Response From MP Hélène Laverdière Regarding A Defamatory Article in Shahrvand By Shahram Tabe Mohammadi

On Nov 29, 2018 Shahrvand weekly paper published a defamatory report by Shahram Tabe Mohammadi. This report includes defamatory and baseless accusations against the Iranian Canadian Congress (ICC) and other hardworking volunteers and activists who support peace and diplomacy with Iran and advocate against Trump's sanctions on Iran. Since the author was reporting these accusations as a result of his meeting with the NDP Foreign Affairs Critic MP Hélène Laverdière in Montreal, the ICC Vice President Pouyan Tabasinejad and MP Laverdière's office discussed the matter on Friday and MP Laverdière personally sent an email to Pouyan Tabasinejad later during the day on Friday Nov 30, 2018.

Unfortunately Shahrvand Publications has a reputation of publishing defamatory reports and articles about hard working members of the Iranian-Canadian community and against the ICC. In previous occasions, Shahrvand even refused to publish responses to the accusations against us. We have sent the original response from MP Hélène Laverdière to Shahrvand and asked them to follow basic standards of ethics and publish it immediately. 

Here is the complete email from the NDP Foreign Affairs Critic MP Hélène Laverdière to the Iranian Canadian Congress (ICC):
