Appeal to Freeze Iranian Government's Assets - FDI


The Foundation for Democracy in Iran is launching the FDI Appeal to identify and freeze Iranian government assets around the world. Learn what you can do to help this effort below.

FDI believes that the ONLY way to seriously prevent the Islamic Republic of Iran from pursuing clandestine nuclear research is by hitting the regime and top regime leaders in the pocket book. By denying the regime access to international financial markets, the world community can cripple the regime’s ability to sell oil, buy weapons, and finance its terrorist networks around the world.

This is the single most effective sanction that could be imposed on the Islamic Republic.

FDI believes that tough measures designed the isolate the Tehran regime will encourage the Iranian people in their quest for freedom against the tyranny of a clerical elite and their Revolutionary Guards enforcers, as personified by the current president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The problem with today [in] Iran is not nuclear weapons, but nuclear weapons in the hands of a terrorist regime. If the problem were the weapons alone, we should all be worried about Great Britain, which became a declared nuclear weapons power more than five decades ago.

What you can do:
On Friday, Jan. 20, 2006, the Islamic Republic began shifting an estimated $30 billion to $50 billion in foreign reserves in Europe to financial safe havens around the world. This extraordinary effort mirrors regime efforts in 1979 to shelter Iran’s overseas assets before sanctions could kick in.

This time, however, the international community had no ready plan to freeze Iranian government assets. So far, the regime has been able to shelter billions of dollars of cash it can use to pursue nuclear weapons programs and finance terrorism. But by acting quickly, the international community can freeze billions more.

Who can doubt that the threat from the Islamic Republic of Iran is infinitely greater today than it was in 1979, when terrorists in Tehran seized 52 U.S. diplomats hostage? With Shahab-3 missiles aimed at Israel, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and others, a terrorist regime in Iran is trying to hold the whole world hostage, in a deadly game of nuclear blackmail.

The Foundation for Democracy in Iran today is launching an appeal to individuals and government experts around the world, to help identify and freeze Iranian government assets worldwide.

Lovers of a free Iran! If you believe you have information that could help to identify foreign bank accounts, corporations, real estate and other material assets controlled by the Tehran regime or top regime officials overseas, join the FDI Appeal by contacting us at the following email: exec@iran.org. All replies will be kept confidential.

Many of these assets are held through front companies, cut-outs, and bearer-share corporations. We call on your assistance in helping to identify and document these entities.

We need your help to identify the safe havens‚ where Iran has transferred its foreign exchange reserves. If you have knowledge of the latest Iranian government currency transfers, please contact us at the following e-mail: exec@iran.org Safe havens will no longer be safe once their identity is known.

Similarly, if you have information or contacts or can yourself help in the effort to convince world leaders, parliaments, and opinion-makers to join us in tracking the Tehran regime's foreign terror and weapons stash, please contact us. All replies will be kept confidential.

Stop Iran's Nuclear Blackmail Now!
