Iranian dissidents in Camp Liberty have staged a protest at psychological torture by Iraqi guards who are broadcasting sound into the camp through giant loudspeakers.
One camp resident told the Al-Jazeera news channel on Wednesday: "We are protesting today the sound torture of Camp Liberty by Iraqi intelligence agents. For 45 days, agents of the Iranian regime that were stationed here during the previous Iraqi government have began torturing residents by broadcasting sound into the camp, closest to where the sick are housed."
The participants in the rally wrote a to the UN High Commissioner of Human Rights ZeidRa’ad al-Hussein calling for taking measures to support human rights and international humanitarian rights violated by Iraqi forces with ties to the Iranian regime.
“After receiving the Camp Ashraf security dossier from US forces, the Iraqi government under Maliki’s watch staged six bloody attacks and massacres in Ashraf and Liberty, and imposed an inhumane medical and logistical siege.”
Intesar Allawi, a leader of al-Wataniya Coalition (National Coalition) in Iraq, issued a press release on December 8, announcing the coalition’s opposition to the continuing medical siege against residents of Camp Liberty (near Baghdad Airport).
Iraq's NINA News Agency reported on December 8 that this leader of the al-Wataniya Coalition has called for “friendly treatment of Camp Liberty residents and humanitarian assistance to them in any way and any method possible, especially with respect to their patients, and the facilitation of their access to hospitals”.
The Iranian regime's meddling in Camp Liberty will set the stage for another deadly attack on its 3,000 residents, the British Parliamentary Committee for Iran Freedom has warned.
The alert comes after remarks by Iraq's minister of Human Rights, Mahdi al-Bayati, who said the UN-protected Iranian dissidents in the camp were not refugees and their presence in the camp was 'illegal'.
International Committee In Search of Justice has issued the following press release:
(ISJ) - Iraqi “Human Rights Minister” Mohammad Mahdi al-Bayati said on 24 November 2014 in a meeting with Mrs. Jane Holl-Lute, Special Advisor to the UN Secretary-General on Resettlement of Liberty Residents, “The PMOI lack refugee status and their stay in Iraq is illegal because they supported the former dictatorial regime in the most hideous crimes against the Iraqi people.”
The World Medical Association has expressed its extreme concern about "worrying health conditions" of the Iranian dissidents in Camp Liberty, Iraq, and has called on Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to take immediate action to ensure the camp’s residents full access to adequate health care facilities.
