Photo essay: National gathering of police chiefs

by Rafiei & Sharifi Nasab
Meeting of police chiefs from provinces throughout Iran, December 23, 2009. Neither Fars nor Borna news agencies provided their names. Photos by Ali Rafiei and Shahrouz Sharifi Nasab. But the head of the "prevention" police force, according to his name tag, is Sardar Bahram Norouzi who was the former commander of the Rasool Akram police force and appointed to his new position earlier this year.


SP, are'nt you always?

That is the essence of who/what you and your beloved IRR are.

I was right

by Sargord Pirouz on

I've checked: "Rasoul Akram" refers to a IRIPF operational base in southeastern Iran (typically engaged against threats such as Jundullah).

I am just very curious: How come they can't take a shower more than once a month?! I heard a lot of not taking shower after Maziar Bahari got released by IRI....what is wrong with taking shower? Is that because these honchos are 24 hours on duty for IRI;  the protests can break out during their shower? so they have to be alert and get ready to defend IRI all the time?

Ugliest Bunch of Police-Wannabe's

They all look like Arabs. Not handsome Northern lebanese, Palestinian, Syrian Arabs but they look like Yemeni, Saudi, Kuwaiti Arabs.

Their qualifications to get hired or promoted are:

Must attend all friday prayers. His wife must wear black Chador. Must have memorized the whole Koran. Must bow to all mullahs and obey all particulary the ugly one at the table, must be first a muslim then a regime protector but not have any nationalistic characteristics. Must not shave. Must not shower anymore than once a month. Must not Iron or dry-clean his clothes. Must be willing to shoot and beat any Iranian who would demand freedom, human rights or honesty from the regime.

OMG Faramarz_Fateh,

Hanging of the Mullahs at the trees on Pahlavi street was what my father predicted ca. 30 years ago as we were driving on Pahlavi street. 

Bless his soul, you gave me a flash in the memory lane.


laat o loot

by rustameiran on

Once we are victorious against this mob, I suggest that all these animals should be put in cages in and around their first master's tomb,(the godfather of this mafia) for a week for public display where people can at least spit in their faces.The tomb itself should be converted to a memorial where, all the photos available of the multitude of murdered people by this regime,should be put up so people will never forget! Then they can join  their  master in hell ! The rest of these creatures should be sent to the kavir for the rest of their miserable life to plant trees...that'll be one useful thing in their entire life. I have reserved a special cage for our friend Sargorde Bakhteh (if he hasn't killed anyone, which i doubt), after which he can rest in his tent in the kavir for the rest of his criminal life. Is that ok with you jenab Sargord? By the way I don't think you are even an Ostovar let alone a sargord. Just an armchair hizbollahi/pasdar who's spying on your compatriots.

SP, there is no discussion here. That's what you don't get

by Hovakhshatare on

You as an IRR agent and according to yourself some sort of military character, come here pretending to have 'discussion'; rather poorly and amateurishly try to bring angles that are irrelevant, often of no value and then sit on a stand with your claims of connection to 'higher' ups at various places. You are haveing 'discussion' with who? You are supporter of a murderous regime, claim country is generally calm, speak of these crooks in 'normal'  terms and so on. The essence of what you support is about forcing, subjugating, beating down, theft, plunder and stone age conduct. And those terms you refer to will be used as long as you and your type are around.

Now the Iranian people speak and you need to zip it because discussions ended a few months ago, as did hope of any reform for this regime. So please stop discussing on this or any other thread as you suggested you will do.

I have covered you on several threads. go find your cubicle, have a chai, pretend like you are working and collect your blood money. To ra ba nabarde daleeran che kar? 

The Phantom Of The Opera

An optical illusion

by The Phantom Of The Opera on

Don't for a moment assume, this gathering is a think tank assembly whose purpose and function would result in adopting a comprehensive manual/directive as to how to defeat the opposition; this conference is only a show. The real thing is held behind closed doors with instructions/case studies/suggestion provided by North Korean, Chinese, Cuban, Russian and, Venezuelan agents.

It's the business as usual; the Shah's security forces, for instance,  relied on Israeli intelligence instructions extensively as well. 

The Pahlavis and all mullahs must disclose the source and the amount of their wealth.

Trees of Pahlavi Street have a purpose

by Faramarz_Fateh on

One day soon, you will see likes of these losers as well as akhoonds, heads of basiji and pasdarn organizations hanging from the trees lining the sides and middle of Pahlavi street.

Sort of like Chritsmas ornaments.


Niloufar Parsi


by Niloufar Parsi on

you really add a very unusual perspective to the debate. it is good for us to hear it.

that the system has a real function to perform cannot be denied. in fact, if we want to defeat it, perhaps we need to know exactly how it works. we know its effect, but do we know how it really works, system-wise? the iranian government's capacity to organise and to adapt to challenges - internal and external - has been proven over and over. it should be normal to discuss its internal workings so we can overcome them more easily. for one thing, these pictures makes these individuals easier to identify - whether this happens sooner or later.

what do you think is being discussed? Ashura? what is their tactic likely to be?

and how much support is there in the force for basiji ideology? are they fully coordinated with and supportive of the basij in recent events?

Think about it

by Anonymous Observer on

these murderers are "commanders" now.  But how do you think they climbed up the ladder in IRI's mafia?  Merit?  Puhleez!!!!  The only way for these vermin to have gotten where they are today is to have shown absolute loyalty to their mafia bosses, and that, in the organized crime world (which the IRI is a part of) means obeying the ultimate order of the boss, i.e., killing someone.  These bastards were all probably firing squad members, or execution crane operators, back in the 1980's when they were killing Iranians by the thousands.  That's how they got where they are today.

Emil & Statira:  also think about this: this is how they look when they are at an important conference and are told that reporters will be present to take their pictures.  One can only imagine what they would look like on an ordinary day.  They probably don't even wipe themselves when they go the bathroom. :-)

Has anyone compared these pictures to the picture of 1978 Shah’s Air force Generals?  One always wonders what happened to the class of people we had in Iran’s society.  It seems that someone deliberately cherry picked bunch of “obash” and put them in charge of police and law enforcement group. 

On the other hand these “obash” are perfect as our generals with the idiotic ahmadinejad as the president of the country.

Well, Hovakhshatare, if that's that's the actual limit of your capacity to see, read and offer in such a reduced form of commentary, it isn't nearly enough for me to continue this discussion.

Have to say, the intellectual level of discussion from some of these commenters is disappointing. How many times can a person read or comment "Arab", "IRR", "Bastards", "Thugs", etc. and not become totally dissatisfied by its very tediousness?  It's almost like 1 out 20 or even 1 out of 30 comments offers anything beyond a knee-jerk reaction. 

I hate to say it, but this is really stereotypically "exile". 


SP, what part of 1,2,3 don't u understand?

by Hovakhshatare on

This picture show of emptiness and incompetence is:

1-not Iranian or national

2-not law or enforcement

3-not agency

Now go bring your supervisor. Perhaps he can be a bit more 'sophisticated' than what you are blurping. Spend your time getting your passport ready if you are not already out.

Sargord Pirouz

Some of you folks are really tedious

by Sargord Pirouz on

The subject of this article is Iran's national law enforcement agency. By my comments, I've clarified some of the authors' details, and provided a few observations from a law enforcement perspective.

However some of you have worked yourselves into such an emotional tizzy fit, you're trying desperately to read some sort of political position out of my comments. Well, if you're so blinded by emotion, and unsophisticated in your observations of the news, so be it. But some of us feel a need to be better informed.

Any idiot can rant like a lunatic at what he sees and reads on a web report. But some of us can actually keep a cool head and provide more detailed descriptions for what's presented to us, and offer a brief analysis from such. Of course, if this is beyond your lessor needs, go right ahead and continue with your less informed rants, just like an old fashioned peanut gallery.

well said Hovakhshatare

by gitdoun ver.2.0 on

i think u just tore Sargord a new azz hole for khamenei to enjoy later this weekend. i'm sorry Sargod i know i just insulted your divine messiah khamenei but i promise to go later repent. Or if u can Sargord please recite Dua Tawasol from Mofatee Jannan and make tawwasol to Ayatullah al Uzama Imam Syed Ali Khamenei Salawatullahu alay wa'lleh, for me so that i am forgiven inshallah.

You are a real loser SP, even by IRR's below ground standards

by Hovakhshatare on

I wonder how many prozacs and Lithium pills you take a day to feed your problems.

'IRR law enforcement'? IRR is the definition of lawlessness.

'...histories of dealing with anti-establishment..'? Islamic regime is not an establishment, it is a whorehouse that defines anti-humanity anti-decency, and anti-normal. Their whole existence has been about crushing people since day one so they are quite good at it. Their problem is this is People of Iran now not individuals so your gang up and rape techniques won't work anymore. You and your whole crowd is done with.

So, since you are beyond hope of a conscience attack, I strongly recommend that you go back to whatever desk they assigned you to, pretend you are working and collect your blood money.

Sargord Pirouz


by Sargord Pirouz on

You make it sound amusing. I'm sure it isn't, for anyone involved.

"Coordinate" refers to unit movements from province to province (such as the current convergence at Isfahan/Qom), as well as intelligence exchanges, logistics and other related aspects of law enforcement.

IRI law enforcement is currently facing its biggest challenge to date. Unlike Western law enforcement agencies which have histories of dealing with anti-establishment movements and mass demonstrations (such as the US during the late 1960's, early 70's), this is all pretty much new to the IRIPF. So expect a learning curve.


looking at their faces

by HollyUSA on

It looks like a gathering of the severely mentally ill, in uniform...and on second thought that really is what they are.

BTW Sargord, you belong.

gitdoun ver.2.0

very depressing

by gitdoun ver.2.0 on

how can these cops go against the people ??? im willing to bet atleast half of them deep deep down want democracy for their country. they're doing khamenei's bidding for what ? a paycheck ??? history is repeating itself over and over and over again. Back in the 70's cops were putting down protests and beating/jailing iranians left and right as all part of the "job"; just for a paycheck to feed their families.  and now in 2009 it's the same shit but for a different dictator. 


Desperate meeting

by mahmoudg on

Just to decided how many more to kill.  I doubt any one of them has repented or will repent.  they will kill to ensure the longevity of their own positions.  This is what islam has taught them.


all kidding aside, these guys have gathered for un-holy business

by MM on

While I agree that these gentlemen look Neanderthal-like, dirty, smelly and ..... (cf., compare picture #19 to the reconstructed picture of a Neanderthal in the link), they have gathered here, I assume, to discuss the latest demonstrations in Iran and to destroy any anticipated ones in the bloody month of Moharram.

Conference notes

by Sargord Pirouz on

They do look grim, I'll give you that.

Translation note: "police prevention" = (investigative) law enforcement

A couple of Brigadier Generals (Sartip), including Bahram Norouzi, a lot of Colonels (Sarhang), at least one Captain (Sarvan) and a police band (would like to hear a sound bite).They're all IRIPF (Western designation: Islamic Republic of Iran Police Force) or NAJA.

I believe "Rasool Akram" refers to a NAJA (IRIPF) unit / AO, not IRGC.

These high ranking police officers obviously have much to discuss and coordinate, in this extraordinary year for Iranian law enforcement.
