Iranian regime’s Minister of Intelligence in Baghdad ordered Faleh Fayyad to obstruct the sale of Camp Liberty residents’ property
According to reports received from Iran, the regime’s Minister of Intelligence Mahmoud Alavi reported to Hassan Rouhani and Ali Khamenei’s Office in Tehran on his trip to Iraq, stressing that he has instructed Iraqi National Security Advisor Faleh Fayyad that the Iranian regime is opposed to the sale of the property of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) in Camp Liberty and will not allow it.
According to this report, it has been decided that Faleh Fayyad would put on a bogus show for the United Nations, by allowing limited and inconsequential sale of some of the residents’ property in a manner that would not generate any income for the PMOI.
According to this report, Mullah Alavi has demanded more pressure and suppressive measures against the PMOI. Faleh Fayyaz has responded that up until now they have imposed the maximum pressure and control possible on PMOI members in Camp Liberty and that they will continue to do so.
As noted in previous NCRI statements, although the Iraqi government has agreed since three months ago with the sale of the Camp Liberty residents’ property, the Iraqi agents prevent businessmen from entering the camp and obstruct the sale of the property that is necessary for bankrolling the resettlement of PMOI members outside of Iraq and thereby disrupt the relocation process. These measures are but a repeat of the scenario implemented by the Iranian regime and its agents in Camp Ashraf to pave the way for systematic looting and plundering of residents’ property.
Ever since 2011 when discussions on the transfer of residents to Camp Liberty started, the Iranian regime has done its utmost through its cohorts in Iraq to obstruct the sale of residents’ property. In a statement on April 5, 2013 the Iranian Resistance announced that in his trip to Iraq, the regime’s then-Minister of Intelligence had obligated Nuri Maliki to loot and to expropriate PMOI property.
The Iranian Resistance reminds the international community of its commitment to the safety and security of Camp Liberty residents and thereby calls on the U.S. government, the European Union, and the United Nations to take urgent action to remove all prohibitions on the sale of residents’ property.
