The Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO), an anti-Iran terrorist group based in Iraq, has threatened to assassinate the chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Iraqi Media Network (IMN), Hassan Salman.
The Board of Trustees has decided to take legal action against the MKO in an Iraqi court, the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) reported on Thursday.
According to the report, the IMN Board of Trustees has shown unanimous support for Salman. They urged the network’s legal department to take the threat seriously and file a lawsuit against the terrorist cult.
Salman has been an outspoken critic of the MKO, often airing his views openly on Iraqi television live broadcasts.
The MKO terrorists are especially notorious for taking sides with former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein during the Iran-Iraq war.
The group masterminded a slew of terrorist operations in Iran and Iraq — one of which was the 1981 bombing of the headquarters of the Islamic Republic Party, in which 72 Iranian senior officials were killed.
Thousands of MKO members are now illegally residing in Iraq’s Camp Ashraf.
