Daily Telegraph is under prosecution for supporting MKO according to UK’s Terrorism’s Act 2000
London, Jan 22, IRNA -- A right-wing daily Saturday contravened Britain`s anti-terrorism laws by calling for support for the Mujahideen-e-Khalq terrorist organization (MKO) based in Iraq. "We should back the main resistance group -- the People`s Mujahidin," the Daily telegraph said in an editorial on orchestrating the overthrow of Iran`s elected government. The newspaper, often described as the voice of Zionism in Britain, also called for the European Union to end its `constructive engagement` and for the UK to give "financial and political assistance to dissidents inside the country." The MKO is a proscribed organization under the UK`s Terrorism Act of 2000 in which police have the powers to seize assets and arrest those who threaten violence for political, religious or ideological causes. Under the legislation, anyone openly promoting or expressing support for the outlawed terrorist groups face the prospect of being prosecuted. A handful of British MPs, who have continued to back the MKO, regularly hold meetings with their members within the confines of parliament, where they are immune from prosecution. In its editorial, the telegraph said that Iran was unlike Iraq, which was an arbitrary creation and had no chance of being a functioning democracy without military invention. "Iranians, by contrast, trace an unbroken history back to the Immortals who followed the Great King at Thermopylae. They have a fully evolved society, with an educated middle class," it said. Using MKO language, the editorial suggested that the West should "catalyze" a new revolution in Iran by using the terrorist groups. "Give them the tools, and they will finish the job," it said.
