The Iranian Resistance revealed last week that in a briefing for the high-ranking officials of his ministry, Ali Akbar Velayati, the mullahs' Foreign Minister, referred to the Mykonos trial and the relationship between the German government and judiciary and said, "Whenever their interests are at issue, the government can send a note to the Judiciary Branch. Government is able to give a note to the court and achieve its objective... In light of our relations with some of the European countries and considering the relations we maintain with Germany, itself, we can accomplish a lot."
The National Council of Resistance of Iran condemns the trip to Germany of the mullahs' criminal minister. The NCR condemns shaking hands with Tehran officials for whatever reason it may be. The Iranian Resistance views such appeasement of the Khomeini regime and especially the policy of critical dialogue pursued by the European Union and Germany, as serving this medieval regime in pursuing its crimes and terrorism, and only adding to the pain and suffering of the Iranian people.
The explosion of public fury in recent days against the mullahs' regime throughout Kermanshah province (western Iran) is but an example of the hatred of the general public of this illegitimate regime which survives solely through domestic suppression and export of terrorism.
The official reception of a minister of this criminal regime is but a flagrant affront to the public opinion in Germany who in light of the exposure in Mykonos trial of the direct role of the leaders of the mullahs in international terrorism, demand support for the independence of German Judiciary, prevention of the regime from influencing the due process of law, and increasingly calling for severance of ties with the mullahs' regime.
