The trial of Saddam Hussein will start on Wednesday 19th of October 2005.
We demand that Massoud Rajavi one of his closest allies, whose hands have been in many of Saddam’s crimes, also be put on trial.
The toppled regime of Saddam Hussein actively supported international terrorism, and the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organisation, led by Massoud Rajavi, was at the top of the list of these terrorist organisations.
The Mojahedin as part of Saddam’s military played a decisive role in the suppression of the internal uprisings in Iraq in 1991, and are responsible for the massacre of many Iraqi Shiites and Kurds who opposed Saddam. The best documented of these being the massacre of the Kurds in their uprising in March 1991.
The Mojahedin acting as ‘Saddam’s Private Army’ have actively participated in the war which Saddam Hussein waged against Iran between 1980 and 1988, engaging themselves in intelligence gathering for the Iraqi army as well as participating in joint operations with them.
Each and every military and terrorist operation carried out by the Mojahedin in Iran has been ordered directly by Saddam Hussein and his intelligence and secret services in Iraq.
On Tuesday 18th October 2005, Iran Peyvand Association will hold a Press Conference in Paris. The programme will include:
A documentary film exposing the Mojahedin’s role in the suppression of the uprising of the Iraqi people in 1991.
Video evidence, secretly filmed by Saddam’s own security services, showing the financial and spying relationship between the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organisation and Saddam’s regime.
Several former high ranking members of this organisation who have recently managed to get themselves out into Europe will speak and reveal up-to-date news and information about the Mojahedin, as well as talk about their own experiences in the Mojahedin under the rule of Saddam.
A new research paper published in 110 pages under the title of "Mojahedin Khalq Organisation: one of the reasons behind the existence of terrorism in Iraq" will be introduced.
The place and the time of the conference will be announced later.
