Forgive me for writing to you but I do so as a member of the British Parliamentary Committee for Iran Freedom and because I feel I ought to draw to your attention a matter of some importance concerning our work and the Iranian Government.
Probably there has arrived on your desk a book called ‘A terrorist group with different faces’. With my copy was a letter very vague in its terms with no clue as to who was the sender . The web site mentioned in the letter has no contact details. It was set up in December 2007 and only has an electronic version of the book. What is more the ISBN printing on the back of the book is a forgery. No such book with that ISBN exists in the international book records.
We have of course known for some time of the activities of the Iranian Regime’s notorious Ministry of Intelligence and Security[MOIS] and of its instructions to its agents to spread false allegations about the main Iranian Resistance movement, the PMOI.; and it seems pretty clear that the MOIS are responsible for this book. It has no doubt been produced at this time in an attempt to counter the recent ruling of the Proscribed Organisation Appeal Commission that the Government’s continued proscription of the PMOI as a terrorist organisation was ‘flawed’ and perverse’ and had to be set aside.
The security services of Germany and Holland do as a matter of routine warn their citizens of the MOIS’ clandestine presence in Europe , of its attempts to demonise the PMOI and to gather intelligence against its sympathisers for use in attacks upon them We have for instance information of preparations for further attacks on the PMOI in Ashraf City, Iraq where recently, after a visit to Iraq by two well known MOIS agents, the MOIS and the regime’s Qods Force carried out a bombing of Ashraf’s water supply..
Once again, I am sorry to trouble you with this, but you might like to look with care at any future publications attacking the PMOI and be aware that it is very likely that they have been produced by the Iranian Regime.
