Ex-president of the Alavi Foundation pleads guilty

AP: The former president of a foundation that prosecutors say has a history of legal entanglements over its alleged ties to Iran's government pleaded guilty Wednesday to obstruction. Farshid Jahedi, the ex-president of the Alavi Foundation, said during his plea in U.S. District Court in Manhattan that he tore up and threw away documents that he knew would be subject to a subpoena issued in connection with a grand jury investigation. In court papers, Assistant U.S. Attorney Harry A. Chernoff wrote that the government last year filed a forfeiture complaint alleging that the Alavi Foundation's sole partner in the ownership of a Fifth Avenue office tower was actually a shell company fronting for a secret interest held by Bank Melli, the state-owned bank of Iran >>>

What's with all the NIAC haters?


What do they have to do with alavi? Stop being such drones and go read what they are ACTUALLY about.




NIAC trying to change colors in front of our eyes

by seannewyork on

so funny that Trita is now trying to act like he has been on the side of the people.  He was always against change.

But the position he has had is now an embarassment.

No wonder NIAC has changed its position from "not being a human rights organization" to defenders of Iranians who are fighting this ugly regime.
