The two officials have a long record in the suppression of Resistance forces and sympathizers in Iran. The regime has sent them to Europe for identification of Iranian refugees as part of a terrorist plan. Their host in the embassy in Vienna who follows up their assignment is Mohammad Hossein Ashtiani, an Iranian diplomat-terrorist who is himself a member of the Ministry of Intelligence (secret police). The torturers are staying at Vienna's Ambassador Hotel, room numbers 414 and 405.
The Iranian Resistance emphatically calls on the Austrian government, judicial and police authorities to immediately arrest and prosecute the two terrorist torturers and executioners. There are numerous private complainants among the families of political prisoners who have been tortured or executed by these two men.
