NCRI - This morning in a press conference in Paris, Afchin Alavi, member of the NCRI Foreign Affairs Committee made new revelations about the nuclear program of the Iranian regime:

By changing the names and addresses of companies, the clerical regime attempts to conceal its activities from the eyes of the IAEA and neutralizing the UN Security Council sanctions.

Ladies and gentlemen,

As you are fully aware, on December 23, 2006, according to Resolution 1737, the UN Security Council imposed sanctions on 10 companies and entities that played a direct role in the clerical regime's nuclear and missile programs. Among these companies, four of them were companies that played a direct role in the Iranian regime's nuclear program. (The rest were entities)

According to information that we have received from inside of Iran, I would like to reveal that in a clear violation and in defiance of the UN Security Council resolution, by changing the names and relocating of at least two of these four companies, the mullahs' regime continues to use these companies in its nuclear program.

On the other hand we have found out that in order to expedite its secret nuclear project and in order to deceive and circumvent the UN and relevant international bodies and in order to continue its activities outside of control and inspection of the IAEA, the mullahs' regime has set up dozens of front companies. I will share with you details of five of these companies that have been established recently.

Some of the companies that I will expose today are part of a major company called "Energy Novin" (new energy) that acts as the mother company. The head of Energy Novin that is comprised of about 15 companies is Reza Aghazadeh (Head of Atomic energy Organization of Iran, AEOI and a Vice -President).

Relocation and changing the names of two companies under UN sanctions

1- Farayand Technique Company ( Technology of Centrifuge of Iran company)

In the list of companies and entities that were placed under UN sanctions, Farayand Technique is number five. Subsequent to its inspection by the IAEA, the name of this company was changed to Technology of Centrifuge of Iran Company (TCI). Farayand Technique Company is one of the main companies involved in manufacturing centrifuges. That is the reason for this company was placed under sanctions. The clerical regime changed the address of this company as well and relocated it to a new location in northern Tehran.

The head of this company is Jafar Mohammadi who has taken over Morteza Behdad recently. Jafar Mohammadi is one of the most senior experts in the Iranian regime in the field of manufacturing centrifuges. He was sent on loan from the Ministry of Defense, from the Mechanical Industries section, to Kala-electric Company to supervise the manufacturing of centrifuges. He is the number five of the UN Security Council list of persons involved in the nuclear programme.

In order to conceal its activities, this company has changed its address. Its new address is: Tehran, Saadat Abad, Kaj Square, Sarv Gharbi, Sina Mediacal Building, first floor, unit 8.
As a reminder, the former address of this company that was exposed by the Iranian resistance on August 2006 was: Tehran, Yousef-abad, 37th Street, number 1, third floor.

The factory of this company is located in Isfahan, Zobe-Ahan Highway, after highway police station, Siman Road, Ashtarjan industrial city, Sixth Avenue, building of the board of trustees of the industrial city, number 59.
The sign of the factory reads Farayand Technique.

I have to point out that since the factory has been inspected by the IAEA, the name of the factory and the sign outside of the factory has not been changed, but the name of the company and also its address have changed.

The head of factory in Isfahan is engineer Hassani.
The other members of the Board of Directors of the company are: Morteza Behzad, the Director General, and Seyed Amir Moaeyed Molaie, a member of the Board of Directors.

2- Pars Trash Company ( Rah Avard Kalaey Iran Company)

Pars Trash Company is number four in the UN Security Council list. The existence of this company was revealed by the Iranian Resistance for the first time. Subsequent to inspection of the company and its factory by the IAEA and since the clerical regime expected that the UN Security Council might impose sanctions, it changed the name of this company to Rah Avard Kalaey Iran Company, recently.

Pars Trash was place under the UN sanctions as a company involved in manufacturing parts of centrifuges.

It is very telling that the registration number of Rah Avard Kalaey Iran Company is 67977. This is exactly the registration number of Pars Trash Company.

According to the investigation of the Iranian resistance, the board of directors of the new company are exactly the same individuals of the board of directors of Pars Trash and there has not been any modification or changes in the board of directors.

According to reliable information, in addition to manufacturing parts of P-1 centrifuges, this company manufactures parts of advanced P-2 centrifuges as well.

The head of this company is Agha Zadeh and the head of its Board of Directors is Mohammad Hasssn Allah Dad.

The members of the Board of Directors are: Mohammad Hassan Allah DaD, Abdollah Joudat, and Hossein Akhgari. Mostafa Rouhi-pour is the Chief Inspector and Ali-Akbar Amini Parizi is the Alternate Inspector.

One of the plants of this company is located in Damavand road.
