Iran Update



ISDCI morns the loss of its co-founder and president, Lord Peter Archer of Sandwell.

Lord Archer was a great friend of the Iranian people in their struggle to achieve human rights and freedom in their country.   He was a member of the British Parliamentary Committee for Iran Freedom. He was also a great friend of residents of Camp Ashraf and worked very hard to protect their rights.  He played a great role in the removal of the Iranian resistance from the blacklist in the United Kingdom, along side of the late Lord Corbett.

Lord Archer was a great advocate of human rights and democracy. He was one of the original founders of the Amnesty International Committee.  In 2010, he raised issues on behalf of Amnesty International in the House of Lords, such as Camp Ashraf in Iraq and the International Criminal Court..

ISDCI extends its condolences to the family, colleagues and friends specially his while Mrs. Margaret Smith and their son.
