That this House condemns the Iranian regime’s failure to uphold its international obligations and demands recognition for the basic principles of human rights including freedom of religion and belief and comply with the basic rules of international law; expresses serious concern about the recent threats of security agents against the life of Dr Azmayesh which have been published online by agents of the Iranian regime; and calls on the Government to make representations to the Iranian Government that given the records of assassinations and terrorist activities of the Iranian regime outside of Iran, it is crucial to stop these activities, as the failure to do so will only lead to more deaths and further victimization of citizens.
