After it was announced by Irandidban that Massoud Rajavi has been detained in Camp Mercury in Iraq, parts of the supplementary reports indicate that Massoud Rajavi is in custody along with some leaders of other dangerous terrorist organizations. According to the reports, Camp Mercury (former MKO Base, Badi’zadegan) is a place for keeping PUCs (Persons Under Control). These PUCs are the ones considered to have valuable intelligence for coalition forces. Persons Under Control would be kept and severely investigated in Camp Mercury before being transferred to Abu Ghraib prison. PUCs include the leaders of all terrorist and insurgent groups. Reports indicate that investigators in this camp should use their own special techniques to force the detainees to confess and give intelligence. According to Human Rights Watch report, during the investigations in this camp, human rights have been severely violated. These events have taken place in 2003 and 2004, before and after investigations on Abu Ghraib prison events. In some cases, ranking soldiers have claimed that intelligence officers have asked them to beat the detainees everyday. Reports confirm that the name of MKO’s former base, Badi’zadegan, now occupied by US forces has been changed to “Camp Mercury” and that it has been divided to three sections: one for training Iraqi soldiers, another for the settlement of US soldiers and another section for detaining PUCs. The camp is being protected under high security levels.
