Maryam Rajavi was transferred to the Judicial Palace of Paris yesterday at 3 pm, while she was surrounded by police officers, in order to be investigated for 6 hours by anti-terror Judge Jean-Louis Bruguiere. She was arrested on June 17th in an operation which was unique in past 30 years in France. More than 1300 police officers took part in this operation. They arrested Maryam Rajavi and 166 other members of MKO. This operation was done by the order to Jean-Louis Bruguiere. French Police spokesman said that the operation was the result of more than 2 years of surveys by security and intelligence services of France. After the fall of Saddam and the move of MKO members from Iraq to France these surveys and inspections became more serious. The arrests were followed by a number of self-immolations in some European cities. Two died due to the wounds of burning. Self-immolations made Nicolas Sarcozy, French Interior Minister, call Mojahedin a group which is like a sect and a group whose members lack mental normality. He said the group forces its members to set themselves ablaze. Maryam Rajavi was accompanied by Henry Leklerk, her lawyer. After 6 hours of investigation, Maryam avoided talking to reporters and just answered the questions of AP reporter. She said that the judge has asked her about the history of the organization and the method of political thinking in the organization. She added that what she called resistance of Iranian people doesn't have anything to hide and that the law supports her. Her lawyer stressed that this is the first session of investigation and there's no doubt that there will be more investigation sessions.
