An Iraqi lawmaker has reportedly revealed that the terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization
|MKO buying Iraqi politicians with USD5K monthly payments
(MKO) has been buying support for the cell by paying off senior Iraqi politicians and journalists.
The source, who wished to remain anonymous, told Habilian – an association that brings together families of those killed in terror operations across Iran – that one of the most senior Iraqi officials bribed is lawmaker and spokesman for the al-Iraqiya bloc Haidar al-Mulla, who has been receiving a monthly payment of USD 5,000 from the terrorist cell.
The official added that the list of the bribed Iraqi officials also includes Zafar al-Ani, former lawmaker; Sarmad Abdolkarim, Baathist refugee in Denmark who manages the Iraq4allnews.dk website; Safi al-Yaseri, author; and Hamid al-Mutlaq and Maysoon al-Damluji, both members of the Iraqiya party.
The Iraqi lawmaker said the hefty amounts were being paid to garner support for the MKO in Iraq and to buy condemnation of Iraqi policies towards the terrorist cell.
Last month, an award-winning investigative journalist revealed that numerous prominent US political figures are receiving “substantial fees” from the MKO to become the terrorist cell’s “passionate defenders.”
The Christian Science Monitor also reported last August that former US four-star generals, intelligence chiefs, governors, and political heavyweights had been paid “tens of thousands of dollars” to call for the US government to take the MKO off the terror list.
