{mosimage}Daily Telegraph - 'All our nuclear activities have been completely peaceful and transparent," Iran's president told the United Nations on Tuesday. But Mahmoud Ahmadinejad does not seem to have won over the doubters.  The Foreign Office says it has evidence that the mullahs of Iran are arming the Taliban in Afghanistan. While one can see that a pragmatic foreign policy may require us to work with countries that we do not like, that should surely not extend to banning Iran's main opposition group – the PMOI — which seeks to replace Mr Ahmadinejad's regime with a democratically elected, secular government.

They were among 35 members of both Houses of Parliament, from all parties, who have appealed to the Proscribed Organisations Appeal Commission against the insistence of the Government that the People's Mojahedin Organisation of Iran (PMOI) should be banned as a terrorist organisation.

Rule of law and due process are the bedrock upon which all liberty and justice are based.  Throughout history, untold numbers of brave men and women have paid a dear price in effort, fortune, and even life itself, to bequeath to us the rule of law. Unfortunately, through neglect and design, if not protected, the rule of law and all those values which it protects and we hold dear can be undermined. 

Press Association - The British Government was today accused of siding with the mullahs in Iran rather than with the “just” resistance movement of the Iranian people. Tory MP Brian Binley spoke out at a Westminster meeting of the British Parliamentary Committee for Iran Freedom, at which Britain was accused of trying to undermine the ruling of the European Court of Justice to remove the PMOI from the EU’s terrorist list.
