VIDEO: Niece Of Supreme Leader Calls World To Cut Ties With Iran

By 11/28/2022 1:38 PMNo CommentsBy YidInfo Staff

People are being urged to pressure their governments to sever connections with Tehran over its harsh repression of anti-government protesters by the niece of Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Farideh Moradkhani urged “conscientious people of the globe” to help Iranian demonstrators in a video uploaded to the internet by her brother, who lives in France.

According to HRANA, a rights watchdog headquartered in the United States, the footage was posted online following Moradkhani’s alleged arrest on November 23.

The closest Khamenei family member to be detained is Moradkhani, a longtime activist whose late father was a prominent opponent married to the supreme leader’s sister.

The family’s branch has long been against Khamenei, and Moradkhani has previously served time in prison for her activism.

She said in her video statement, “I ask the conscience-driven people of the globe to stand by us and ask their governments not to react with hollow words and slogans but with genuine action and terminate any transactions with this regime.”

The Iranian security forces have brutally suppressed the protests, now in their third month, with live ammunition, rubber bullets, and tear gas.

According to HRANA, at least 451 individuals have died, including 63 children.

The rights observer reported that there had been another 18,173 detentions.

Demonstrations are still occurring and are spread out across cities despite the crackdown.

Mahsa Amini, 22, died in police prison in Tehran for defying the Islamic Republic’s strict clothing code, which set off the riots.

It has rapidly developed into the greatest threat to the Iranian regime since the Islamic Revolution of 1979.

Iran further said that it would not work with any U.N. Nasser Kanaani, a spokesman for the foreign ministry, said on Monday that a fact-finding expedition was being sent to look into the deadly crackdown on demonstrators.

Last week, the U.N. Human Rights Council decided to create the mission.

The political group known as the “fact-finding committee” will not receive any assistance from the Islamic Republic of Iran, Kanaani declared.
