US security officials, calling MKO a threat for national security, denied the release of four supporters of this group
LOS ANGELES Federal officials in Los Angeles have denied the release of four Iranian brothers jailed for three years for supporting an alleged terrorist organization.
The Mirmehdi brothers were arrested in October 2001 following an F-B-I investigation into an L-A-based cell of the Moujahedeen Khalq, or M-E-K, which opposes Iran's regime.
The U-S Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in October ruled that the federal Homeland Security Department had sole authority over two of the brothers, and sent the case for the other two back to U-S District Court.
Homeland Security officials yesterday denied their release, saying they were a threat to national security.
An attorney for the brothers called the decision "absolutely outrageous."
