If Iranian Qods Force commander Qasem Soleimani gets his way (and “the most powerful man in Iraq” usually does), the next attack on Camp Liberty – a tiny compound in Baghdad where roughly 3,000 Iranian dissidents are kept in conditions described by the United Nations as “synonymous with those in a detention centre” – could be the bloodiest yet.

NCRI- Employing hirelings under the cover of former PMOI members for the purpose of demonizing or espionage and terrorist activities against the Iranian Resistance has been the norm and a known method of the apparatuses of massacre, assassination and espionage of the clerical regime such as the Intelligence Ministry, the Revolutionary Guards, and the Quds Force for the past three decades. This matter has been numerously reported, stipulated and testified to by the intelligence organs of various countries such as Germany, Netherlands, Britain and Sweden.

Mrs. Rajavi highlighted the deplorable human rights situation in Iran, Tehran's meddling in Syria and the need for action regarding the mullahs' nuclear threat

OSLO, Norway-In a meeting with members of the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and Defence in the Norwegian Parliament (Stortinget), and representatives from other committees in the Norwegian Parliament, Wednesday, February 26, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran discussed questions related to Iran. Mr. Kristian Norheim, Second Deputy-chairman of the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and Defence led the meeting. Mr. Norheim represents the Progress Party, a coalition partner in the government of Norway.

Representatives of almost 60 Iranian organizations from Scandinavian countries met on Tuesday, February 25th in Oslo, Norway. 

OSLO- Iran’s Diaspora in Scandinavia, including representatives of 60 Iranian associations and societies, on Tuesday called on the international community to cut ties with the ‘fundamentalist’ regime of Hassan Rouhani and to support democratic change in Iran under the platform of opposition leader Maryam Rajavi.

At a major seminar in Oslo on February 25, the Iranian communities denounced Rouhani as a ‘false reformist’ seeking to ‘preserve the religious dictatorship’ which is ‘engulfed in crises’. Some 600 people have been executed since Rouhani took office, they said.

In a statement, the Iranian communities said: “The only avenue to democracy and human rights and the establishment of a secular system in Iran is the overthrow of the regime in its entirety by the Iranian people and their Resistance. Therefore, full support for the PMOI members in Camp Liberty is the duty of any freedom-loving and patriotic Iranian.” 

“The 10-point platform of Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, for the future of Iran reflects the general aspirations of the Iranian people who are fed up with 35 years of a dark religious dictatorship,” they said.

Rajavi, who was keynote speaker, urged Western governments to force the regime to stop torture and execution and to end its warmongering and terrorism in Syria, Iraq and Lebanon.

“Out of an impasse, Khamenei and his regime were forced to take a serious setback in their 20-year massive investment to attain the nuclear bomb,” she said, adding that Western governments should not back down from UN Security Council resolutions, including a complete halt to the enrichment, the Additional Protocol, and stopping the missile program, or else it would give the regime the chance to obtain a nuclear weapon. 

The Iranian communities chided the United Nations and the U.S. government for failing to protect 3000 Iranian dissidents who have come under several deadly attacks in the past year in Camp Liberty, Iraq. They urged the international community to act immediately to free the seven Ashraf hostages, provide security to Camp Liberty residents, conduct an inquiry into the crime against humanity in Camp Ashraf, and permanently station UN monitors and Blue Helmets inside Camp Liberty. 

Other speakers included Rudy Giuliani, former mayor of New York; Geir Haarde, former Prime Minister of Iceland; Christian Norheim and Geir Jorgen Bekkevold, Norwegian lawmakers; Juku-Kalle Raid, Estonian MP; and political personalities from Nordic countries. 


Supporters of free Iran in Nordic nations have called for international pressure against human rights abuses in the regime and urgent action to ensure the safety of residents in Camp Liberty.
