Muthanna provincial council refused a government request for the transfer of Camp Ashraf to Samawah
Samawah: The Muthanna provincial council has refused a government request to transfer [the residents of] Camp Ashraf to the province of Muthanna, noting that they are known as the "hypocrites organisation" who have committed crimes against the Iraqi people and that they will disturb the security of the province.
A source in the provincial council, told our news reporter that "a request from a government committee came to the province for the transportation of Camp Ashraf to the province." Adding that, "the unequivocal request was turned down by the Department to maintain compliance with its Council and the Mayor when he told the President of the Council that "the hypocrites organisation" committed crimes against the Iraqi people and contributed actively to and were substantially involved in the suppression of the popular uprisings of 1991 in the south and north."
The source, who declined to be named, said: "The rejection of the Commission’s request matched the view that the" hypocrites organisation" will be a heavy burden on the people of this province which is peaceful and quiet." He added that "the existence of Camp Ashraf, especially in the countryside of Samawah would present major threats to its security and destabilize the province".
