INU - The British-Iranian charity worker wrongfully imprisoned on spying charges in Iran, Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, has now been transferred to a mental health ward, her husband said.
Zaghari-Ratcliffe, 40, was arrested in April 2016, falsely charged with spying, and later sentenced to five years in prison. She had been visiting family in Iran for the Iranian New Year with her baby daughter Gabriella.
During the final conference in the 5-day event being held in Ashraf 3, home to the MEK in Albania, a number of speakers participated in a discussion regarding the 1988 massacre of political prisoners.
The Supreme Leader Ruhollah Khomeini ordered the execution of political prisoners via a fatwa that was issued. Death Committees were set up and more than 30,000 political prisoners were summarily and extra-judicially executed during the summer of 1988. Most of those who were killed were supporters or members of the PMOI / MEK.
INU - At the beginning of the week, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that sanctions on Iran have had a major impact. He said during an interview with Sean Hannity that the United States has proven those critics that said sanctions would not work wrong.
Many said that if the Europeans did not participate in the sanctions, they would have no or very little effect on Iran.
