Paris, May 31 – The Paris-based National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), the principal coalition that aims to topple the Iranian theocracy, has for the first time broadcast graphic video footage of three young Iranian men being hanged in public.

The never-before-seen video, which was obtained and smuggled out of the country by the People’s Mojahedin Organisation of Iran (PMOI), a leading group within the coalition, was for the first time shown publicly in a Paris press conference last week soon after U.S.-based rights group, Human Rights Watch, released a 28-page report accusing the PMOI of torturing their dissident members.

The PMOI, which denies the allegations and blames Iran’s notorious Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS a.k.a. VEVAK) for “spreading lies to demonize the opposition in the eyes of the world”, said in a statement around the same time that HRW should condemn the Iranian regime for violations of human rights in light of the latest videotape evidence rather than making allegations regarding the principle resistance movement based on the testimonies of a dozen “VEVAK agents”.

The shocking footage shows three separate scenes of three young men being taken forcefully in public and then hanged in the open, with one of the men accusing his executioners of having plotted to kill him just before the noose of the rope is pulled around his neck.

Mohammad Mohaddessin, chair of the NCRI Foreign Affairs Committee, said that the horrifying scenes were “unfortunately, ever too common in Iran”.

Mohaddessin denounced the continuing dialogue among the European troika of France, Germany, and the United Kingdom with the clerical state, and said that despite the fact that it provides short-term economic contracts, it also allows the regime to further continue unabatedly violations of human rights. “Dialogue with the mullahs is a gateway for the regime to claim legitimacy”, he said.
