1. The charges in this Indictment arise out of an ongoing investigation into the Government of Iran's efforts to assassinate, on U.S. soil, a journalist, author, and human rights activist who is a U.S. citizen of Iranian origin residing in Brooklyn, New York (the "Victim"). The Victim has publicized the Government of Iran's human rights abuses; discriminatory treatment of women ; suppression of democratic participation and expression; and use of arbitrary imprisonment, torture, and execution to target its political opponents; and has sought to mobilize public opinion in Iran and around the world to bring about changes to the regime's laws and practices, including in connection with the continuing protests against the regime across Iran.
