UN should take action regarding Iranian dissidents in Iraq, MEP says

NCRI – Jim Higgins, member of the European Parliament stresses on the urgent need to end the ‘barbaric situation’ the Iranian dissidents are facing in Iraq.

Mr Higgins said: ” September 1 should have been a defining moment in world reaction to what happened in Camp Ashraf. 52 people handcuffed and shot in the head some of them women.” ” We also have a situation where people have been taken hostages.”

Mr. Higgins described the hunger strike by Iranians in Camp Liberty, Geneva, London, Melbourne, Berlin and Ottawa as a strong weapon that should draw the international attention to the fate of Iranian dissident in Iraq to end this ‘barbaric situation.’

Iranian dissidents at the camp have been refusing food since the hostages were seized during Camp Ashraf massacre which left 52 members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) dead on September 1.

The hunger strikers are also demanding the deployment of UN Blue Helmet forces to protect Camp Liberty from further attacks, and the return of 17,500 T-walls, protective vests and helmets.
