Faryad Azadi, Paris, March 07 2017:… That is why Shahram Golestaneh has been ordered to hide his membership of this notorious cult, which after the fall of their last benefactor Saddam Hussain, is now working alongside the terrorist groups which incorporate the remains of the Saddam regime in Iraq and Syria, including ISIS. Shahram Golestaneh is now portraying himself as the head of a made-up organisation …
Open letter to Canadian Senate. Sharham Golestaneh, high ranking member of Mojahedin Khalq terrorist Organisation in your buildings.
To the Canadian Senate.
The Honourable George J. Furey Q.C., Speaker of the Senate
We have been informed that a long-term agent of the Mojahedin Khalq Organisation (aka Rajavi cult, Saddam’s Private Army, MKO, MEK, NCRI), by the name of Mr Shahram Golestaneh has been tasked to infiltrate and influence the political establishments of Canada, including the Senate, to serve the terrorist organisation’s purposes and goals.
The Mojahedin Khalq has a known track record and is considered both as a dangerous cult and as a terrorist organisation by practically all the free world (including the US, EU, UK and Canada).
That is why Shahram Golestaneh has been ordered to hide his membership of this notorious cult, which after the fall of their last benefactor Saddam Hussain, is now working alongside the terrorist groups which incorporate the remains of the Saddam regime in Iraq and Syria, including ISIS. Shahram Golestaneh is now portraying himself as the head of a made-up organisation called the Iran Democratic Association.
Having said that, Shahram Golestaneh does not hide his full membership of the MEK when he needs to. On February 8, 2014 he gave a speech in the presence of the cult leader Maryam Rajavi in Paris pledging full loyalty to the cult. He bends over backwards to support the ideology, strategy and the tactics used by Saddam’s Private Army during and after the fall of the dictatorship in Iraq.
Evidence and documents attaching this man to the notorious terrorist organisation are not hard to find. We have attached some examples for your information.
We are a number of former members of the Mojahedin Khalq Organisation. We testify that Shahram Golestaneh is a high-ranking active member of this organisation who is hiding his true face behind the Iran Democratic Association in Canada. Many of us have worked alongside this man in the MEK and know him personally.
Thank you for your kind attention to this matter.

Letter to the Canadian Minister of immigration
Family Network Association, March 17, 2006
The Honourable Mike Colle
Ontario Minister of Citizenship and Immigration
Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration
6th Floor, 400 University Avenue
Toronto, Ontario M7A 2R9
We have been informed that Mr. Shahram Golestaneh (Golestane, Golestaney) the unoficial representative of the Mojahedin Khalq Organisation of Iran (aka. MEK, MKO, NCR, NCRI, PMOI, …) under the name of “Committee for the Defence of Human Rights in Iran” (CDHRI) has been trying to get hold of Canadian Citizenship during the recent years. We believe that he has submitted an application form in 2000 and has not been granted this citizenship.
The Ottawa newspapers have reported that:
… In Golestaney’s case, the security clearance has proved to be the sticking point.
He took his case to the Federal Court of Canada, seeking an order that Citizenship and immigration decide on his application within 30 days. In his December decision, justice Paul Rouleau ruled against Golestaneh, noting there is no statutory deadline for deciding on a citizenship application…”
The paper notes that:
“In 1994 he was convicted over an attack … when a mob armed with sticks, mallets and a sledgehammer ransacked a building just a few blocks south of Parliament Hill, … Golestane was convicted of breaking and entering and of an attack on internationally protected premises. A woman suspected by the Canadian Security Intelligence Service of masterminding the attack was deported in 1993. CSIS identified her as the Canadian leader of the Mujahedin e Khalq of MEK…Canada designated the group a terrorist entity under federal law… Golestaneh denies being involved with the MEK.”
As ex members of MKO and as the organisation which helps disaffected members and victims of this terrorist cult, we would like to inform you that Mr. Golestaneh although denying and relation with this organisation, has been one of the leading members of the cult in Canada for years and his statements and activities are frequently published in the organisations clandestine television program as well as related web sites including www.iranfocus.com in English and www.mojahedin.org in Farsi.
The documents and evidence of his activities in promotion of the heads of this cult-like terrorist organisation in Canada could be submitted in any court of justice if needed. These documents include Golestaneh’s involvement in organised meetings and demonstrations as well as frequent public support for the MKO and its leaders (Massoud Rajavi, a fugitive after the fall of Saddam and Maryam Rajavi currently under investigation in Paris on terrorism related charges) as recently as a few weeks ago.
Below you can see a recent picture of Mr. Golestaneh supporting terrorism under the flag of the Mojahedin Khalq Organisation
And the following is a picture of his interview with the clandestine satellite program of the Mojahedin Khalq Organisation
As the organisation which supports many victims of this cult we would like to let you know that if needed we are able to provide to the relevant authorities, further documents and evidence concerning the ongoing involvement of Mr. Golestaneh and other agents of this terrorist cult in Canada.

Canadian Iranian Coalition for Peace hits back at Reza Moridi support for Mojahedin Khalq (MKO, MEK, NCRI, Rajavi cult)
letter to Justin Trudeau on MPP Moridi- CIC for Peace
Dear Hon. Trudeau,
1/4 Million Iranian Decent living in Ontario And close to 400,000 all over Canada, with strong relationship with the Liberal Party, with lots of respect for your late father Mr. Pierre Elliott Trudeau for his efforts on peace, Charter of rights and Freedom and open approach for new immigrants.
Iranian- Community in Canada, is an influential & highly educated, we have among several hundred professional such as: Doctors, Lawyers, Engineers and UNIVERSITY scholars. In addition we have one of the top ranking students in universities across Canada. Also, many of Canadian Iranians are working in different fields, within the Canadian government offices, they run private enterprises and other successful businesses such as investors & builders. Who are proudly generating hundreds of millions of dollars which is contributing to the Canadian economy and multiculturalism! We want to bring a few viewpoints to your attention from our community……..
WE ARE sorry to report to you that, our elected member of Provincial Government, Mr. Reza Moridi is focusing mostly on foreign affairs rather than dealing with actual needs of Iranian community in Toronto & ONTARIO………
In our humble opinion, Mr. Moridi is SOMEHOW confused with Liberal party guidelines…. He is emphasizing on sanction on Iran in alignment with Prime Minister Harper and Minister Baird, which is SERIOUSLY hurting only the Iranian people, not the government of Iran.
This has damaged and is continuing to negatively affect Iranian - Canadian Community FINANCES in Canada. Majority of Iranian community is not supporting these sanctions. Is it really a provincial Member of Parliament responsibility to act as slow federal Member of Parliament?????
MMP Moridi knowingly or unknowingly, has supported an infamous ex terrorist group in Iran (Mojahedin Khalq) MEK and their lobbyist in Canada which have kept a few young Canadians in Camp Ashraf against their Will. MEK is MEK is promoting hate and violence in Iraq and Iran which is totally against Canadian values and principles…
MPP Moridi also supported the closure of Iranian consulate in Ottawa, which has caused a tremendous amount of inconvenience for all Canadian-Iranians in our country Canada. He is simply following the Conservative Party mandates. Supporting sanction and war, this is against the Liberal party’s policy and philosophy. Therefore our community cannot distinguish between the Liberals and the conservatives.,,,,,,
These issues have caused hopelessness in our Community towards the Liberal Party.
We request that you as the leader of the Liberal party of Canada to guide some of the party members to follow the Liberal path, rather than their own personal agenda!!! Liberal Party has always made Canada a respected and unique country globally. Please consider our issues and concerns.
Yours Very Truly,
Canadian Iranian Coalition for Peace
