IRAN’S Regime Targets Dual National Citizens and Foreigners


Despite several warnings from the US and the international community, Iran is still carrying out a systematic attack on foreign nationals entering Iran. According to one of our sources, ‘The Intelligence Organization of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC)’, has allegedly been designated for a secret mission by Armed Forces Chief of Staff.

“Secret agents are being used to flag Iranian nationalities or foreigners entering the country at the international airports across the country,” said our source whose identity has been kept confidential for security purposes.

The IRGC Intelligence Organization is sending its best men for specific training courses before dispatching them on their mission to airports and flights entering Iran.

The History of Kidnappings

The religious leaders/ mullahs of Tehran have a long history of abducting foreign nationals and even Iranians with dual nationalities as leverage for a prisoner exchange, blackmailings, and extortion. This hostage-taking behavior by the regime has deep roots as it has been responsible for it since the time it came into power back in 1979. The regime's Islamic street thugs, also known as the "Muslim Student Followers of the Imam's Line, had invaded and sieged the U.S. embassy compound, holding its staff hostage on November 4, 1979. The regime held fifty-two American diplomats and citizens hostage for 444 days, from November 4, 1979, until President Reagan's inauguration on January 20, 1981.

Data discrepancies make identifying the exact number of victims impossible

Over the years the Islamic Government of Iran has worked hard to cover its tracks so, little or no information can be found on the exact number of hostages taken by this Islamic government. According to Human Rights Watch, there are at least 14 such victims in jail in Iran. The most recent known kidnappings were on September 11, 2019, of three Australian citizens, who were imprisoned on false grounds. Two of them were released.

According to numerous sources, the individuals who have been sent to the regime's prisons are subjected to medieval violence inside these prisons. Among the torture methods employed against political detainees, is rape.

For instance, an individual who was allegedly accused of the vague charges of espionage in favor of Israel, has been raped by low-minded criminals inside the prison in exchange for communication services because "he was banned from calling his family by Mr. Mozafari, the former Adel Abad prison's chief in Shiraz,'' according to a blogged-report on The Times of Israel.

Kaveh Taheri (Twitter: @TaheriKaveh), American Truth Project contributor, is a Turkey-based Iranian Human Rights researcher and journalist who has worked exclusively on Middle East. Kaveh, who was a former political prisoner in Shiraz, had been sent to prison for his writings and statements on his websites and weblogs in Iran and fled the country through Turkey to save his life.
