BRUSSELS, Sept. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The International Committee In Search of Justice (ISJ), a Brussels based NGO, has published a new research report titled "Review of Iran's Nuclear Weapons-Related Conduct: Two years after the implementation of JCPOA and IAEA report on Possible Military Dimensions of Iranian nuclear program."
Focusing on the past two years, the 24-page report drew upon publicly available information including the nuclear agreement (JCPOA), particularly its T-section, Tehran's position and replies in reference to "Final Assessment of IAEA on Past and Present Outstanding Issues regarding Iran's Nuclear Program", evidence of Iran's illegal procurements for its nuclear weapon and missiles programs, reports of its ballistic missile tests, and the April 2017 revelations by the opposition group, the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (MEK) regarding a previously unknown location that might be involved in the nuclear weapons program.
In a previous report, on November 20, 2014, ISJ provided a thorough review of questions regarding the Iranian nuclear program and especially its possible military dimensions. (http://isjcommittee.com/2014/11/examining-10-warning-signs-iran-nuclear-weapons-development)
The new report contains discussion of the August 2016 execution of Shahram Amiri, the Iranian nuclear expert who had escaped to the US in 2009 but returned to Iran in 2010. The report reviews Amiri's background and his research credentials, then establishes that he was a source in confirming the military nature of the Iranian nuclear program. The report pointed out that this is why he was executed one year after the conclusion of JCPOA negotiations.
ISJ recommends the following steps for a credible verification to ensure that Tehran's nuclear weaponization program has been abandoned:
1. All organizations affiliated with the organ responsible for manufacturing a nuclear weapon must be thoroughly inspected by the IAEA, its experts made immediately available for unrestricted interviews, and the results made public.
2. In accordance with the spirit of the nuclear agreement and to ensure transparency on the part of Iran, immediate and unhindered access to military sites must be guaranteed.
3. Tehran must be prevented from continuing activities related to missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads, as such activities are in violation of United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231.
ISJ (http://isjcommittee.com/) was registered in 2014 as a NGO including former officials and other dignitaries with an interest in promoting democracy and peace. Its President, Alejo Vidal-Quadras, a former professor of nuclear physics, was vice president of the European Parliament from 1999 to 2014.
