That this House is extremely concerned by the growing domestic human rights violations in Iran and the high number of executions; highlights the role of Islamic Revolutionary Guards' (IRGC) increase in its domestic crackdown, including the arrest of activists, dissidents and dual nationals on trumped-up charges; is very disturbed by Iran’s malign influence in the region through the IRGC, its Quds Force and its proxies that have participated in the slaughter of Syrian people, which the Government and many of its allies have described as war crimes; notes that IRGC plays a destabilising role in Iraq by providing training, funds and arms to paramilitary groups in that country; warns that Iran's continued ballistic missile tests are a threat to the region; believes that the regime and IRGC must know that their violations of human rights at home and warmongering abroad will not be tolerated; reiterates National Council of Resistance of Iran president-elect Mrs Maryam Rajavi's call on the international community for the complete removal of the IRGC and its proxies from Syria, Iraq and the region as a vital step to stabilise the Middle East; and urges the Government to condemn the IRGC for its serious violations of human rights and support for terrorism.
