 Congressman Filner Condemns Attack on Camp Ashraf, Calls on UN to Take Over Security


 
Washington, DC – Congressman Bob Filner condemned attacks on Iranian exiles in Camp Ashraf, Iraq today and called on United Nations to take over security.  Congressman Filner also called for the removal of 180 loud speakers and an end to the psychological torture of camp residents.

“We must in the strongest words condemn this attack on the residents of Ashraf,” said Congressman Filner.  “I call upon the United Nations, President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton to end the siege of Camp Ashraf by transferring security of the camp to the United Nations.  The U.S. and international community have an obligation to ensure the protection of human rights and access to life-saving medical treatments to residents in need of care.  We must take action now!”

Today’s attack on Camp Ashraf comes in the wake of a Spanish Court launching a probe into the July 2009 attacks on Camp Ashraf which left 11 people dead.
