Australian Senator expresses concern over abduction of two PMOI members

Gavin MarshallNCRI, August 28 – In a letter to Iraqi Prime Minister Dr. Ibrahim Jaafari on August 25, Senator Gavin Marshall from Victoria, Australia, urged for his intervention to secure safe return of the two victims of terror. In part he wrote:

“I write this letter of solidarity to you to express my concern for the safety of two Iranian dissidents, Hossein Pouyan and Mohammad-Ali Zahedi who have been missing in Iraq since 4th August. 

“These two Iranian dissidents are protected persons under Geneva Conventions.  The organisation that these two men represent, MeK, has been granted protection under the fourth Geneva Convention since June 2004 and work co-operatively with the Multi-National Forces in Iraq.

“It is possible that these men have been abducted and are being held as hostages. I understand that the U.S. military is working to secure the men’s release. I write to express my support for the family, friends and comrades of these men and to urge that every effort be made to secure their safe return as a matter of urgency.”
