NUFDI Statement on Regime Threats Against Iranian-Americans

NUFDI is deeply concerned about recent threats against Iranian-Americans in Maryland by an employee of the Islamic Republic Interests Section in Washington, D.C. This event, coupled with the physical assault of Iranian dissidents in London, are especially worrying given the Islamic Republic’s history of transnational repression, including the harassment, assault, kidnapping, and assassination of dissidents across the United States and Europe.

We urge all relevant federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to take appropriate action against Islamic Republic officials threatening and spying on Iranian-Americans. Furthermore, this incident highlights the urgent need for the United States to push its allies in the European Union and United Kingdom to designate the IRGC as a terrorist organization. NUFDI remains committed to advocating for the safety of all Iranian-Americans and calls on the United States to take decisive action against transnational repression by the Islamic Republic.
