Abdul-Hussein Abtan stressed that the people of Najaf and Karbala and other southern provinces were victims because of the crimes committed by the MEK.
A member of the House of Representatives for the province of Najaf, Abdul-Hussein Abtan, denied there is any sympathy for the terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalq group in Najaf province. He stressed that the people of Najaf and Karbala and other southern provinces were victims because of the crimes committed by the MEK.
In a statement to Ashraf News Abtan denied media reports claiming sympathy for the PMOI by the people of Najaf. He pointed out that these reports are baseless.
The leader of the parliamentary Al Mavaten bloc said that some of the Iraqi media, which have ties to the terrorist group, want to create a better image for the terrorist group. He stressed that the Iraqi government is determined to expel this terrorist group according to the agreement with the United Nations.
The independent press agency quoted Alnajfieh Abdul Hamza as saying that "the deal is with the individual members of the MKO not the group whether in Camp Liberty or Camp Ashraf.
He added that inhuman treatment suffered by the members of this organization raises doubts among the people of Najaf province with these procedures, which confirm the existence of illegal activities in this respect.
