Mojahedin have repeatedly claimed that they are under worst tortures in Evin prison
An MP has asked Iran to extradite two borough-based Iranian refugees who have been in jail there for more than a year. Mr Griffiths' visit follows two by Baroness Nicholson, MEP for the south east. She said she had been told by the Iranian authorities that the pair were arrested on Syria's border with Iraq in possession of US$1million and documentation which was intended to help spread the network of a banned terror organisation, the People's Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI), which opposes the Iranian government. The group is listed as a terrorist organisation by the UK and the USA. Mr Griffiths said: "It is clear that they were arrested near the Iraq-Syria border. There is an issue about the money but it's pretty vague. They are members of the National Council of Resistance of Iran an umbrella organisation that counts the PMOI as one of its members, so they were not surprised that they are being kept in prison." Mr Griffiths added that the men appeared to be being treated well in prison. "I don't think they've been subjected to any physical torture," he said, while Mojahedin have repeatedly claimed that they are under worst tortures in Evin prison! Mr Griffiths has set up a committee to try to free Mr Khodabandeh and Mr Bassam. The Foreign Office says there is little it can do because they are not British citizens. It's notable that Mr. Griffiths is one of MKO supporters and he had taken part in ceremonies held by Mojahedin on June 17, but it seems that Khodabandeh and Bassam have defended their status and have not complained, otherwise they would have informed Griffiths.
