavirus Epidemic in Iran

The spread of COVID-19 throughout Iran has led to questions about the source of the outbreak.

Iran’s Mahan Airways, owned by the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), ignored the threat and continued its normal schedule of flights to and from China, leading to public outrage. The airline acknowledged the flights in an Instagram post in early February after facing pressure to explain itself.

The spread of COVID-19 throughout Iran has led to questions about the source of the outbreak. Other countries affected by the virus have been able to trace its origin through travel records and exposure to infected patients. However, the Iranian regime’s decision to conceal the outbreak for several weeks, along with its refusal to suspend flights to and from China, has made this impossible. The combination of greed and corruption have led to a nationwide health emergency that threatens the wellbeing of every citizen in Iran.

Under pressure of public opinion, Mahan Airways acknowledged on its Instagram page that it had nine flights to the destination of China.

When the novel Coronavirus outbreak in China was first reported, the international community quickly mobilized to limit the spread of the deadly and highly contagious disease from beyond China’s borders. Numerous airlines halted flights to China, and several countries enacted travel bans.

Iran’s Mahan Airways, owned by the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), ignored the threat and continued its normal schedule of flights to and from China, leading to public outrage. The airline acknowledged the flights in an Instagram post in early February after facing pressure to explain itself.

On February 9, 2020, the state-run IRNA news agency wrote: “Mahan Airways has confirmed four cargo flights to Shanghai and Beijing and also five-passenger flights after China flights were ordered to stop. Now it has stated that the company has no scheduled flight to China, and possible flights to China are based on a civil aviation license.”

Bahram Parsaei, a member of Majlis (the regime’s Parliament) questioned the wisdom of allowing continued flights to China, suggesting that the decision to do so would lead to an epidemic of COVID-19 in Iran.

In a February interview with the ISNA news agency, he said: “After the outbreak of the coronavirus, the World Health Organization had announced an urgent situation for the whole world, and we were witnessing the management of the issue around the world. But unfortunately, by any inexcusable reason, the flights of an Iranian airline to China continued and even the passengers of other countries were displaced with this Iranian airline. The warnings were not taken seriously and the negligence is very clear.

“The profit-seeking of an internal airline or wrong policies of the Aviation Organization and also not taking seriously the World Health Organization warnings was the cause of the coronavirus outbreak in Iran. Considering that no cases were reported from neighboring countries, we can conclude that the virus entered the country through external flights,” Parsaei added.

Profit over Lives

The Iranian regime finally acknowledged its first case of COVID-19 on February 19th, several weeks after it had become widespread (the MEK reported on the suspected coverup of the virus nearly two weeks before the first case was recorded), but as recently as February 23, 2020, the government still refused to step in and shut down flights to China.

On February 23, 2020, the Chinese ambassador to Tehran tweeted: “In a meeting with Arabnejad the Director-General of Mahan Airlines, he said they are willing to continue cooperation with China.”

Mohammad Hossein Ghorbani, Vice President of Majlis Health and Treatment Commission, said that Mahan Air was warned to ground its flights, but he qualified his remark by adding that the airline is a private company and did not want to suffer financial losses.

The regime also shipped domestically produced hospital masks to China to help with its outbreak, according to a recent article in the New York Times. While other countries were “quietly stockpiling” masks and other supplies, Tehran bragged about sending supplies to China, even after regime officials became aware that the virus had reached Iran’s borders and was rapidly spreading. As a result, there is a massive shortage of masks and other medical supplies and equipment for Iran’s own citizens.

At every step, the regime has placed profit and political expediency over the health and well-being of its people. Not a single decision has been made with the Iranian people in mind. The mullahs have repeatedly told state-run media that the MEK is making up or exaggerating its reporting of the Coronavirus, but the people in Iran can see with their own eyes what is true. People outside of Iran can look at the faulty numbers coming from Iran and see that the regime is lying. Infectious disease specialists all agree that the regime is concealing the extent of the epidemic in Iran, and health officials are concerned that the secrecy involved in reporting the epidemic, along with the profound mistrust of the regime by the Iranian people, will worsen an already dire situation.

AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL: 23 CHILDREN KILLED IN NOVEMBER UPRISINGS IN IRAN

Amnesty International: 23 Children Killed in November Uprisings

AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL: 23 CHILDREN KILLED IN NOVEMBER UPRISINGS IN IRAN

They Shot Our Children:’ Killings of Minors in Iran’s November 2019 Protests details the illegal and brutal actions taken by the Iranian regime against its citizens during last year’s protests, which included using lethal force on children as young as 8 to 12 years old.

On Wednesday, Amnesty International published a report describing the brutal deaths of at least 23 children at the hands of Iranian regime security forces during the November Uprisings last year. ‘They Shot Our Children:’ Killings of Minors in Iran’s November 2019 Protests details the illegal and brutal actions taken by the Iranian regime against its citizens during last year’s protests, which included using lethal force on children as young as 8 to 12 years old.

23 Children Killed in November Uprisings

22 of the victims were boys ranging in age from 12 to 17, and one was a girl who appeared to be between the ages of 8 and 12.

According to the Amnesty report, 22 of the victims were boys ranging in age from 12 to 17, and one was a girl who appeared to be between the ages of 8 and 12. At least 22 of the victims were killed by live ammunition by security forces who illegally opened fire into crowds of unarmed protesters and bystanders during the uprisings.

“In recent months an increasingly gruesome picture has emerged of the extent to which Iranian security forces unlawfully used lethal force to crush last year’s nationwide protests. However, it is still devastating to learn that the number of children who fell victim to this brutality is so shockingly high,” said Philip Luther, Research and Advocacy Director for the Middle East and North Africa at Amnesty International in a briefing about the report.

“There must be independent and impartial investigations into these killings, and those suspected of ordering and carrying them out must be prosecuted in fair trials,” he emphasized.

Amnesty gathered evidence for its report from a number of sources, including videos, photos, death certificates, eyewitnesses accounts, family interviews, and information from local human rights activists and journalists. The report found that ten children died from bullet wounds to the head or chest, which backs up earlier claims from MEK sources that security forces used kill shots when firing on crowds.

Two children died from massive trauma, according to their death certificates. One of the children suffered a “crushed brain and a shattered skull.” The other died from “extensive internal bleeding, and a pierced heart and lung.”

In another case, some reports say that the child was beaten to death by security forces, sustaining massive head trauma in the process. Conflicting reports say that the child was fatally shot multiple times in the face at close range by metal pellets.

The children’s deaths occurred between November 16-18, leading Luther to remark: “The fact that the vast majority of the children’s deaths took place over just two days is further evidence that Iranian security forces went on a killing spree to quash dissent at any cost.”

The report also describes the regime’s attempts to cover up the violent deaths by refusing to hand over the children’s phones to their parents, handing over bodies over victims wrapped in shrouds minutes before their funerals, demanding that families bury their loved ones quickly and quietly, and threatening to kill parents’ surviving children if they spoke out.

“As if the loss of their loved ones was not cruel enough an experience to bear, families of children killed during the protests are facing a ruthless campaign of harassment to intimidate them from speaking out,” said Luther.

According to the MEK, 1,500 people were killed by regime security forces during the November Uprisings and another 12,000 were arrested. MEK sources have reported that many of those arrested during the protests have been tortured.

Since the Iranian regime has been in power in Iran, it has told non-stop lies and has deceived both its own citizens and the international community time and time again. In fact, the regime was founded on a lie. When Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini took power, he told the people of Iran that he was sent to be God’s representative on Earth with regards to the establishment of the absolute rule of the clergy (or Velayat-e-faqih).
