NCRI. Members of ROUHANI cabinet all principal elements of suppression, terror and corruption in past years

Pour-Mohammadi, minister of Justice, one of highest officials responsible for massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in 1988

 

Members of ROUHANI’s cabinet introduced to the parliament today are all senior officials of the regime in past three decades with the most roles in war, suppression, and export of terrorism and fundamentalism with none among them out of the circle of mullahs’ regime officials of the past 34 years. Not even one woman has been nominated for ministerial posts.

As stipulated by Mrs. Rajavi from the first day after the elections, no change is imaginable in Iran without the release of political prisoners, freedom of expression, freedom of political parties, cessation of transgressing meddling in Syria and Iraq, and ending the project to attain nuclear weapon. In the fifty days after the election and various circumstances, ROUHANI has lucidly shown that he neither wants nor can bring any change to any of the above realms. Today, ROUHANI told the Syrian Prime Minister who had travelled to Tehran to participate in ROUHANI’s inauguration that under no pressure would the clerical regime cease its support for the Syrian government in confronting the present crisis (meaning confronting the Syrian people). 

Dossiers of some of the candidates for ministerial positions are as follows: 

-Mullah Mostafa Pour-Mohammadi, candidate for Ministry of Justice is one of the most criminal elements of this regime. For years he worked as deputy to minister of intelligence and in that position he was the principal member of the 3-man Death Committee that played the greatest role in the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in 1988. In 1980, after the outset of war with Iraq, Khomeini appointed him as revolution’s prosecutor in Khuzestan, Hormozgan and Khorassan provinces to suppress protests by teachers and students in Bandar-Abbas ongoing for over a year. The ghastly slaughter of 100 students of 16 to 18 years of age and the fired teachers of Bandar-Abbas are among the published background of this cruel henchman during those years. After that he was always designated as revolution’s or military prosecutor in various provinces of the country suppressing people (1979-1986). During the years 1987-1999 he worked as deputy to minister of intelligence. 

In the period of 1990-1999, Pour-Mohammadi played a special role in regime’s assassinations broad functioning as deputy and head of Foreign Intelligence in the Ministry of Intelligence. The principal designer of assassinations in this period was Pour-Mohammadi and Saeid Emami implemented these plots.

Pour-Mohammadi was also an element in the serial killings who did not even spare his own relatives; for example in March 1996, he was involved in the calamitous murder and the burning of the corpse of his cousin’s wife Ashraf al-Sadat Borqe’i.

As one the closest and most trusted officials of Khamenei in the regime, he was appointed Advisor to the Head of Khamenei’s Office and his Director of the “political-social” group in 2002. He also worked as one of the managers of Khamenei’s Special Office for intelligence and security. Intelligence and security in Khamenei’s Office with code 101, has nineteen subordinate departments and the personnel code for Mostafa Pour-Mohammadi in this organization is 1223.

During the era of Fallahian as minister of intelligence, countering Simay-e Azadi and broadcasting noise on it was directly under Mostafa Pour-Mohammadi’s supervision.

-Ali Rabi’ie, for minister of Employment and Social Affairs, joined the revolutionary guards since Khomeini came to power and from the outset worked as an officer in the IRGC Intelligence Unit. He was the first general manager of intelligence department in Western Azerbaijan. He later became general manager of Labor’s Unit of Ministry of Intelligence and was Legal-Parliamentary deputy for Ministry of Intelligence up to 1993. 

Subsequently, Ali Rabi’ie became executive secretary of the Supreme National Security Council during Khatami’s presidency and he followed up intelligence issues with Hassan ROUHANI. In the University of Ministry of Intelligence called Imam Bagher he was professor of psychological war. He played an active role in anti-labor plans.

-Mullah Seyyed Mahmoud Alawi, for minister of Intelligence, was directly responsible for writing the laws for Ministry of Intelligence in the first parliament of the clerical regime. He is currently member of supreme leader’s Assembly of Experts and a member of parliament in the first, second, fourth and fifth parliaments. During the years 1989-1991, he was head of Supervision and Inspection, and Public Relations and Propaganda departments of the espionage and suppression organ called “Ideological-Political” in the Ministry of Defense and Support for the armed forces. And during 2000 to 2009, he was head of “Ideological, Political” organization of the army that played a very important role in suppression of anti-regime personnel of the army.

-Hamid Chit-Chian, for minister of Electricity, was commander of IRGC intelligence in Tabriz and other cities of Azerbaijan Province during the early years of mullahs’ regime. As Ministry of Intelligence was established in 1984, Chit-Chian was officially employed by this ministry and worked his way up by his services to the suppressive organs.

-Abbas Akhoundi, for minister of Housing, was among the first members of Jihad Sazandegi (Construction) central council and was responsible for supporting the war where he wasted billions of Iranian people’s wealth to keep the 8-year war with Iraq going.
