Open Letter of 60 MEK ex-members to the Members of the EP

President European Parliament,

Ladies and Gentlemen, Members of the European Parliament,

In this situation of chaos and instability in Iraq, in a situation where ISIS is committing horrifying crimes on daily basis, the lives of 2700 of our friends who have effectively been taken hostage by the leaders of the Mojahedin Khalq (MKO, MEK, PMOI) in transit camp Liberty in Iraq (near Baghdad airport) are in serious danger.

The leaders of the MEK do not cooperate in any shape or form with the UNCHR and/or other UN bodies in charge of the transfer and resettling these Iranians from camp Liberty to other counties.

The announcement of solidarity by a number of MEPs with the residents of camp Liberty and asking for assurance regarding their security and safety will have no effect in helping these individuals. On the contrary it only encourages the leaders of the Mojahedin Khalq more to try to keep them in Iraq and evade any cooperation with the UNHCR.

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

No one is safe and no one has security in the current situation of war torn Iraq and as you are aware hundreds of people in Iraq get killed and/or injured on daily basis through bombings and similar atrocities in various parts of the country. Even the employees of the UN who were stationed near camp Liberty to carry out interviews and meetings with the individual members of the MEK have left their place due to the dangerous situation of the area – close to the airport – and the threat of ISIS.

The leaders of the MEK emphasise only the need for protection and security for these Iranians in the camp and never promote or even mention the need to transfer them out of Iraq. Above that, the leadership of the MEK by demanding the transfer of the whole organisation (and not individuals) has put in place demands which in practice make it impossible to transfer people according to the laws and regulations of the UNCHR.

American Republican* Senator John McCain on October 22 this year sent a letter to US Secretary of State John Kerry saying: “Many fear that the people at Camp Liberty could be at grave risk if the security situation in Iraq and especially in Baghdad continues to deteriorate.” He asks Secretary Kerry “Administration must move more quickly to find safe, permanent, and secure locations for Camp Liberty residents outside Iraq.”

Dear MEPs,

We, some of the ex-members of the Mojahedin Khalq Organisation ask you and especially the ones who are members of the “Friends of a Free Iran” committee in the European Parliament to investigate the aims of the leadership of the Mojahedin Khalq in this publicity stunt and investigate the true desire of this organisation for keeping these people in this situation in Iraq and ask them why? We urge you to ask the leaders of the MEK and we urge you to ask your governments in the name of humanity and human rights to cooperate to take these people out of Iraq before it is too late and before a catastrophe has taken place during these dangerous days of war and instability in Iraq. Nearly a third of these people have already been refugees in European and North American countries who have been taken by the leadership of MEK to Iraq over 25 years ago with deception, manipulation and brainwashing.

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

Please take Senator McCain’s warning seriously as he warns us that the lives of 2700 refugees in Iraq are in danger. Ask your governments to listen to the repeated advice and requests of the United Nations and UNHCR and UNAMI to accept these people in your countries. This acceptance would certainly force the leaders of Mojahedin Khalq to stop the deception and hindering and continuing to keep these people in Iraq using every possible means and all its resources.

Thanking you in advance for all your efforts in this respect and with the hope that this humanitarian action will save people before it is too late.
