Iran News ( Iranian women - stand up to " Vice COPS " over how to Dress ) See photo

NCRI - The Iranian regime's parliament has held a special session to tackle the growing problem of attacks on female anti-vice police by women resisting the regime's repressive laws.
The National Security and Foreign Affairs Commission and Cultural Commission as well as Tehran's police and Basij paramilitary held the urgent meeting after three recent incidents of women defying female officers in public.
The committee said it discussed new ways to protect those who 'promote virtue and prevent vice' on the streets of Iran.
In one incident in Tehran's Pounak District on July 14, a dispute erupted between a female anti-vice officers and woman she told was wearing her veil incorrectly. A fight is said to have broken out after the woman told the officer: "You ruin everything [in our country] and I will pull down your Chador myself."

On the same day, another female anti-vice agent was attacked in Tehran's Khani Abad District after telling a woman to adjust her veil.
Then in the city of Shiraz on July 22, three female anti-vice agents approached a woman, who turned on the officers shouting: "It does not concern you. I will dress anyway I want and come out so that the eyes of your Leader bulge out."
An official meeting in parliament on July 23 then issued a warning to Iran's police chief to clamp down on all future incidents of this kind.
Police deputy Saeid Montazer al-Mehdi denied the event in the Pounak district occurred, adding: "When someone tries to defend religion, that may have its own consequences."
Hossein Taghavi said later of the parliament session: "Tehran's police chief Sajedinai has spoken about the first two incidents. He explained about the legal action that was taken, and those present at the meeting called for a safe and secure environment for those who to promote virtue and prevent vice."
The incidents also come after Ibrahim Raeisi - first deputy of the regime's judicial system - said on June 30 that anyone causing social disorder would be 'dealt with seriously'.
He added: "If we back down, people will take advantage. We shouldn’t disregard the role of the anti-vice police in the society. If the enemy identifies any weakness in us, they will take more action. The judicial system will seriously deal with anyone trying to cause disorder in society."

Mexico ( Police Arrest 9 Kidnappers, Free 2 Captives in Western Mexico )

MEXICO CITY – Police arrested nine suspected kidnappers and rescued two captives in Guadalajara, the capital of the western Mexican state of Jalisco, officials said.

The operation was carried out Monday afternoon in the El Palomar district after a victim of the kidnappers filed a criminal complaint, Jalisco Public Safety Commissioner Francisco Alejandro Solorio said.

Police seized five firearms and five vehicles from the kidnappers, one of whom is a woman, Solorio said.

One of the suspects has been linked to the massacre of 26 people whose bodies were dumped at the Arcos del Milenio monument on Nov. 24, 2011, Solorio said.

Investigators blamed Los Zetas, considered Mexico’s most violent drug cartel, for the killings because of a sign left with the bodies and oil markings on the victims that said “Z Milenio.”

Prosecutors “will continue the investigation since it appears the suspects took part in other kidnappings and crimes,” the Jalisco Attorney General’s Office said. EFE

Mexico ( Four Die in Shooting at Bar in Central Mexico )

MEXICO CITY – Four people were killed in a shooting Wednesday at a bar in Nezahualcoyotl, a city in central Mexico, media reports said.

Several gunmen drove up to the Mi Oficina bar in the city’s La Perla district in the early morning hours, went inside and opened fire.

Nezahualcoyotl is in Mexico state, which surrounds the Federal District and forms part of the Mexico City metropolitan area.

Investigators are still trying to determine whether the victims – two men and two women – were employees or patrons of the bar.

The motive for the attack is not known, but there is speculation that it may be linked to an extortion racket targeting the bar’s owner.

Nezahualcoyotl, located east of the Federal District, is one of the most dangerous cities in Mexico state.

On July 1, gunmen killed three people at a bar on Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz avenue, a street on the Nezahualcoyotl-Mexico City limits.

An SUV pulled up in front of the bar and three gunmen got out, entered the bar and opened fire, eyewitnesses and employees told Mexican media.

The gunmen opened fire on three people who apparently worked at the establishment, media reports said.

The bar’s owners reportedly refused to pay money to a gang that targeted them in an extortion racket, Mexico state Attorney General’s Office spokesmen said. EFE

Iran ( Saeed Matinpour allowed visitation in Evin prison - After 3 years )

29 July 2013
Keywords : Political Prisoners

Committee of Human Rights Reporters – Saeed Matinpour, jailed journalist and political activist was granted visitation in prison today, July 29 after spending about 3 years of his sentence behind bars.
According to CHRR, on July 18 Saeed Matinpour and a number of other political prisoners at Evin prison were transferred to solitary confinement after about 150 officers violently raided the men’s public Ward 350 of the prison. This led to 6 prisoners launching a hunger strike in support of Matinpour, demanding that he be released from solitary confinement and returned to the public ward. The six prisoners who went on hunger strike were Saeed Jalalifar (CHRR member), Saeed Haeri (former CHRR member), Reza Shahabi, Soroush Sabet, Fereydoun Seydirad and Vahid Ali Ghalipour.
The hunger-striking prisoners ended their strike after 4 days when their demands were met and Saeed Matinpour was transferred from Ward 240 back to Ward 350 in Evin prison. Today, one week after his return to the public ward, Saeed Matinpour was finally granted visitation with his family.
Saeed Matinpour, a philosophy major at Tehran University is a civil activist involved in Azerbaijan ethnic rights, and journalist who wrote in Zanjan Newspaper. He was arrested on May 25, 2007 and subjected to harsh interrogations while held in solitary confinement for nine months, leading to back and neck problems. He was handed an 8-year prison sentence by Branch 15 of the Revolutionary Court presided by Judge Salavati on the charges of “connection with foreign entities,” and “propaganda against the regime.” Even though Matinpour has spent more than half of his prison term behind bars in Evin prison, he has been barred from his legal right to furlough despite many requests on the part of his family. He is now serving his prison term in Ward 350 of Evin prison.

BOGOTA – Eight suspected members of the Los Rastrojos gang were arrested in Bahia Solano and Nuqui, two cities located in the northwestern Colombian province of Choco, the navy said Sunday.

Pacho Valois, the gang’s suspected leader, was among those arrested.

Iran News ( Member of Iran minority sets self on fire - Ahl Al-Haq faith )

Monday, 29 July 2013   

An Iranian semi-official news agency is reporting that a member of a small religious minority set himself on fire next to the country's parliament building.
Mohabat News - ISNA's late Saturday report says the man, a member of the Ahl Al-Haq, suddenly poured a bottle of fuel on his body and lit it. It said he was taken to hospital.
Iranian opposition websites have reported two other such self-immolations since June by Ahl Al-Haq adherents following the alleged abuse of a group member in prison. Those reports couldn't be independently verified.
Iran recognizes some non-Muslim minorities such as Zoroastrians, but others like the Baha'i complain of exclusion from state jobs, vilification in the media and other pressures.
The Ahl Al-Haq faith is found mostly among ethnic Kurds in both western Iran and Iraq. / journaltimes

Pakistan ( Least 6 Dead in U.S. Drone Strike in Pakistan )

ISLAMABAD – At least six suspected insurgents died in a U.S. drone strike against a building in a tribal area of North Waziristan, a Pakistani official told Efe on Monday.

“The home, which was hit by two missiles, belonged to a group of foreign paramilitaries and those who died were not Pakistanis,” regional administrator Rehman Sha said by telephone from Peshawar.

The attack occurred late Sunday in the area of Data Khel, he said.

The missile hit the home as the occupants were sharing the “iftar” meal that breaks the daytime fast practiced by Muslims during the holy month of Ramadan, a Data Khel resident told Geo television.

Officials cited by Geo said the strike took place in the Shawal Valley near the porous Afghan border and is often used by insurgents, “especially foreigners,” as a summer refuge.

North Waziristan is often the scene of U.S. drone attacks.

This year there have been some 15 attacks that have killed close to 100 people, most of them identified by authorities as suspected insurgents.

A confidential Pakistani government report published last week by the Bureau for Investigative Journalism found that of 746 people killed by drones between 2006-2009, at least 147 “are clearly stated to be civilian victims, 94 of those are said to be children.”

The death of civilians is one of the main sore points between Islamabad and Washington.

Despite their public criticism of drones, Pakistani authorities are suspected to have tacitly accepted their use. EFE

UK coroner calls for probe into death of student from ChennaiLondon: A British coroner has asked police in the UK and India to investigate further into the suspected suicide of an Indian student, who was found dead in her campus accommodation at Liverpool University earlier this month.

Georgianna Thomsson, an 18-year-old aspiring astronaut from Chennai, was found hanging in her room at Melville Grove on the university campus.

"There were various notes left within the accommodation. Some of those notes seemed to indicate intentional self-harm. However, there were other notes which led me to direct there be investigations not just here, but also in Chennai," Liverpool Coroner Andre Rebello said.According to local media report, Thomsson - an aerospace engineering student at the university - had not been seen for several days before her body was found on July 12.

She had reportedly started missing lectures in February.

"She was last seen on July 3 by a domestic supervisor. Her room was checked daily and although she was never seen after this date, all of Georgianna's possessions were still in the room as if she was still living there.

On July 12, the domestic supervisor returned to the room to see if she had left and on entering found Georgianna hanging," the coroner added.

Local Merseyside Police have confirmed that officers are working to respond to the coroner's directions of a further probe to piece together the circumstances surrounding Georgianna's death.
Her father Seshiyan Thomsson, a policeman from Chennai, insists there is more than meets the eye.

'There is no fan, no iron rod in the room where she was found dead. How could she hang herself," he had said following a visit to the room where her body was found.

He has refused to accept his daughter's body until further investigations are carried out.

Iran ( Reports said that some 300 satellite dishes were collected and taken away from Citizens )

NCRI - The Iranian regime's repressive State Security Forces (Police) have raided people's houses in a district in the southern city of Shiraz confiscating their satellite dishes.
According to the reports received from Iran during the raid that took place in Pansad-Dastgah district of the city on Wednesday, June 24, many satellite dishes were collected.

Last week also, in a widespread attack to several villages in the province of Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari, the security forces collected people’s satellite dishes. Reports said that some 300 dishes were collected and taken away.
The people however disregarded the measure and a few hours later almost all collected dishes were bought and installed again.
Since early July the Iranian regime's state security forces have intensified raids on homes in a number of provinces in Iran.
A regime official recently admitted that the regime had failed in its bid to ban people from watching satellite TV channels.

Despite a 1994 law making satellite dishes illegal, up to 70 per cent of families have them and their use is increasing, state-run TV network boss Fardin Ali-Khah said.
"Although their use is now forbidden, they can be seen everywhere. Statistics show that the use of satellite dishes has never declined, and currently there is 50 to 70 per cent use of satellite dishes in Iranian families."
