Hossein Pouyan & Mohammad Ali ZahediMs. Mojgan Parsai, Secretary General of the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI), made the following comments regarding the abduction of two PMOI members in Baghdad:

"Subsequent to the acknowledgment by Iraqi Foreign and Defense ministers that the PMOI enjoyed political refugee status in Iraq, and after losing hope in the expulsion of the PMOI from Iraq and the election of a Revolutionary Guards commander, terrorist and hostage taker,  Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as President, the clerical regime has again resorted to terrorism and kidnappings. It has found itself on the losing end legally, politically and internationally despite all the conspiracies it hatched against the PMOI."
