The Green Party of Iran condemns the expulsion of refugees from Iran

The government controlled IRNA news agency announced on Monday November 16th that the regime’s parliament has voted to expel from Iran all foreign workers not having work permits by the end of the year.

The Green Party of Iran believes that this action will severely affect the 2 million refugees presently residing in the country.  The Iranian regime’s pressure on the foreigners apparently was justified through the “employment policies” during the discussion over the third five-year economic, social and cultural development plan (2000-2005).

The Green Party of Iran condemns this act of inhumanity by the Iranian regime and draws the attention of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and all Green Parties and human rights organizations throughout the world to the precarious situation of refugees in Iran.
