How important is the trial of the MEK leaders?

Iranian judiciary's notice to MEK members

One of the important events in the past year was the historical trial of the leaders of the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK) and a number of its high-ranking members by the Iranian Judiciary. The trial is considered a turning point in the history of the biggest cult-like terrorist group in Iran.

As it was expected, to respond the court sessions, the MEK accelerated its well-paid lobbying campaign to push its paid sponsors towards putting more pressure on Iran. While the tenth session of the court was held at the end of the Iranian Year, at the beginning of the Iranian new year, 8 representatives of the US Senate submitted a plan demanding the protection of members of the MEK cult in the camp called “Ashraf 3” near Tirana, Albania.

The MEK is a terrorist cult according to the international criteria. It has carried out thousands of assassinations before the Iranian revolution and after that. In the 1980s after declaring an armed struggle against the Iranian government, the group launched a large-scale terror campaign against Iranian civilians and authorities. The president, the prime minister and dozens of government officials were killed in only two bombings run by the MEK.

In 1982, by the beginning of the war imposed by Iraq, the MEK went to Iraq and sided with Saddam Hussein and fought against its own country-fellow men. They aided Saddam in suppressing Iraqi Shiites and Kurds’ uprisings, and after the ceasefire between Iran and Iraq, thousands of the MEK fighters entered the country through the border. They were logistically supported by Saddam Hussein’s weapons and equipment. The cross-border operation, called Forough Javidan, was a complete failure for the MEK. They lost more than a thousand of their forces.

After the collapse of Saddam Hussein, the MEK was expelled from Iraq and was relocated in Albania. Having become far from the Iranian border, they continued to help the enemies of Iran. They aided Israel by spying Iranian nuclear facilities, and their agents conspired with Mossad agents to launch sabotage in the country.

The MEK even participated in the assassination of the Iranian nuclear scientists. By collecting information about these targets, and working as the operative arm of Mossad, the MEK agents accompanied Israel in committing the atrocious crimes against Iranian nation.

During the past decades, the true nature of the Cult of Rajavi has not been seriously revealed. The MEK terrorist leaders, the Rajavis, who committed bloody crimes in our country today take the gesture of defending human rights and democracy.
Holding a court to bring the leaders and commanders of the MEK to justice reminds people of the brutal crimes of the cult. The MEK has victimized innocent people and officials of Iran, those who could play a significant role in the construction and stability of the country.

Although the terrorist Cult of Rajavi enjoys the support of some political fractions in western countries, their trial provides an opportunity to review the cases of crimes and terrorist acts of this extremist cult. This trial reminds the public opinion inside and outside the country that Iran is the victim of MEK’s terrorism and that human rights violations in Iran were committed mostly by the MEK terrorist group. The world must understand how human rights have been violated in Iran with the assassination of thousands of Iranian civilians by the MEK terrorists.

The killing of each member of the Iranian nation by this terrorist cult could open a criminal case against its leaders and their operational teams. Now, by holding the court, these terrorists can be returned to the country under an extradition contract between Iranian and the hosting countries like France and Albania. Holding the trial for the MEK is a lawful and judicial action to pursue the rights of the Iranian nation. It is consistent with all international law conventions and could be executed according to them.
