Al-khaddran: We have set up a lawsuit against the Mojahedin Khalq
Governor of Khales, Khalis Uday Al-khaddran, said he had filed a lawsuit on behalf of the citizens of Khales against the Mojahedin organization for the crimes perpetrated against them. Al-khaddran said that the MKO has held around 6000 dunums of land in Khalis district for more than 18 years. This organization was the right hand of the deposed (Saddam) regime and played a prominent role in sheltering and supporting what he described as (criminals of the state).
Al-khaddran added: "We hope the new government will remove this Organization from the land of Iraq and enforce the Constitution, which provides that Iraq not be used as a base for aggression and harm to neighbouring countries that enjoy good relations with them". At the same time I am requesting from humanitarian and international organizations that they find an alternative place for the organization and take them out of Iraq.
Diyala has seen a significant improvement in security since last July after the Camp of New Iraq (formerly Ashraf) came under the control of the Iraqi government, which has in turn offered MKO members that they may return to either Iran or to any other country. They do not come under the rules which apply to refuges or those with families within Iraq according to International law.
