Calls for MKO expulsion from Iraq increased
On Satorday 18th, 2009 a conference held in the holy city of Karbala to discuss the negative effects of the existence of the Terrorist organization of Mujahedin in Iraq.
The participants demanded the organization out of their homeland and closure of their Camp [Camp Ashraf].
The Iraqi lawyer Zia Al-Jaberi in an interview with Al-Alam news channel said:” The Iraqi government and the House of Representatives have taken many actions in order to expel this terrorist Organization out the Iraqi soil.”
Zia Al-Jaberi added that in several paragraphs of the country’s constitution it is stressed that the Iraqi territory should not be used as a platform for the use of operations which may be harmful to the neighboring countries.
Member of Iraqi Center for Development Information; Manhal Morshedi also emphasized that despite the fact that the Iraqis see Mujahedin Khalq terrorist Organization [MKO] as a source of concern to Iraq as well as its neighboring countries, US is trying to exert illegal pressure to keep this organization in Iraq. Adding that the MKO’s presence in Iraq is illegal and unjustified and the reason is primarily their terrorist acts against Iraqi people.
The conference held while Iraqi government is seriously determined to close MKO’s case and to expel them out of the Iraqi soil since the group’s presence is a flagrant violation of the constitution and the sovereignty of Iraq.
