The Iranian government has recently given a list of its opponents to the Interpol requesting to be put in the “wanted” list of the mentioned institution. The Iranian government fabricated accusations against some persons in the opposition just to legitimize their arrest and being handed over to Iran. The persons requested by Iran are progressive secular and democratic prominent figures who live abroad fled from the dictatorship and despotism of the Islamic Republic of Iran. They are also persons who lead progressive political parties aiming at changing the religious rule in Iran and replacing it with a civilized, secular and humane regime which can secure the basic human rights recognized internationally.
These tyrannical procedures of the Islamic Republic of Iran to pursuit its opponents and the submission of the Interpol to that request will only give opportunity to tens of other despotic regimes world around to carry out the same proceedings. As a result the political oppositions of such countries might be put in the list of “criminals” within Interpol. It is wrong that international organisations which have other duties participate in such acts of violating human rights and assaulting freedom of opinion and expression.
