The People's Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI) is an Iranian opposition movement in exile and the key component of the National Council of Resistance of Iran. Regarded as a terrorist organization in the EU until 2009, and in the USA and Canada until 2012, it renounced violence in 2001. Whilst its leaders are based in Paris, some 3,500 are currently held in Camp Liberty, near Baghdad Airport, in appalling conditions.
