NCRI - Struan Stevenson, President of the European Iraqi Freedom Association (EIFA) and the former chairman of the European Parliament’s Delegation for Relations with Iraq told an inter-parliamentary meeting at the European Parliament in Brussels that former Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Maliki ought to be arrested for crimes against humanity against the Iraqi people and against members of the main Iranian opposition group People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK) in Camp Ashraf and Camp Liberty.
Below is the text of a video message by Mr. Tunne Kelam, member of the European Parliament from Estonia and a long-time member of the Friends of a Free Iran (FOFI) intergroup at the European Parliament on the recent joint statement by 170 MEPs calling for action to protect members of Iranian opposition the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK) in Camp Liberty in Iraq:
In a statement signed by 170 Members of the European Parliament representing all political groups in the Parliament, lawmakers condemned the brutal attack of 29 October 2015 on defenceless Iranian dissidents in Camp Liberty in Iraq and called for international protection for these refugees.
This camp is home to over 2000 members of the Iranian opposition PMOI [MEK] which advocates for a free and secular Iran, equality between men and women and abolition of death penalty.
In a joint letter to United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), a group of 21 members of Iraq’s Council of Representative condemned the increasing facilitation for groups of Iranian regime Ministry of Intelligence agents under the bogus pretext of “Liberty residents’ relatives” going to the camp, and harassing and psychologically torturing the members of the main Iranian opposition movement, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).
