NCRI: Tehran has created a “top-secret committee” to provide false information to the watchdog International Atomic Energy Agency.
Iran is trying to deceive U.N. inspectors in charge of implementing last summer’s nuclear deal, according to a prominent Iranian dissident group, which claims that Tehran has created a “top-secret committee” to provide false information to the watchdog International Atomic Energy Agency.
According to the National Council of Resistance of Iran, the secret committee consists of top officials from Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and Ministry of Defense Armed Forces Logistics, who are “working to cover up” the potential military dimensions of Iran’s secret nuclear programs. The NCRI’s claim, revealed to journalists Wednesday, was not immediately verifiable.
The group is known for its controversial history in Washington but is seen to have deep sources inside Iran’s nuclear community. Its members have been credited with major exposes about Tehran’s activities. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/dec/2/iran-violates-nuclear-deal-with-lies-to-un-inspect/?page=all
8-23-15 The Iranian official who could be in charge of inspecting suspect nuclear sites as part of a side agreement with the international nuclear watchdog IAEA may be the same man who oversaw Tehran’s nuclear program a decade ago when it is suspected atomic weapons were being developed.
Dr. Ali Hosseini-Tash, currently the deputy secretary of Supreme National Security Council for Strategic Affairs, is the signatory on behalf of Iran to the agreement between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency IAEA, revealed last week by the Associated Press.

“Ali Hosseini-Tash is a senior IRGC commander, who has been in charge of advancing Tehran’s bomb-making projects for many years,” Shahin Gobadi, a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the NCRI told the Daily Mail.
“In this position, he has been intimately involved in every detail of the bomb-making program and is fully aware of the program’s vulnerabilities and concealment tactics,” he said
According to the agreement, the IAEA that would allow Tehran to use its own inspectors to investigate the Parchin facility, which is believed to have been the site of nuclear weapons work. The presence of Hosseini-Tash’s signature could add fuel to the fire of critics who say the agreement is akin to letting the cat guard the cream.
“Allowing the Tehran regime to inspect Parchin and provide the results to the IAEA is akin to allowing a murderer to investigate his own murder and provide the relevant DNA to the police,” Gobadi said.
In 2007, Hosseini-Tash was named as head to Iran’s Imam Hussein University, which is thought to be closely linked to the IRGC and Iran’s suspected military nuclear program, according to NCRI. http://www.timesofisrael.com/secret-iaea-deal-inked-with-reported-ex-head-of-iran-nuclear-bomb-effort/
