An official at the Judiciary Foreign Relations Department, Sabbah Zanganeh, said here Tuesday that the Judiciary is compiling a complaint to present to the Iraqi special tribunal asking that Saddam Hussein be tried for the crimes committed by the terrorist Mujahedin Khalgh Organization (MKO) against the Islamic Republic of Iran. Zanganeh told the Mehr News Agency that the Judiciary is pursuing the issue with the help of other institutes but would not further comment on the content of Iran’s indictment. The visiting leader of the Supreme Council for the Islamic Revolution in Iraq (SCIRI), Abdul Aziz Hakim, also told our reporter that Iraq’s Governing Council had previously decided to expel the terrorist group from Iraq by June. The council’s measure was viewed as a step toward ridding Iraq of terrorism but there are certain problems in the way. Iraq’s Prime Minister Iyad Allawi believes that members of the group have no right to do political or cultural activities in Iraq and they are forbidden to leave camp. Touching on this subject MP Ahmad Pishbin told MNA that the MKO is one of the world’s worst terrorist groups supported by Saddam’s former regime. Pishbin pointed out that this court is an opportunity for the investigation of the group’s crimes. The Iraqi court is focusing on crimes against humanity committed by Saddam so it should not be forgotten that during Saddam’s regime Iraq was a base for the MKO, Pishbin stressed. Majlis deputy from Neyshabur Hussein Sobhaninia also said that one of the Saddam’s biggest crimes was harboring MKO members and using them to massacre defenseless Iranian civilians. Sobhaninia believes this heinous crime must be a priority for the Judiciary among the charges in its indictment against the former dictator. Iran is not hopeful about being heard at the court being held in Iraq, therefore the judiciary is attempting to establish a legal court solely regarding Iranian issues, he explained.
