New information revealed about the case of Assadollah Assadi, Iran’s incarcerated diplomat-terrorist, suggests the mullahs’ network of espionage and terrorism is much wider in Europe than it appears. Thus, European officials should immediately act.#ShutDownIranTerrorEmbassies

Assadi was arrested in July 2018 after delivering a bomb to a terrorist couple,Nasimeh Na’ami &Amir Saadouni, in Luxembourg and tasking them to plant the bomb in the “Free Iran” gathering of the Iranian opposition in Villepinte, north of Paris,France.

@dw_persian's says German Federal Criminal Court's investigation on Assadollah Assadi, #Iran’s jailed diplomat, indicates mullahs’ network of espionage &terrorism in Europe is much wider than it appears.

No to granting asylum to fake asylum-seekers & No to citizenship 4 them.
2)
Assadi commanded a large network of people tasked with different missions incl. espionage in EU countries. One such network worked in Islamic Center of Hamburg which is recognized by BKA as #Iran regime’s center for espionage &export of fundamentalism.

Another issue that caught the attention of the German police is that Assadi had several receipts with him, indicating cash payments he made to some people apparently members of his terrorist network in Europe.

A good start would be to look into the activities of ppl like: Trita Parsi &Quicy Inst.,Negar Mortazavi,NIAC&all those affiliated with it, Hossein Mousavian,etc.
Many critics of #Iran regime argue for closer scrutiny of the mission & loyalty of groups like NIAC long before Afrasiabi’s arrest. Last year, @SenatorBraun,@SenTedCruz& @SenTomCotton wrote to US Attny Gen., urging a formal investigation into #Iranlobby.

#Iran’s UK ambassador @baiedinejad is furious over British MPs proposing to designate the regime’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) as a terrorist organization.

The IRGC is behind Iran’s regional terrorism drive & Baieidinejad’s boss, @JZarif, has close ties with the IRGC.
2)
Quoting @HanifJazayeri:

New @CommonsForeign report on Iran urges the UK to proscribe the IRGC as a terrorist group: committees.parliament.uk/publications/3…

The move has cross-party support, with 37 MPs signing a motion last year urging @GOVUK to join @StateDept in blacklisting IRGC.

Zarif is described as Iran’s “chief apologist.”

Baiedinejad follows his boss’ footsteps in whitewashing the regime’s crimes. He lied about regime authorities bulldozing evidence at the crash site of the Ukrainian Int'l Airlines flight #PS752.
