Hossein Ronaghi Maleki, an Iranian political prisoner on hunger strike at Tehran’s Evin Prison, has been transferred to hospital on the ninth day of his strike.
Hossein Ronaghi Maleki
The Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA) reports that the jailed Iranian blogger was transferred to hospital on Sunday but he has insisted that he will refuse food until he is given a leave from prison.
Hossein Ronaghi Maleki began a hunger strike in protest against the authorities’ refusal to allow him sick leave over his kidney complications.
On Saturday, the head of Iran’s judiciary called on the Tehran prosecutor to attend to Ronaghi Maleki’s medical needs and transfer him to a hospital.
Ronaghi Maleki has undergone several kidney operations since he was arrested in December of 2009 during the crackdown on protesters against the contested presidential elections.
He has been sentenced to 15 years in jail for his blog, which was critical of the political situation and the alleged fraud in the elections.

Some things are certain and lasting…and then there are Supreme Leaders’ “fatwas.”
I find it most curious that some Western commentators believe that Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s fatwa banning nuclear weapons is “well-documented.” There has been plenty written about it, certainly, but I have never seen the fatwa itself written down per se or even appropriately documented in either official or unofficial literature.Except for Mehdi Khalaji’s excellent piece in the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP) policy brief “Nuclear Fatwa: Religion and Politics in Iran’s Proliferation Strategy,” nothing all that serious on the subject has been written in either English or Persian, as far as I know.

Analysen von Kaspersky Lab zufolge hat sich Flame unter anderem über Microsofts Updatefunktion verbreitet. Über eine Man-in-the-Middle-Attacke hat sich ein mit Flame infizierter Rechner in das Netzwerk integriert und manipulierte Updatepakete an andere Rechner verteilt sowie einen eigenen Updateserver eingerichtet. Über Microsofts Updatefunktion gelangte der Spionagetrojaner so auf andere Computer.
Flame behauptete, ein Update für die Gadget-Funktion von Windows bereitzustellen und verleitete Anwender so dazu, sich die Schadsoftware selbst auf den Rechner zu holen. Das Update war mit einem gefälschten Microsoft-Zertifikat unterzeichnet. Erst gestern hat Microsoft mitgeteilt, dass Flame gefälschte Microsoft-Zertifikate genutzt habe, um vorzugaukeln, bei Flame handele es sich um eine offizielle Software von Microsoft.
Die über die Updatefunktion verteilte Software wurde am 27. Dezember 2010 kompiliert und ist am 28. Dezember 2010 mit dem Zertifikat versehen worden. Flame soll vor allem Systeme mit Windows XP und Windows 7 befallen haben; Letztere aber nur in der 32-Bit-Version. Lies den Rest dieses Artikels
Reuters: ”The U.N. atomic watchdog and Iran will hold a new round of talks this week to try to reach an agreement to resume a long-stalled investigation into suspected nuclear weapons research in the Islamic Republic, IAEA chief Yukiya Amano said on Monday. Amano, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, made a rare visit to Tehran two weeks ago and said when he returned to Vienna that he expected a framework cooperation deal to be signed soon with Iran. Iranian officials have made clear that only once such an accord has been finalized will they grant U.N. inspectors access to the Parchin military site, where the IAEA suspects Iran may have carried out nuclear weapons development activity.” http://t.uani.com/LgjSnt
NYT: ”Despite sectarian bombings and political gridlock, Iraq’s crude oil production is soaring, providing a singular bright spot for the nation’s future and relief for global oil markets as the West tightens sanctions on Iranian exports… Energy analysts say that the Iraqi boom – coupled with increased production in Saudi Arabia and the near total recovery of Libya’s oil industry – should cushion oil markets from price spikes and give the international community additional leverage over Iran when new sanctions take effect in July.”http://t.uani.com/M4R95z Lies den Rest dieses Artikels
IAEA: Introductory Statement to Board of Governors
Iran is not providing the necessary cooperation to enable the Agency to provide credible assurance about the absence of undeclared nuclear material and activities in Iran, and therefore to conclude that all nuclear material in Iran is in peaceful activities.
Access to Iran site to top agenda at IAEA board
After a visit to Iran on May 21, IAEA chief Yukiya Amano said he and chief nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili would soon sign a deal to resolve issues over Tehran’s nuclear programme. But two weeks on, there is still no sign of it. Last week, IAEA chief inspector Herman Nackaerts also showed delegations new satellite pictures of Parchin taken on May 25 that analysts say suggest cleanup activities at the military base.
IAEA urges Iran to sign deal on nuclear issue soon, new talks scheduled
Yukiya Amano, head of the IAEA, told the quarterly board meeting that another round of talks between Iran and the UN nuclear agency, aiming to clarify possible military dimensions to Iran’s nuclear program, has been scheduled for June 8 in Vienna. “I invite Iran to sign and implement the Structured Approach document as soon as possible and to provide early access to the Parchin site, “Amano said.

UANI Calls on Bureau Veritas to Comply with Sanctions and Stop Certifying IRISL Vessels and Iranian Oil Tankers
On Monday, United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) called on the French shipping service, Bureau Veritas, to stop certifying Iranian shipping vessels, specifically those of the Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Lines (“IRISL”) and the National Iranian Tanker Company (“NITC”).
Bureau Veritas’s Iran business violates EU sanctions that ban both transactions with the IRISL and the provision of ancillary services, including certification services that facilitate Iran’s global oil trade.
In recent months, Bureau Veritas has made a series of irresponsible and illegal decisions to certify vessels that other certification providers such as Lloyd’s Register and Det Norske Veritas have dropped due to U.S. and EU sanctions. Bureau Veritas now providescertification to at least a dozen IRISL vessels and eleven NITC oil tankers.
In a letter sent last week to Bureau Veritas’s CEO Didier Michaud-Daniel, UANI CEO, Ambassador Mark D. Wallace, explained how this is a clear violation of EU sanctions imposed against the IRISL and Iran’s oil trade, and also could run afoul of U.S. law, given Bureau Veritas’s extensive contract work with the U.S. government.
