A former member of the anti-Iranian Mujahedeen-e Khalq Organization (MKO) has denounced Britain and the West for supporting the internationally condemned terrorist group.

In an interview with Press TV’s political program ‘The Monarchy’, former MKO member Massoud Khodabandeh pointed out that the anti-Iranian terrorist group would not survive without support from Britain and other Western states.

“I don’t see any terrorist organization capable of continuing, unless somebody wants it. Somebody has got to want this terrorist organization [MKO], somebody has got to finance it and somebody has got to arm it,” Khodabandeh said.

“One of the reasons that I am saying they have support is; not facing them directly to stop their violent activities in the West and to stop their money laundering in the West. When I say money laundering, I have been in it, I have seen it. This is not an unknown concept for the British government”, he added.

This comes as an unnamed British company recently bought the movable property of Camp Ashraf, located in the eastern Iraqi province of Diyala near the Iranian border, worth $25 million. The UK company also plans to buy the former home of the MKO terrorists.

During the interview, Khodabandeh was asked if the MKO terrorists pose a threat to British citizens. The former member replied by referring to the incident in 2003 where two members of the MKO cult died while setting themselves on fire in London, as well as other members of the group carrying out the same act in other European capitals.

“Can you imagine if someone can burn himself or herself by order? It is much easier to kill me,” Khodabandeh warned.

Moreover, Khodabandeh explained that the current members of the MKO at the camp in Iraq are treated like hostages and are denied being up-to-date with modern society such as; not being able to use a mobile phone and not understanding the changes in the language of the people of Iran.
