THREE men detained during a massive sweep against Iranian dissidents in France have been ordered to leave the country within three months, their lawyers
From correspondents in Auvers-Sur-Oise, France Sunday Telegraph:THREE men detained during a massive sweep against Iranian dissidents in France have been ordered to leave the country within three months, their lawyers said today. A spokesman for the Iranian opposition group, the People's Mujahideen, voiced outrage at what it called "the illegal and unwarranted decision to send into exile and expel three Iranian political refugees who have been living in France for well over 20 years". The three have also been ordered to quit their present addresses and take up temporary residence in other French locations pending their expulsion, they said. They are Colonel Behzad Mo'ezi, 67, described as Iran's longest-serving air force pilot, Majid Shahbazian, a lawyer, and Vali Emam-Gholi, a poet, writer and a journalist. The French interior ministry, when contacted by AFP, denied it had ordered Mo'ezi's expulsion, but would not comment on the other two cases. The three, who say they have been served with expulsion orders, were released the Saturday following the crackdown. A statement by the three protested the order to leave the country, saying they had received the expulsion orders without any reason being given. Following last week's raids, 11 Iranians - Rajavi among them - remain under judicial investigation for alleged links to a terrorist organisation and funding terrorist activity.
