Steven Schneebaum, MKO’s attorney in the US sent a letter to Iraqi president and Prime Minister, asking them to review and change this article of the constitution. In order to win their mercy, he wrote: “Your Excellency is aware that the people of Dialah, where the Camp Ashraf is located, have remained unharmed by MKO members”.
Terrorist group of Mojahedin-e khalq has been horrified by the confirmation of Iraqi constitutions, according to which granting asylum status to those charged with terrorist activities is banned. The 3rd clause of Article 21 (of Iraq’s draft constitution) says: giving political asylum to the people charged with terrorism is banned. This has frightened the leaders of MKO so that they have mobilized all their forces in the West to change this article. The content of this article is as follows: 1. Delivering an Iraqi citizen to foreign officials and parties is not allowed. 2. The right of getting political asylum in Iraq is determined in “law” and extraditing political refugee to foreign officials, or returning him by force to the country he’s escaped from, is not allowed. 3. It’s banned to granting political asylum to those accused of international crimes or terrorist activities, or those who have damaged Iraq. Steven Schneebaum, MKO’s attorney in the US sent a letter to Iraqi president and Prime Minister, asking them to review and change this article of the constitution. In order to win their mercy, he wrote: “Your Excellency is aware that the people of Dialah, where the Camp Ashraf is located, have remained unharmed by MKO members”. This terrorist group’s another attorney in Geneva- who defends the interests of Ashraf citizens- wrote similar letter, mentioning reasons why his clients are not dangerous: “people living in Ashraf Camp have quit all kinds of violent activities. There’s been no sign of violence since the arrival of US forces.” Since Western countries, including the US, have categorized MKO as a terrorist organization, by the confirmation of Iraqi constitution this organization can no more have bases or forces in Iraq as political refugees.
