Deputy US Special Envoy for Iran, Abram Paley, has voiced concern regarding Iranian government supporters attacking peaceful protesters demonstrating around the world against the regime.

“Freedoms of peaceful assembly and expression are essential human rights, and efforts to silence these voices are unacceptable.”

On Tuesday, a US court issued a temporary order against Ramezan Soltan-Mohammadi, an employee of the Islamic Republic’s Interests Section in Washington DC. Soltan-Mohammadi was caught on video threatening Iranian protesters with death during a May 22 rally outside a memorial service for Raisi in Maryland.

The court’s order prohibits him from making any contact, threats, or approaching the residences and workplaces of the protesters, as reported by the National Solidarity Group for Iran.

However, Iranian Americans are asking the Biden administration for a more forceful response to the incident, some demanding that Mohammadi should be expelled from the United States.

In another event, an Iranian protester sustained a severe spinal injury following an attack by Islamic Republic loyalists in London on Friday. The attack, targeting a group of Iranian dissidents celebrating the death of Ebrahim Raisi outside a community center run by regime loyalists, resulted in injuries to at least four people.

The attack has sparked widespread condemnation from political activists and opposition figures such as Iranian exiled Prince Reza Pahlavi and leading activist Masih Alinejad.
