TEHRAN, Aug. 23 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh has condemned the trial of Iranian citizen Hamid Nouri in a Swedish court, saying that the Iranian terror group MKO is behind the whole fabricated case.

“What is going on in Sweden is a plot designed by the Monafeqin (the hypocrites as … Members of the Mojahedin Khalq Organization (MKO). Unfortunately, the Swedish court has paid attention to a series of fabricated stories, documents and testimonies, all by one group,” Khatibzadeh said on Monday talking to reporters.

The Iranian foreign ministry spokesman further recalled that the MKO was responsible for shedding the blood of 17,000 Iranian citizens and expressed regret over the holding of the tribunal in Sweden.

Khatibzadeh also stressed that Iran will use all diplomatic means to protect Hamid Nouri’s rights.

“What matters is that the Swedish court and the Swedish government should know that they have become part of a propaganda campaign led by the Monafeqin, and this is disgraceful for this state,” the spokesman concluded.

Iran’s President-elect Raisi addresses ties to mass executions

Published 21 Jun 2021

Tehran, Iran – Iran’s President-elect Ebrahim Raisi has for the first time addressed his links with the mass execution of political prisoners in 1988 when he was deputy prosecutor of Tehran.

Rights groups maintain that, shortly after the eight-year Iran-Iraq war ended, Raisi was one of the members of a so-called “death commission” that ordered the disappearance and execution of thousands of prisoners.

Many were reportedly members of the Mujaheddin-e-Khalq (MEK), an organisation pushing for regime change that is now based in Europe, which at the time led a military assault on Iranian soil despite the fact a United Nations-brokered ceasefire had taken hold.

Asked by Al Jazeera’s Assed Baig about the executions at a press conference on Monday, Raisi did not directly confirm or deny the allegations.

“Everything I’ve done in my time of holding office has been to defend human rights,” the hardline Muslim scholar said.

He added that he has dealt with “those who disrupted people’s rights and engaged in Daeshi and anti-security moves” in reference to the ISIL (ISIS) armed group.

“If a legal expert, a judge or a prosecutor has defended the rights of people and the security of the society, he must be lauded and encouraged for preserving the security of people against assaults and threats.”

Moreover, he said, as a prosecutor and in other capacities, he is “proud” that he always defended human rights, and promised he will continue to do so as president.

Amnesty International earlier this week renewed its call for Raisi to be put on trial for “crimes against humanity”.

Raisi is the first Iranian president to be subject to United States sanctions after the US designated him in 2019 for his role in the executions, in cracking down on public protests, and for ordering the hanging of individuals who were minors at the time they committed crimes.

He went on to say that he and Iran could now call out human rights violations by other countries – not the other way around – and called for “those that founded terrorist groups” to be prosecuted.

Nuclear deal

The Iranian president-elect also expanded on his position on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.

He reiterated the stance he announced during the presidential debates, namely that he supports the deal, but said the US must return to its commitments and first lift its unilateral sanctions imposed after abandoning the historic accord.

“The world must know that the situation has changed. To this day, ‘maximum pressure’ hasn’t worked on our people and so they must reconsider and return,” he said in reference to former President Donald Trump’s hawkish policy on Iran.

He added that his government’s foreign policy “doesn’t begin with JCPOA and won’t be limited to it” as it will include a balance of engaging with the world and the region.

“Whatever negotiation that ensures our national interests will be supported by us, but we will not tie our people’s economic situation to the negotiations and will not allow negotiations for the sake of negotiations,” Raisi said.

Asked if he would meet with US President Joe Biden, his answer was a simple “no”.

He also did not answer a question on whether he would keep the current negotiating team led by Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi, a veteran nuclear negotiator.

A sixth round of talks in Vienna to restore the accord ended on Sunday with delegates saying a final agreement is close but some key issues remain unsolved.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, who met with Raisi on Monday at the president-elect’s request to talk about the nuclear deal, said earlier this week he believes an agreement can be reached before Raisi assumes office in early August.

Raisi became Iran’s eighth president in an election on Friday that saw a turnout of 48.8 percent, the lowest since the 1979 revolution, after the disqualification of several rival candidates.

And void votes finished second for the first time since the establishment of the Islamic Republic.

Iran slams EU sanctions, calls out human rights violations

After the blacklisting of army commanders, Iran urges action over ‘violations’ of its citizens’ rights by EU states.

By  Maziar Motamedi

Tehran, Iran – In a strongly worded letter to the Council of the European Union, Iran formally protested against the blacklisting of several individuals and entities and what it says are European double standards on human rights in Iran.

The letter was written by the High Council of Human Rights of Iran – an entity under the country’s Supreme National Security Council currently headed by judiciary chief Ebrahim Raisi and comprised of several ministers – and handed to Portugal’s ambassador to Tehran Carlos Costa Neves as the country currently holds the presidency of the Council of the EU.

In response, Iran’s foreign ministry said it will immediately suspend talks with the EU on human rights and all resulting cooperation, including that on “terrorism”, illicit drugs, and refugees. It also traced “political intentions” behind the move and said is considering reciprocal sanctions.

In its letter, the Iranian human rights council condemns the EU for its policies that it says are “enforcing the illegal and oppressive sanctions” unilaterally imposed by the United States after it withdrew from Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal with world powers in May 2018.

The sanctions, which intensified only after the COVID-19 pandemic began in early 2020, have hampered imports of food and medicine, in addition to creating money transfer issues in buying coronavirus vaccines.

The letter says a number of EU member states have imposed “intentional damage on the health and wellbeing of the Iranian people, particularly children, women, the elderly, and persons with disability”.

For instance, it lists the names of more than a dozen children who died because of a lack of access to vital medicine to treat epidermolysis bullosa (EB), a rare medical condition that results in blistering of the skin and mucous membranes.

It also describes how several European countries refused to work or deal with Iranian firms on medicine, medical equipment, and vaccines, and says several airports have failed to provide services to Iranian passenger planes because of US sanctions.

The human rights council also condemns the fact that Iranian migrants and students have faced difficulties in opening bank accounts in European countries based on their nationality, and says several Iranian citizens are held in European prisons on “arbitrary” charges and have been mistreated in prison.

Moreover, it says the EU should have unequivocally condemned the January 2020 assassination of Iran’s top general Qassem Soleimani by the United States as a “clear example of state terrorism” that Iran believes was assisted by elements within the German government.

Among other things, the council also holds that a number of European countries continue to shelter members of the Mujahedin-e Khalq, which Iran recognises as a “terrorist organisation”, and provided Saddam Hussein with chemical weapons during the Iran-Iraq war in the 1980s

‘Double standards’

The letter is aimed at holding the EU accountable for its double standards on human rights in Iran, according to the deputy for international affairs at the Iranian council.

The letter is focused on two things: the violation of Iranians’ human rights by the EU inside Iran, and in European countries, Seyyed Majid Tafreshi told Al Jazeera.

“The Europeans who have so many claims on human rights are themselves the perpetrators of many human rights violations of Iranian citizens,” he said.

Tafreshi also said it is unfair that the EU directs the majority of its attention towards “following illegal sanctions imposed by the US” while ignoring the plight of Iranians inside and outside the country.

According to Tafreshi, the human rights council expects an “actionable response” to its letter, which called on the EU to “bring the violators of the fundamental rights of the Iranian nation into trial without any politicisation”.

It would only “strengthen Iran’s position” if the EU fails to adequately respond, he said.

‘Utter lack of knowledge’

An EU source told Al Jazeera the Council of the EU has yet to receive the letter, so it cannot comment on its contents.

Peter Stano, an EU spokesperson for foreign affairs and security policy, said it would be wrong to claim the EU has supported US sanctions on Iran.

“Quite to the contrary, the EU repeatedly rejected the unilateral imposition of the US sanctions and prevented US efforts under the Trump administration to reintroduce UN sanctions on Iran,” he said.

“And it was the EU that was always looking for ways to enable food and medicine supplies to Iran, especially in the context of the coronavirus pandemic. To claim otherwise is utter lack of knowledge and ignorance.”

Stano said the new European sanctions listings are completely unrelated to continuing efforts to restore the Iran nuclear deal.

“The EU supports a balanced, comprehensive approach with Iran through dialogue, with a view to addressing all issues of concern including human rights,” he said. “We are critical when there are divergences and cooperative when there is mutual interest.”

Talks on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in Vienna have been continuing for several weeks, with all sides saying progress is being made on lifting US sanctions and reversing Iran’s nuclear steps despite lingering challenges.
