Fear of Uprising: Iran’s Regime Arrest Students and Families with Political Ties

Iran regime has started a new wave of arrests of students, families with previous political ties, and potential supporters of the PMOI (People's Mojahedin Organisation of Iran). The regime wishes to suppress an inevitable uprising post coronavirus.

The arrested will be exposed to several hours of interrogation, psychological pressure, physical torture and mock executions in order for them to confess to made-up crimes on state TV to install fear into viewers.

Two excellent university students, Ali Younesi and Amir Hossain Moradi were arbitrarily arrested along with 18 other's in early April. The Iranian regime has yet to trial them and they have been detained for allegedly having connections with the PMOI, although they have yet to provide any evidence for this allegation.

According to the Iranian Resistance another group of 10 young people were arrested in Mashhad recently. The detainees have been interrogated for several hours under torture aiming to obtain information about their relationship with the PMOI to discover why and how young people have been attracted to the opposition group.

These arrests have been taking place due to fear of another uprising which would be the result of regime’s oppressive and corrupt social and economic policies.

In mid-May, Ali Khamenei, the supreme leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran expressed his fear of another anti-government uprising supported by the PMOI supporters and its Resistance Units.
