Iran: Hilarious accusation of “trying to overthrow regime” brought against mother of a two year old toddler

Published by on June 21, 2016

MotherIran fundamentalist and dictatorial regime of the mullahs which is grappling with increasing problems both within the regime and in respect to the society and fearful of explosion of unrest and rage from its citizens, has been resorting wide state censorship and crackdown on reports and reporters who try to reflect a minimal portion of the abysmal problems it is facing with.
This regime arrests journalists, particularly Iranians who have dual citizenship and work for foreign companies, accusing them of bogus charges including “being involved or attempting to overthrow the regime.”
Back in April, the notorious Iran’ ministry of intelligence arrested Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, a young Iranian-British mother of a two-year-old toddler who works for the Reuters news agency.
But hilariously on Wednesday, June 15, the mullahs’ judiciary issued her a sentence of being “involved in the soft overthrow of the Islamic Republic through… her membership in foreign companies and institutions,’ according to Mizan news agency quoting a regional Guards branch in Iran.
Zaghari-Ratcliffe, 37, was arrested at Tehran airport on April 3 as she prepared to return to Britain with her daughter after visiting family in Iran, her husband told AFP last week.
According to the Guards, Zaghari-Ratcliffe was ‘identified and arrested after massive intelligence operations’ as one of ‘the heads of foreign-linked hostile networks.’
Her husband said she was held in solitary confinement for 45 days.
Britain’s Foreign Office has said it has raised the case ‘repeatedly and at the highest levels’ and will continue to do so at ‘every available opportunity’.

Abolish death penalty

Please Sign our Petition

Dear Secretary General of United Nations,

The number of executions is rising in Iran, journalists are being detained for doing their job and activists face cruel and degrading punishments, long prison terms and even execution. According to the most recent reports by Amnesty International and the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, “Iran’s judiciary continues to sentence child offenders to death, and carry out their execution by hanging”. Also, on August 9th, 2016 the son of late Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri, Khomeini’s designated successor in 1988, published a shocking audio tape of his father’s meeting with the “Death Commission” which summarily and extra-judicially executed tens of thousands of political prisoners held in jails across Iran. The massacre was carried out on the basis of a fatwa by the regime’s then-Supreme Leader Khomeini.

We, the undersigned, hereby urge you to take up this issue and raise it in the General Assembly in order to;

1. Put pressure on Iran to immediately halt the executions and abolish death penalty in Iran.
2. Call on all Western governments to make any improvement in economic relations with Iran contingent on its human rights record.
3. Demand in its resolution on human rights violations in Iran, to bring the perpetrators of 1988 massacre (one of the worst atrocities the post-war world has ever seen – Geoffrey Robertson-QC) to justice before an international tribunal.

Executions must stop.
