UK's Foreign Ministry is not aware of the presence of its citizens among MKO members in Iraq
UK's Foreign Ministry is not aware of the presence of its citizens among MKO members in Iraq. Reuters reported from London: A group of British parliamentarians said Thursday there were "scores" of British, European and U.S. citizens among Iranian rebels detained in Iraq that could face extradition to Iran. The Iraqi Governing Council last month ordered the expulsion of the members of the People's Mujahideen rebel group interned by U.S. forces in Iraq where they had been armed and trained by the government of former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. Lord Corbett of Castle Vale, chairman of the British Committee for Iran Freedom, which organized Thursday's news conference, put the figure of Britons, other Europeans and U.S. citizens among Mujahideen detainees in Iraq at "scores." A spokesman for the Iranian Embassy in London said repentant rebels would be allowed to return to their families but their leaders would face trial on terrorist charges. "A great number of them repent of their past. If they come to Iran, there would be no problem," spokesman Mohammad Eskandari told Reuters. "The others must face trial and be punished. You know, they have shed much innocent blood. They have killed at least 3,00 Iranians. They have killed even Americans in the past. They are a terrorist group." But Britain's Foreign Office said it was not aware of any UK citizens being detained in the camp north of Baghdad.
