Iraqi Minister of Justice Hassan al-Shammari says the Islamic Republic of Iran can demand the extradition MKO members.

 

On Sunday, Shammari stated that under an agreement signed between Iran and Iraq on the swap of prisoners and criminals, Tehran can ask Baghdad to extradite MKO members.

 

He further noted that Iraq will hand the terrorists over to Iran should the Islamic Republic ask for their extradition.

 

On February 19, Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari called on the United Nations (UN) to speed up efforts to relocate MKO members.

 

Zebari further noted that the Baghdad government has recently made a financial contribution of half a million dollars to a trust fund proposed by the UN chief to cover the costs related to the MKO relocation.

 

In a press release on December 27, 2013, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said that the agency and the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) had relocated 311 out of 3,200 residents of the Camp Hurriya (Liberty) to third countries.
