Rajavi and 16 others were placed under judicial investigation -- the first step toward possible formal charges in France
the trial of Maryam Rajavi started yesterday in Paris.
The judge of the court is the anti-terror judge Jean Louis Bruguiere.
Rajavi and 16 others were placed under judicial investigation -- the first step toward possible formal charges in France -- last month for alleged links to a terrorist organization and for funding terrorist activity after French police launched a major crackdown on the People's Mujahedeen.
Tehran has requested the extradition of Mujahedeen members being held in France, but French officials say those who are legal residents will not be deported. Rajavi has political refugee status in France, valid until 2006.
French officials have accused the People's Mujahedeen -- classified as a terrorist organization by the United States, the European Union and Iran -- of planning attacks against Iranian interests in Europe.
