A member of the Iraqi parliament insisted that Iraq is firm in its decision to expel the anti-Iran terrorist group, the Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) from the country.
Muhammad Al-Hamidawi called the terrorist cult’s presence in Iraq “illegal”, adding that “the conditions for asylum seeking as well as the terms of Geneva Conventions do not apply to the members of the cult”. He said the Iraqi government “is firm and serious in expelling the MKO,” Habilian Association (families of Iranian terror victims) news website quoted Mehr News Agency as reporting.
“The MKO entered Iraq during Saddam Hussein’s rule just due to its enmity towards Iran. Now we should destroy this cult, a way of which is their relocation from Camp Ashraf,” said the member of Al-Fadhilah Islamic Party in the Iraqi parliament.
“The MKO’s presence in Iraq has made so many problems to our nation due to usurping their lands, but also it is illegal according to the Iraqi Constitution,” Hamidawi insisted.
He confirmed there were pressures on the Iraqi government not to expel the terrorist cult, insisting Iraq “is determined to expel the MKO”, since the cult has had “several interventions in Iraq’s internal affairs both now and under Saddam’s rule and has been in contact with some of those who are well known for their opposition to the current Iraqi political situation”.
