"The Mourning Mothers of Laleh Park " criticized the reports by Ahmad Shaheed the UN reporter on Human Rights in Iran!!!

On Saturday afternoon the "Mourning Mothers of Laleh Park " gathered around the "Abnama circle" and criticized the interim report by Ahmad Shaheed the UN Human Rights reporter on Iran. The mothers said: Although there were reports about violation of so many cases ,but it seemed the report has made discrimination of reporting about all the cases.

The placard in the hands of those mothers reads:"Mr. Ahmad Shaheed ! Where is the place of those killed during the last 33 years and the harassing or hurting of those mourning mothers and their supporters in your report?"!!!???

They added in their statement that : After months of expectation ,the first reports of Mr. Shaheed was released. Although we are happy that ,the report protested on the violation of the human rights of many freedom loving,but alas that the report discriminated and chose the policy of " One of us - not one of us " in its report. They asked: Is this just , not to report about all thosed killed or tortured and imprisoned during the last two years ,including mothers who were under constant threat ,harrasment ,imprisonment ,torture among them Ms. Leila Seifolahi and Jila Karamzadeh Makvandi who were sentenced to four years in prison ?!!

Mr. Shaheed earlier said ,he will speak to the Islamic Republic officials whether his report is correct or not -due to criticism by the Islamic Republic .The mourning mothers are asking Mr. Shaheed ,when and how many times the officials in the Islamic Republic confessed they have violated the human rights?!! The mothers said: Not only the Islamic Republic officials, but we must have equal opportunity to speak about our pain and sufferings too.

The mothers wanted investigation in the mass killings of political prisoners in 1988 be also included in the report.

At the end ,the "mourning mothers of the Laleh Park" demanded in the next report their cry for justice be included.

Khamenei the revisionist !!! Division of thought is widening among top Islamic Republic leadership!!??

Tha war of words among top leadership is widening !!!

Based on news from Iran, the division of political thought among the leadership of the Islamic Republic in Iran is widening. When talking of leadership , it is mainely Ayatollah Hashemi Rafsanjani and Ayatollah Khamenei. In the last two plus years in particular, whatever Khamenei has said, Rafsanjani said the opposit. Khamenei backed more with radicals -fanatic officials including mahmoud Ahmadinejad ,while Rafsanjani stood mostly in at least words with reformists . The war of words is clear for everyone to see. In the past Khamenei stood or backed Ahmadinejad and guide and helped his government from mounting violations and criticism.Khamenei spoke harshly against reformists and green movement leaders.Green movement leaders are in house arrest becuse of his direct order.In short ,he is the one, who is running our country Iran and it seems the ship is sinking - In the other hand, since the Iranian uprising after the election coup ,Rafsanjani hesitantly spoke about the will of the people and end of dictatorship and so on, but when it comes to openly confronting the radicals ,he was very catious or was silent. This is a more clear and new developement - Some speculate that ,all these are games for amusing people and......
Now , Why the division is widening is because:
Khamenei in the last few weeks spoke about changing the general policy on presidential election with "parliamentary democracy" !!!???
What he means is president be chosen by the Members of the Parliaments rathar than people.
Rafsanjani today said the opposit:
The proposed parliamentary political structure will change the system of the Republic!!??
Two different and clear views on the political system.
Khamenei as Revisionist in the Islamic fundamentals of the Ayatollah Khomeini -the leader of the Islamic Revolution.

October 20, 2011-Iran Slams UN Human Rights Report

Iran has slammed a report from a United Nations investigator that cites a "dramatic increase" in executions in Tehran along with other alleged human rights abuses.U.N. special investigator Ahmed Shaheed issued an interim report on Wednesday that says more than 200 officially announced executions have taken place in Iran so far this year. He also accused Iranian authorities of conducting more than 300 secret executions at the Vakilabad prison in 2010.Additionally, Shaheed said Iran has been detaining political dissidents for prolonged periods and persecuting religious and ethnic minorities.Iranian judiciary chief Ayatollah Sadeq Larijani says Shaheed's report is "full of lies" and reflects the "hostile views" of exiled Iranian dissidents and "nothing more." He also accused the U.S. of supporting terrorist operations against Iran and said he had ordered the country's state prosecutor to gather evidence proving U.S. crimes in Iran and elsewhere.Shaheed's findings were based largely on interviews with victims of state-sponsored abuse because Tehran has refused to allow him into the country.Wednesday, the U.S. urged the international community to "redouble its condemnation" of Iran for the alleged crimes. State Department spokesman Mark Toner said the report shows Iran is continuing a "brutal repression" of its citizens. He called on Iran to give Shaheed immediate access to the country.The U.N. Human Rights Council named Shaheed as a Special Rapporteur on Iran in March.

President of the Bank Melli before revolution in a letter to M.R. Khavari:Mr. Khavari,I do not know where you are right now and what you are doing?

Mr.Jalil Shoraka the president of the Bank Melli before the revolution in a letter explained to Mr. Khavari how he left Iran during the revolution 32 years ago ,but returned to Iran to help Bank Melli go through the difficult time.In the letter Mr. Shoraka said: "Due to our similar situation i would like to indicate some points to you. I dont know where you are and what you are doing? I'm sharing some ideas, so you know what to do . At the end, he is prescribing Khavari to come back to Iran ,like what he did and nothing happened to him. Because he was also afraid if he returned,the revolutionary Government will do harm on him ."Right now, you are on junction of decision making,like what i was before. If you dont come back ,you won't achieve anything,and even the developed world won't bring you security and comfort. Look at your records ,if there were offences in the Bank , you should come and compensate, even if you feel guilty , still your stay in abroad doesn't help you should come, because all we need to do is to translate the document and send to authorities to arrest you and in a few month, you will be in Iran ,but ,what a difference there is between this way of coming or to come as a nationalist to help the national bank ."

Secretary general of UN releases report criticizing human rights abuses in Iran

UNITED NATIONS — UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon yesterday expressed strong criticism of Iran's human rights record, voicing concern about the use of excessive force after the recent presidential election, the harassment of women's rights activists, the ongoing execution of juveniles, and the continued persecution of minorities, including Baha'is.
In a 19-page report written specifically to address a request made last December from the UN General Assembly about human rights in Iran, Mr. Ban said there have been "negative developments" in the area of civil and political rights since 2008.
The year saw "an increase in human rights violations targeting women, university students, teachers, workers and other activist groups, particularly in the aftermath of the elections," Mr. Ban said.
"Members of various ethnic and minority groups faced harassment, violence and, in some cases, persecution," he added, noting that "a pattern of concern arises with respect to the protection of minorities, including the Baha'i community, the Arab minority in Khuzestan, the Nematollahi Sufi Muslim community, the Kurdish community, the Sunni community, the Baluchi community, and the Azeri-Turk community."
The report made specific mention of seven imprisoned Baha'i leaders who were arrested in the spring of 2008 and have since been held in Evin prison, noting that the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights has written to Iran "on numerous occasions to express concern and seek clarification" about the status of the seven.
Mr. Ban also noted that during the year reports "continued to be received about members of the Baha'i community being subjected to arbitrary detention, confiscation of property and denial of employment, government benefits, and access to higher education."
The report, which was dated 23 September 2009 but actually released yesterday, focused extensively on the government's response to post-election protests. It noted that Mr. Ban himself had on 22 June issued a statement "expressing dismay at the post-election violence, particularly the use of force against civilians, which had led to the loss of life and injuries."
That statement, the report noted, called on the authorities to respect fundamental civil and political rights, especially freedom of expression, freedom of assembly, and freedom of information. It also called for an immediate stop to the arrests, threats, and use of force. Yet, the report noted, a spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry said the following day that he rejected the secretary general's statement.
Like a similar report he issued last year, Mr. Ban also took note of reports of Iran's continuing execution of juveniles, reports of the use of torture, and the oppression of women's rights activists.
"I encourage the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran to address the concerns highlighted in the report and to continue to revise national laws, particularly the new penal code and juvenile justice laws, to ensure compliance with international human rights standards and prevent discriminatory practices against women, ethnic and religious minorities, and other minority groups," he said in the report's conclusion.
Bani Dugal, the principal representative of the Baha'i International Community to the United Nations said Mr. Ban's report was extremely welcome – and timely.
"Although Mr. Ban has praised Iran for some developments, such as government's pursuit of the redistribution of wealth and poverty reduction, overall the report is quite damning," said Ms. Dugal. "He also makes a number of suggestions about how Iran could make a constructive response, such as by opening the country to visits by special UN human rights monitors, and we sincerely hope that Iran will heed his call.
"Mr. Ban paints a grim picture of the situation in Iran, clearly indicating that the human rights situation has worsened since his report last year. Our hope, therefore, is that the UN General Assembly will again adopt a resolution this year urging Iran to live up its international human rights obligations."

Iranian tied to bank blacklisted by United Nations

Amy Dempsey
Staff Reporter
An Iranian banker who resigned and fled to Toronto amid a multi-billion dollar embezzlement scandal also has ties to a bank blacklisted by the UN Security Council, which alleges the bank has financed Iran’s nuclear missile activities.
Iranian-Canadian Mahmoud Reza Khavari is a former top official and board member at Bank Sepah, according to his resume. The Iranian bank was blacklisted by the UN in 2007 for allegedly providing support to the country’s Aerospace Industries Organization and other firms known to help spread weapons of mass destruction.
If Khavari were on American soil, he could, under that country’s domestic law, be arrested and questioned about his leadership role at the bank, according to a former U.S. Treasury Department official.
Here in Canada, the scandal-plagued banker has owned property for at least a decade and is now believed to be staying at his $3 million home in the affluent Bridle Path neighbourhood.
Bank Sepah is not named on Canada’s domestic blacklist, but Bank Melli — the state-owned financial institution Khavari was managing director of until last week — is listed as an organization that could or does contribute to Iran’s nuclear activities.
Canadian officials are not commenting on the issue.
Khavari resigned from his post at Bank Melli and fled Iran amid allegations by Iranian officials that he played a key role in what is described as the largest embezzlement in the country’s history. No charges have been laid against Khavari, but prosecutors are seeking to question him about his involvement.
Bank Sepah was blacklisted by the U.S. government in 2007 for allegedly being the “financial linchpin” of Iran’s missile procurement network. The bank’s U.S. assets were frozen and the American government made it illegal for its citizens to do business with Bank Sepah.
“Under U.S. law, doing business with Banks Sepah and Melli is akin to doing business with Osama bin Laden, or any other recognized terrorist organization,” said Avi Jorisch, a former policy adviser with the U.S. Treasury Department’s office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence.
“If he was here in the United States, the government would have full authority to arrest Mr. Khavari for his leadership role at two financial institutions that have been blacklisted for proliferating weapons of mass destruction and facilitating terrorism,” said Jorisch, who founded the Red Cell Intelligence Group, a consulting and training firm that specializes in national security issues.
U.S. officials have said that since at least 2000, Bank Sepah had been providing a variety of critical financial services to Iran’s missile industry.
Khavari was chairman of Bank Sepah’s board of directors from December 2003 until at least March 2005 and held a variety of other roles prior to that, according to the bank’s annual reports and his resume.
Payam Akhavan, professor of law at McGill University and an expert on his native Iran, said it is a security concern when people with ties to blacklisted banks want to come to Canada.
“For several years we have expressed concerns to the government about the presence and influence of Iranian officials, many of whom like to make Canada their home,” Akhavan said.
“My fear is that this discovery is only the tip of the iceberg. Do we want Canada to become known as the investment destination of corrupt and abusive regimes like Iran?”
Khavari flew to Canada last week after resigning from his post at Bank Melli, Iran’s largest state-owned bank.
In his resignation letter, Khavari, who had been with the bank since 2009, blamed another bank as the source of the fraud and said he resigned “to respect public opinion,” according to the state-run Mehr News Agency.
A statement released by Bank Melli said Khavari would be in Canada for one day on business and was expected back in Iran last Thursday. Mehr reported that he did not arrive on his scheduled flight.
Toronto property records in Khavari’s name date back to 2001, when he took out a mortgage for a $615,000 property on Elmwood Ave., in North York, with his spouse. At one time, Khavari owned a Toronto-based company called Soaring Properties, formerly known as Soaring Travel.
A Bridle Path house on Suncrest Dr. is still registered in Khavari’s name and was bought for $2.93 million in 2007.
A man wearing a tie and jacket sat in a car parked outside the house on Wednesday, blocking the entrance to the driveway. He said Khavari was unlikely to speak about the embezzlement allegations or his involvement with Bank Sepah. The banker did not respond to repeated messages left at the house.
The Canadian government has no extradition treaty with Iran and cannot legally extradite people who are likely to face the death penalty or torture.
“If he goes back to Iran, his life will be in danger,” said Morteza Abdolalian, an Iranian-Canadian blogger and journalist who lives in Oakville.
“Whether he was involved in this great embezzlement is in question. He has to come out and speak about the situation. If he doesn’t speak out, it will remain a secret and people will point fingers at him.”

Banker in Iran scandal said to be in Toronto

From Saturday's Globe and Mail
Published Friday, Sep. 30, 2011 9:46PM EDT
Last updated Friday, Sep. 30, 2011 10:12PM EDT

A top Iranian banker who resigned amid a massive embezzlement scandal, one that has soured the political fortunes of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has fled the country and is reported to be in the Toronto area – where a $3-million home is owned in his name.
The scandal is described as the biggest fraud in that country’s history. The amounts of money involved exceed even the $2-billion loss the Swiss bank UBS recently sustained due to a rogue trader.

Iranian-Canadian Mahmoud Reza Khavari was the chairman of the board and managing director of Iran’s largest bank, the state-owned Bank Melli, until he handed in his resignation Tuesday. He flew from London to Frankfurt the next day, boarding a Lufthansa flight to Toronto, according to the Mashreghnews website.
Mr. Khavari faces no charges in Iran, though prosecutors are seeking to question him and officials at several Iranian banks suspected of facilitating fraudulent payments. News agencies report that, in his resignation letter, he insisted that his bank was not directly involved in the scandal but that he was stepping down “to respect public opinion.”
It not uncommon for Iran’s elite to have dual citizenship or close relatives living in the West. “His family, they were living in Canada,” said Ali Reza Nourizadeh, an exiled Iranian dissident and journalist based in London. “Based on the official statement of the bank, he’s gone to Canada on an official business, that’s what the bank says.”
Property records show a Toronto home that’s registered in Mr. Khavari’s name not far from newspaper magnate Conrad Black’s mansion in Toronto’s affluent Bridle Path neighbourhood. The Suncrest Drive property was bought for $2,925,000 on July 30, 2007. When The Globe and Mail approached the house Friday, a woman at the property would not answer any questions.
The scandal may affect politics in Iran, where Mr. Ahmadinejad has lately been at loggerheads with the ruling ayatollahs. His term concludes in 2013, but his rivals are already working to weaken him.
These rivals have tried to tie the controversy to Mr. Ahmadinejad’s chief of staff, Esfandiar Rahim Mashaei, who signed a letter ordering the $600-million sale of a state-owned steel plant. The sale was to a key player in the scandal – magnate Mahafarid Amir Khosravi – who is alleged to have forged letters of credit that he used with several banks to secure financing for his purchase of state-owned companies. It’s being reported that Mr. Khosravi and the heads of two branches of different Iranian banks are among 19 people who have been arrested.
“Death penalty could await defendants should their intention to undermine the Islamic ruling system by damaging the economy [be proven],” the Fars news agency said.
It unclear what the legal implications are for Mr. Khavari. “It is in Mr. Khavari’s interest to come back to Iran to defend himself against the accusations,” Iran’s top prosecutor, Gholam Hossein Mohseni-Ejei, told the Fars news agency this week.
Officials in Canada are not speaking to the case. But the Canadian government has no extradition treaty with Iran, nor can it legally extradite individuals to countries that are likely to torture prisoners or impose death-penalty sentences.
“This is a huge huge scandal in the history of my country,” said Morteza Abdolalian, an Iranian-Canadian blogger based in Oakville.
He added that bank officials in Tehran have circulated statements reassuring clients and shareholders the scandal will not affect their money.
Another top banker, Mohammad Jahromi, head of Bank Saderat, a partly private bank, was also forced to resign this week. He complained he was being made a scapegoat. “Despite my follow-ups and contacting the intelligence ministry and judiciary for the arrest of the main culprits, the main backers of this corruption have publicly blamed Bank Saderat and its manager,” he said in comments carried by Fars news agency.
Mr. Ahmadinejad has denied any government wrongdoing and has urged the judiciary to pursue the case vigorously.
