Washington, May 23 – Colorado’s Iranian-American Society will tomorrow hold a press conference on the implications of a recent report issued by New York-based Human Rights Watch on the Iranian opposition group People’s Mujahedeen of Iran (MEK).

VEVAK) regarding the relationship between those who have been given testimonies on the phone to HRW and the MOIS.
