Jubilee Campaign, an international human rights organizationIn an urgent appeal to Iraqi Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, Jubilee Campaign, an international human rights organization, demanded their intervention to secure safety of two members of the PMOI who were abducted by agents of the Iranian regime in Baghdad on August 4. In his letter on behalf of the Jubilee Campaign, Wilfred Wong wrote:

“We are deeply concerned that two members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI), Messrs. Hossein Pouyan and Mohammad-Ali Zahedi, were abducted in Baghdad.

”Witnesses on the scene, local residents and shop owners in the area said the abductors were riding in two Iraqi police vehicles. According to the local police precinct, both cars belonged to the Ninth Badr Brigade and the Interior Ministry’s Special Forces. Reports indicated the two PMOI members were first taken to the Interior Ministry.
 
”These abductions constitute a blatant violation of several international conventions. I urge you and your government to ensure the safety of the two abducted PMOI members and ensure that they are immediately released.”
