A court started its preliminary procedures in a case against two MKO agents who tired to kidnap Mr. Farhad Javaheiyar from the streets of Cologne in Germany last year.
The Judge interviewed one of the accused (the whereabouts of his accomplice is as yet unknown) and asked questions about his involvement. The MKO had brought some of its agents into the court to intimidate Mr. Javheriyar and on some occasions threatened him, which was of course added to the complaints. In Iraq, Mr. Javaheriyar had been handed over by Mr and Mrs Rajavi to Saddam's Intelligence agency and had been imprisoned in the notorious Abu Ghraib prison for refusing to cooperate with the anti-human expectations and orders of Massoud and Maryam Rajavi. It is believed that the kidnapping attempt by the MKO had been a futile attempt to silence Mr. Javaheriyar.
Since his arrival in Europe, Mr. Javaheriyar has written many articles and books about his experiences in both MKO and Iraqi prisons. The trial is expected to continue over the next few months.
