"Nemazee Vs. SMCCDI/Pirouznia" trial opens on April 12th

SMCCDI (Information Service)
April 8, 2005

The "Nemazee Vs. SMCCDI/Pirouznia" trial is to open, in
Dallas,Texas, on Tuesday April 12, 2005, at 09:00 AM. The
trial follows a long legal procedure raised over the
influence exerted by some of the Islamic regime's
apologists on the US Electoral process and their desperate
try to promote relations between the US and the unpopular
Mullahcracy in Iran.
http://www.daneshjoo.org/article/publis ... 3162.shtml

A mandatory mediation which took place on March 15th in
Dallas, didn't end to any type of agreement. Aryo B.
Pirouznia, the Movement's Coordinator, refused to give up
to the requests made by Nemazee's lawyers in order to
retract the accusations made against their controversial
client.

Nemazee, a mega financier based in New York, has been a
major source of contribution to U.S. Democratic nominees
and officials. As a part of his rewards, he was sent by
President Clinton among the U.S. delegation to France in
order to assist the Iran-US game in the last Soccer World
cup. He was also nominated as to become the US Ambassador
to Argentina but his nomination did not go through
following the publication, by Forbes Magazine, of an
article revealing some of his dark activities and financial
records.
http://www.daneshjoo.org/interestingart ... 3046.shtml

Nemazee later ended up as a high rank official of the
notorious "American Iranian Council" (AIC) which is headed
by Hooshang Amir-Ahmadi who is known as the "Broker of
Death" by many Iranians. This lobby group is well known for
actively pushing for the promotion of US ties with the
Islamic regime. Nemazee, as its board member, is known for
having made public speeches, in presence of various US
lawmakers including Senator Kerry, promoting ties with the
Mullahs regime.

According to the public statement made by one of his
colleagues, it was Nemazee who opened the way for the group
to the highest levels of the U.S. Democratic Party. He had
even introduced the gang to Senator J. Biden who was
rewarded by an astonishing fundraiser held at IMAN Islamist
center of Los Angeles. Biden is known for having promoted
ties with the theocratic regime and IMAN's founder is also
a board member of AIC.
http://www.daneshjoo.org/article/publis ... 1847.shtml

The group was discredited by the media following its
constant denouncement by groups such as SMCCDI, the
Presidency of George W. Bush, and in the aftermath of the
9/11 tragedy. Nemazee and several other board members
officially resigned from AIC and started to build up new
entities such as IAPAC and NIAC who are in close
collaboration. Officially, these two groups are not
involved in U.S. policy in reference to Iran but the
reality is something else as they are playing a more subtle
game, having the knowledge that they are under constant
watch.

Another of Nemazee's closest friends, Faraj Aalaei, is also
co-founder of IAPAC. Aalaei's wife, Susan Akbarpour, has
been the subject of an investigation report titled, "Dirty
Moolah," published in The American Spectator by Kenneth
Timmerman. The report revealed Akbarpour's close
connections to various Islamic regime circles including the
Rafsanjani clan, as well as her goals of promoting the
Islamic Republic in the U.S.
http://www.kentimmerman.com/TAS%20Akbarpour.pdf

The knowledge of Nemazee's background, activities, and dark
records brought SMCCDI to protest against the presence of
Senator Kennedy at IAPAC's launch gala in July 2003.
Exposed, Nemazee first threatened suit in September 2003,
but stopped short of suing SMCCDI and its Coordinator.

In February 2004, the Movement addressed a firm protest
letter to Presidential Candidate John Kerry for some of his
remarks and actions in reference to the Mullahcracy.
Senator Kerry had stated during his campaign that, "Iran is
becoming democratic" and, in a controversial e-mail sent to
democrats abroad, promised to establish ties with Iran if
elected. The content of the e-mail was published in the
Iranian media.
http://www.daneshjoo.org/article/publis ... 3130.shtml

Making matters worse, Senator Kerry proposed later "to make
a nuclear deal" with the fanatic mullahs.

Nemazee, who is also a close friend and a main fundraiser
of John Kerry, sued the Movement and its Coordinator, for
10 Million of dollars each, before getting sued himself for
a frivolous lawsuit. Many believe that he hoped to silence
the Movement by such miscalculation which will fuel the US
media in an electoral context.
http://www.daneshjoo.org/smccdinews/art ... 4293.shtml

In a move which was quite unnecessary and unprecedented for
a defamation case, Nemazee and his legal counsel tried to
get the names of all SMCCDI members and affiliates,
including those involved with this opposition group inside
Iran. Such a request is not only unnecessary for this case,
but would have resulted in the endangerment of the lives of
those SMCCDI members inside Iran who are opposing a regime
which has been notorious for the imprisonment, torture, and
execution of such political opposition activists.

For this reason, Pirouznia stood firm in refusing to give
in to the requests of Nemazee and his legal counsel even
with the declaration that he could be jailed for resisting
the request which would have undermined the privacy and
security of SMCCDI's members and affiliates.
In a revealing move, Nemazee and his legal counsel
retracted their request for acquiring the SMCCDI affiliate
names after articles in the Washington Times and FrontPage
Magazine shed light on Nemazee and his cause.
http://www.daneshjoo.org/article/publis ... 3216.shtml
http://www.daneshjoo.org/article/publis ... 3220.shtml

Tens of other articles were written in newspapers such as
the Washington Times, New York Sun, Los Angeles Times,
WorldNet Daily, FrontPage Magazine, Insight Magazine and
WorldTribune.Com, speaking of the case and/or mentioning
its ramifications. Tens of radio talk shows across the U.S.
gave coverage to the case, especially in Florida and Ohio,
by speaking to the Movement's Coordinator, the SMCCDI legal
team, or advisers.
http://www.daneshjoo.org/article/publis ... x_36.shtml

A Press Conference was even held at the Washington DC's
National Press Club on October 14, 2004, during which the
SMCCDI Coordinator denounced Nemazee's activities and his
try to silence the Movement. Several speakers, such as the
famous investigative reporter, Kenneth Timmerman and Jerome
Corsi, were among the panelists discussing "Islamic Regime
Influence in the U.S." beside Aryo B. Pirouznia.
http://www.daneshjoo.org/article/publis ... 3241.shtml

The prospect of such a public scandal was to the point that
a desperate Nemazee hired the paid services of an
unscrupulous PR adviser named Eleanor Benador in order to
carry a smear campaign intending to diminish the impact of
the press conference. Benador had even made an unsuccessful
trip to Dallas, earlier in summer, in order to dissuade
Aryo B. Pirouznia to counter sue Nemazee.
http://www.daneshjoo.org/smccdinews/art ... 4316.shtml

Nemazee acknowledged her hiring during his mandatory
deposition made under oath.
http://www.daneshjoo.org/article/publis ... 3250.shtml

The Movement believed that standing firm against Nemazee
and his colleagues is the correct thing to do. They knew
very well that most of those Iranian opponents or Americans
who were declaring support or speculating and benefiting
from the case will leave them by themselves after the U.S.
elections of last November. Such a prediction proved to be
correct as the SMCCDI and its Coordinator are facing
Nemazee's powerful silence machine alone.

A specific website with information regarding this case has
been created by SMCCDI's legal team under the name of
www.regimeinfluence.com

"Nemazee Vs. SMCCDI/Pirouznia" trial postponed

SMCCDI (Information Service)
April 11, 2005

"Nemazee Vs. SMCCDI/Pirouznia" trial which was to start
tomorrow, in Dallas/Texas, has been postponed due to
court's busy schedule. The trial is to take place by end
summer at a date to be determined later.
