Regime resorts to widespread arrest of former political prisoners

The mullahs' religious, terrorist dictatorship has re-arrested many former political prisoners in Tehran and other cities over the past several months, reports from Iran say.

Some of these prisoners most of whom had served 10 to 15 years in jail, have either disappeared or been murdered by agents of the regime's Intelligence Ministry in staged accidents.

Fearing the spread of the nationwide Resistance, the regime has been trying to maintain control through such inhuman activities. Despite these suppressive measures, however, the activities of the Resistance forces across the country and the tide of youths joining the National Liberation Army continue to spread everyday.

The Iranian Resistance draws the attention of the international human rights organizations to the rise in suppression and the flagrant and systematic violations of human rights in Iran, and urges them to take immediate action to save the lives of political prisoners.
