Right-wing Swedish Government Detains and Intends to Deport Navid Mirpourzadeh, Mission Free Iran’s Representative on Asylum Issues in Sweden

The Swedish government, in continuation of its depraved and inhumane right-wing politics, has detained Mission Free Iran’s representative on asylum issues in Sweden, Navid Mirpourzadeh (read his story). The Swedish government has the intention of illegally deporting him. We knew that they would make this attempt. We also know that they will not succeed. We, hand in hand with rights activists, Navid’s lawyer, and honorable people worldwide will see to it that Navid stays, and is granted his full complement of rights as a recognized refugee in Sweden. Together, we will once again force back the right-wing Swedish government’s hand as it makes a criminal attempt to send yet another activist at risk of torture and execution back to Iran. We have joined hands and done it before, and we will do so again. Count on it.

Navid Mirpourzadeh was detained today.

This is really sad.

It is sad because Navid is political activist who has gone many extra miles to fight the Islamic terrorism both in Iran as an active university student and here in Sweden as an asylum seeker, member of Mission Free Iran, our representative in Sweden regarding the asylum issues…

It is sad because Navid’s case is so crystal clear that should have been resolved with a positive response earlier.

It is sad because the news will torment Navid’s family which has already lost a child, Navid’s brother a labor activist who was executed by the regime of terror and crime.

It is sad because it was EXPECTED and this is really SAD. It is really sad because there is a terrorist regime which has murdered 10s of 1000s of human beings in Iran, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and South America to promote one of the most reactionary and barbaric systems of governance, governance under Shari’a law; and there people like Navid who are combating this barbarity and intend to replace it with a free and humane political entity; and there are regimes like Sweden which claim to be democratic, to value human dignity, to care for freedom …and sadly seems to have mobilized an entire bureaucracy, from the paper pushers of the Migration office to the Migration judges, with strict orders to send Iranian political activists back to Islamic persecution….It is sad.

Navid stays in Sweden. We promise this to Navid, his family and friends.

Navid stays in Sweden. We promise this to the Migration office and minister.

Navid stays in Sweden. We promise this because we know the Swedish society and the depth of this beautiful people’s respect for humanity and human rights.

Navid stays here. We promise this!

Mission Free Iran will launch a political campaign in support of our dear Navid. More information will be released shortly.

Eye on Iran: U.S. Military Claims Success Curbing Attacks in Iraq With Iranian Weapons

Top Stories

NYT: „Attacks by insurgents using what American analysts say are advanced Iranian weapons have dropped significantly over the last few weeks, senior American military officials said Monday, citing a two-track campaign of allied raids on Iranian-backed militants and official Iraqi protests to Tehran. Powerful roadside bombs that can puncture armored vehicles and lethal rockets fired at American military positions have caused a noticeable increase in violence this summer, including the highest number of American combat fatalities in three years. Top American officials say Iran is supplying the weapons in order to claim credit for driving out the withdrawing American forces. Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, described the military and diplomatic offensive for the first time on Monday, as he arrived in Iraq for consultations with commanders and to press the Iraqi government for a quick decision on whether it would request an enduring American military commitment beyond the end of the year. He said the rise in attacks had prompted the United States to urge the Iraqi leadership to take ’steps that we felt needed to be taken to address this significant uptick of violence, particularly the violence supported by Iran.'“
