NCRI - The failure of the United Nations to protect Iranian dissidents in Camp Liberty has been sharply criticized in an open letter by 45 Iraqi MPs.

The lawmakers published a letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on the Sout-al-Iraq (Sound of Iraq) website on April 26.

They accused the Iraqi prime minister of turning Camp Liberty into a prison and barring the sick injured from receiving medical treatment.

Their statement read: "In unison with thousands of our colleagues around the world and based on our conscientious, humanitarian and ethical commitment against any violation of human rights and refugee rights, and in order not to harm Iraq’s international reputation, we call for your urgent intervention to improve conditions in the camp.

"While the security situation across Iraq is on the verge of collapse, these refugees who are members of the main Iranian opposition, more than ever are at risk of revenge and bloody attacks, masterminded and lead by the Iranian regime's terrorist Quds Force."

They noted that four refugees were killed and dozens more were injured in the missile attack on the camp on December 26, 2013.

The lawmakers also called for an independent international committee to investigate the massacre of 52 dissidents at Camp Ashraf on September 1, 2013.
