Director of the Iran-based Nejat [Rescue] Association’s Foreign Relations Department, Arash Sameti, said the United States refuses to hand Camp Ashraf over to the Iraqi government.
Most of the MKO members currently in Camp Ashraf are ailing, and being physically and mentally abused by their terrorist leaders, he added.
“We urged the European officials to open Camp Ashraf doors to doctors and human rights organizations and rescue the trapped members who don’t want to be part of this terrorist group anymore,”Sameti elaborated.
“We welcome the Iraqi government’s decision to take over the control of the Ashraf Camp and seek the European countries’ support for the release of its members.”
After the US-led invasion of the country, the US put the members under protection in north Iraq amid reports that they had been used by Washington for espionage and violence-related activities.
Iraqi government officials believe the Mujahedeen Khalq Organization is playing a significant role in fueling violence and insecurity in the country. They have banned any deal with members of the MKO, calling on the US to stop supporting the terrorist group.
