Information on whether the Iranpaad functions independently or in association with the Council of the Constitutional Monarchists [IRN18161.E]

According to its chief of public affairs in England, the Iranpaad (sometimes spelled also Iran-Paad) is an independent organization (19 Aug. 1994). Its relationship with the Council of the Constitutional Monarchists is one of cooperation, not affiliation or association (ibid.). Although the council is currently trying to join or form an alliance among the various monarchist organizations, the Iranpaad remains an independent organization that cooperates with and shares similar goals with the council (ibid.).

This response was prepared after researching publicly accessible information currently available to the DIRB within time constraints. This response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim to refugee status or asylum.
