WASHINGTON, Aug. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Organization of Iranian American Communities-US (OIAC) welcomes the signing to law the bipartisan H.R. 3364, which was passed few weeks ago by a historical majority in both U.S. Chambers. This law which entails "Countering Iran's Destabilizing Activities Act of 2017," and subjects the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) to Executive Order 13224 sanctions for Specially Designated Global Terrorists entities is a long overdue milestone in the right direction that should commence a comprehensive strategy in dealing with Iranian regime's egregious human rights violations at home and support of terrorism in the region, particularly in Syria and Iraq.
As demanded by a large bi-partisan members of Congress, we also urge "the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the human rights situation in Iran and the United Nations Human Rights Council to create a Commission of Inquiry to fully investigate the (1988) massacre and to gather evidence and identify the names and roles of specific perpetrators with a view towards bringing them to justice."
Moving the IRGC out of Syria and Iraq will be a major initiative that pronounces the new US policy in support of order and stability in the region. It requires a meticulous implementation of the new law since IRGC in the last few decades has spread its tentacle on thousands of front businesses in Iran and in the region, plundering and funding network of proxies to make the hegemony of Ira's theocracy under the direct supervision of the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei a reality.
Organization of Iranian American Communities-US (OIAC) calls upon the world community to join and collectively help rid of the current Iran's global threat, noting that the ultimate solution is Iranian people and the ultimate leverage is engaging the organized Iranian resistance who has suffered for the last four decades.
