Germany to exercise caution before accepting Mojahedin Khalq as genuine refugees
According to the [German] Interior Ministry, Federal Government checks include assessing a large number of members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran in Germany.
About 100 of the group, which is based in Camp Liberty, formerly used by the U.S. army in Iraq, are those who had formerly acquired status as asylum seekers or refugees during a previous stay in Germany. A Ministry spokesman said in Berlin on Friday, “Their right to enter Germany is being examined as part of our regular visa processing”.
To make their recognition as a refugee or asylum status more effective, an additional requirement is that their identity is clarified. This would also apparently reduce any security concerns over their entry. The People’s Mojahedin Organization is a militant Iranian opposition movement.
