'Spies' to Iran

Following the story made and broadcasted by ABC
journalists RICHARD ESPOSITO and BRIAN ROSS on May 23, 2008,
About the recent
developments in Iranian Balouchistan, the People Resistance Movement of Iran
(PRMI AKA former Jundullah), in addition to appreciating your efforts for making
such steps, we felt it is necessary to clarify some points as we noticed some
serious shortcomings in the above mentioned report, which were mainly
originated from your sources of information:
- A significant portion of the
report was based on wrong information from Iranian regime' sources. We are
surprised how a credible and well reputed
institution like ABC is not aware of lies being made by Iranian regime on
daily basis which is now is clear for entire world.
- The reports quoted a U.S
official that he and his colleagues are giving advice to the PRMI. We
should make it clear that the PRMI is a popular organization having its
roots among the people of Iran
particularly Balouchistan. It is an independent organization with no
connection to CIA or any other foreign agency, although the PRMI reserves
the rights to talk with any country on the issues of mutual concerns
without being obliged to take dictation from them. Spying for the CIA or
any other intelligence agency is simply a propaganda project by the
Iranian regime as usual in order to defame the movement. We reject the statements of the U.S officials and will
officially write to the U.S foreign office for their baseless claims.
We adamantly declare that we do not receive advice, financial aid, moral
support, or support of any kind from the United
State of America’s
government and its agencies or any other foreign county.
- As far as the members of the
PRMI are concerned, no one is taken into custody
nor is any one in that country to be arrested either. All of them are in
the cities of Iran
or in the mountains of Balouchistan. They are engaged in an urban
guerrilla defensive warfare and all our members are in Iran
indeed. How ever, according to reports, some Balouch people were arrested last year. Since then, the Iranian regime
is busily contacting Pakistani authorities to get them extradited for its
domestic propaganda consumption. The regime wants to publicize them as
members of PRMI thus undermine the confidence of its (PRMI) supporters and
weaken them psychologically.
- During its short life, the
group has undergone through a great transformation. It has expanded itself
into the entire Iran
and now thousands of people either are supporting this organization or
have joined it. New principles, positions and guidelines have been adapted
in them believe in federalism, democracy and democratic values has been
accepted as the main guiding light of the organization and the members.
Consequently, the organization has changed its name from
"Jundullah" to "People Resistance Movement of Iran".
PRMI is a self- defensive organization, which has been struggling in full
consistency with the United Nations charter and other human – friendly
documents for the attainment of the rights of the Balouch people. It
is striving for a democratic Iran
where fundamental human rights are respected and valued. Obviously,
towards this goal PRMI is not going to violate any principle that it is
striving for. To be noted
that we strongly believe in civil campaigns but since the Iranian
theocratic regime has banned all political activities in Balouchistan,
there is no any other alternative but to turn to the same strategy that
the government uses against the Balouch and the Iranian people as whole.
Our struggle for democracy and human right is based on United nations human rights charter and is defensive in
nature, we defend out home turf and only when the Iranian security forces
come to attack us, therefore our organization can not be classified as a
terrorist organization as we are not the aggressor.
if the ABC News is interested to
know about PMRI, we would welcome your team at the mountains of Balouchisatn,
facilitate its travel and provide it with full security, and we expect ABC
news and its affiliates to correct this story at its earliest.
