MKO cult leader, Massoud Rajavi, has been reported as wanting to block the release of members from the Camp. It is believed that as the organisation crumbles and members desert the Camp, he and several of his cohorts, will be left exposed to arrest and eventual trial on charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity
Signs Point to Quick Resolution for Camp Ashraf Captives After a brief pause, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) oversaw the start of a fresh wave of voluntary repatriations from Massoud Rajavi's Mojahedin cult in Iraq this week back to Iran. Individuals in Ashraf Camp are protected persons under the Fourth Geneva Convention. The ICRC will eventually require from the American Forces which have been holding the captives for nearly two years, free and unfettered access to each individual in the Camp so that it can fulfil its remit in regard to processing them toward either voluntary repatriation or removal to third countries. On 28 January this year, in a meeting on the sidelines of the 35th World Economic Forum in Davos, the ICRC president, Jakob Kellenberger, outlined the organisation's activities in Iraq. He pointed out that a number of penitent former members of the terrorist Mojahedin Khalq Organisation (MKO) have already retuned to their families in Iran through the auspices of the ICRC and reported that they have all expressed satisfaction over the way the Iranian government has treated them. Mr Kellenberger said the ICRC will continue its efforts to repatriate further numbers of the former MKO members and expressed gratitude to Iran for its part. MKO cult leader, Massoud Rajavi, has been reported as wanting to block the release of members from the Camp. It is believed that as the organisation crumbles and members desert the Camp, he and several of his cohorts, will be left exposed to arrest and eventual trial on charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity. Once this latest group of 100 former MKO members had travelled to Iran this week, news of the repatriation was withheld from the organisation's members and websites. As the news emerged, the MKO issued a statement denying ICRC involvement and claiming that the 100 Iranians who travelled from its camp in Iraq had no association with the MKO. Inside the camp, conditions are said to be deteriorating. Security at the camp rests, at the behest of the Iraqi Government, on the shoulders of the American soldiers. It is their responsibility to ensure that the rights of individual captives are being respected. This refers, in the main, to the visits made by families of the captives, who have been frequently denied access to their relatives by MKO leaders. The US forces and the ICRC must make ensure that the MKO command structure does not exercise unwarranted control over the individuals under US protection, and that those families who wish to visit their relatives in the Camp are allowed to do so in free and unfettered conditions.
