‘UK knowingly ignored truth about MKO’

Although the UK has been provided evidence of the terrorist nature of the MKO, it tends to turn a blind eye, a senior Iranian lawmaker Alaeddin Boroujerdi  says.

“During our discussions we have provided several delegations from the United Kingdom relevant documentation reveling the terrorist activities of the Munafiqin (Mujahedeen Khalq Organization),” Alaeddin Boroujerdi, the head of the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, said in a letter to his counterpart in the British parliament, Mike Gapes.

“They have even met with some of the victims of the MKO’s terrorist acts, but now the London Appeals Court has permitted a dangerous terrorist group to run in Britain,” he said.

Last month the London Court of Appeals ruled that there were "no valid grounds" to assert that a British panel made legal errors when it ordered the Mojahedin Khalq Organization to be removed from the terrorist blacklist.

“It is very unfortunate that your colleagues at the British Parliament are aware of the group’s criminal record, yet fail to react to the decision. The Parliament has even declined to mention these facts in their new inquiry titled ‘Global Security: Iran’,” Boroujerdi said.

The notorious Mujahedin Khalq Organization has a long and bloody history of targeting Iranian civilians and government officials.

It also assisted the deposed Iraqi dictator, Saddam Hussein, in the massacre of thousands of innocent Iraqis and is responsible for several acts of terror in Iran including the 1994 bombing of Imam Reza’s Shrine in Mashhad.
