Paris, Feb. 05 – Iran’s main opposition group, the National Council of Resistance of Iran, issued a statement today condemning the French government’s decision to ban a peaceful protest by Iranian exiles in Paris against the dictatorship ruling Iran, despite prior approval.

The NCRI called France’s decision to cancel the rally “kowtowing to the demands of the medieval regime seeking to expand its repression from Tehran to Paris”, adding “French officials as part of a shameful deal with the clerical regime in power in Iran, banned a February 10th demonstration by Iranians in Paris”.

February 10 coincides with the 26th anniversary of the 1979 anti-monarchic revolution in Iran.

It said, “According to reports from organisers of the demonstration in Paris, more than 40,000 Iranians from across Europe were expected to attend the rally, something which would terrify the ruling mullahs”.

“The demonstration was sponsored by more than 250 European parliamentarians and dozens of international human rights organisations”, it added.

In an interview with Iran Focus one Iranian exile living in Paris called the decision “a mockery to French values for basic human rights, such as the freedom of expression”.

“Iranians who escaped the clutches of the medieval regime have the right to protest against those who have executed over 120,000 dissidents and imprisoned and tortured more than half a million. France, which is thought to be the bastion of freedom, has allowed the regime to spread its tentacles here and taken away the legitimate right of our oppressed people to demonstrate for their fellow compatriots under the mullahs’ dictatorship”, Javad Mahmoudi said.

The NCRI revealed from sources from within Iran that France gave into the demands of the Iranian regime to secure economic deals for French companies, adding that Tehran was spreading its dictatorship thousands of kilometres to the heart of Europe.
