NCRI - Shahin Gobadi, spokesperson for the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK), commented on Friday on the news that the final group of residents of Camp Liberty were successfully relocated on Friday from Iraq to Europe.

Camp Liberty previously housed members of the main Iranian opposition group People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK). 

Mr. Gobadi said: “The successful conclusion of the relocation process of the residents of Camp Liberty, members of the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK), out of Iraq was a major blow to the clerical regime and a major victory for the Iranian Resistance.” 

“One has to keep in mind that this happened despite all the conniving and conspiracy and obstructions by the clerical regime which sought to force the residents to either give up resistance and succumb or to be massacred.” 

“Exploiting the post 2003 situation in Iraq the clerical regime resorted to its utmost to make this a reality. It resorted to three massacres, five rocket attacks, two abductions, imposing a totally inhumane siege on the camp residents. There were only a part of the major scheme that the mullahs pursued in order to achieve their ominous objective. But they failed utterly. As such, this was a major victory for the Iranian Resistance.” 

“The fact that this coincides with the growing movement inside and outside of Iran seeking justice for the 30,000 members of the PMOI who were massacred back in 1988, this development heralds a new dawn for the Iranian Resistance and leads to the defeat of the Iranian regime,” he added.
