Iran's Most Wanted List

Alan Peters, AntiMullah:

One GREAT way to reduce the violent suppression of opposition by the mercenary (mostly non-Iranian) Basiji forces, the Revolutionary Guard elites, the Police and Security Forces or the Mullahs in general, in Iran, against those demonstrating for their freedom, imprisoned for having dared to voice an opinion or women lashed for showing their hair or holding hands in public with a man (both get whipped) or walking a pet or carrying one in public, is to make the perpetrators' names, addresses, phone numbers, vehicle license plates and home addresses known to everyone.

The Voice of Iran (KRSI) radio station broadcasting 24/7 out of Southern California into Iran has already begun doing this on their daily half hour of live call-ins from inside Iran. The callers, mostly on cell phones, provide this kind of information which is then broadcast LIVE back into the country. The information becomes available to everyone for immediate and future reference.

Consider the intended chilling effect of having your name and private details broadcast nationwide so you can no longer operate under the radar with any level of anonymity! So that your role in secret torture sessions suddenly beomes public knowledge - without giving up the source of the "outing" to suffer further retribution. Providing they survived the first round.

Clearly, attempts to settle some private scores will occur but in the scope of the bigger picture, this aspect becomes insignificant. Such private scores will naturally be aimed at a cleric or secret agent of the Mullahs, so aimed in the right direction.

Aliases used by various agents of the Mullahs and the military become known and as thisprocess progresses, the real names will come out, tearing that veil, too.

The list shown below is a starter and requires PHOTOS for my Rogues Gallery in my Graphics Blog section. Please post names, information and photos as comments, or a link to which I can go to find any of this. READ MORE

At this time, Activistchat.com is in the midst of compilation of information and documentation, including pictures videos, voice recordings, CD's and... for presentation to the competent tribunals of the western countries, regarding the international crimes instigated, planned, ordered to be carried out or committed against Iranians and others living in Iran and abroad since March 1979.
Given acquiring sufficient funding from the Iranians at home and abroad, they will engage reputable law firms and prepare the grounds to go after them as soon they land in Europe or possibly even in the U.S. Of course wearing the mantle of the "President" as does Ahmadi-Nejad, will make the task much harder but it is a great humanitarian challenge worth trying.
