The families of the Mojahedin Khalq’s members residing in Camp Ashraf in Iraq have recurrently, in separate letters, warned the international humanitarian bodies, especially the International Committee of the Red Cross, of the members’ serious condition. That is natural in a war-torn country to witness a shortcoming in people’s essential needs, but the worst happens to the residents of a camp suffering double imposed restrictions, first by the camp’s own controlling authorities and then by the coalition forces.
The restricted members have to suffer against their own will. At a time when they are in need of urgent action by the international institutions, the camp commanders, supported by the occupying forces, have prohibited any visit to the camp. At the same time, the heads of the organization running a comfortable life in European countries, organize rallies to weep crocodile tears over the members’ serious condition in Camp Ashraf.
In a recent protesting rally in Geneva reported by NCRI, “a delegation representing the protestors marched to the headquarters of the International Committee of the Red Cross to deliver a letter on behalf of hundreds of families of the PMOI members residing in Ashraf City”. Nothing is known about the contents of the letter but for sure it never demanded the Red Cross to visit Camp Ashraf. A regular visit of the Red Cross Committee from the camp to have a free interview with the members might put an end to all sufferings and anxieties.
