4 Iranian brothers jailed in the US for having relations with terrorist MKO organization will be deported to a third-country.
Four Iranian brothers, linked to the terrorist MKO, who have been in Jail in the US for more than three years will probably be released and be deported to a third-country. Mohsen, Mojtaba, Mohammed and Mostafa Mir Mehdi had been once detained earlier for lying in their asylum applications but they were released on bail in 1999. Once again, they were arrested in October 2001 for violating immigration laws and having links to the terrorist organization of Mojahedin-e khalq. Mojahedin terrorist organization has been on US terror list since 1997. Adam Ereli, Deputy Spokesman of State Department, said in a press conference that “the status of Mojahedin-e khalq has not changed and is still considered a terrorist organization and we treat them as a foreign terrorist organization.” Los Angeles Times, in a detailed report on the status of these four Iranian brothers, wrote: “Federal government considers these people (who are opponents of Islamic Republic) as national threat and links them to terrorism and is going to deport them.” According to the Times, Homeland Security have ordered their deportation due to their links to a terrorist organization and according to two articles of nationalism law. According to this report, a Judge has given the government February 20th to release the brothers. The paper writes: “the stance of government toward these people is important since the group which brothers are linked to is Mojahedin-e khalq. MKO, despite being on terrorist list of US State Department, enjoys wide support from some people in the Congress.” Los Angeles Times says two judges had ruled that brothers are not entitled to receive political asylum since they had lied. “The only solution for the government is to find a third-country which will accept them. But immigration experts believe that thanks to their links with terrorists, no country will accept them.”
