BRUSSELS (Press TV) – The European Union (EU) has sent a letter to the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO) terrorist group in which it enumerated the reasons it has placed the MKO on its terrorist blacklist. Similar letters will be sent to those people or organizations which have been enlisted as terrorist groups, sources in the EU, speaking on condition of anonymity, told an IRNA correspondent in Brussels. The letter follows the decision by the European Court of Justice last December to remove the group from the terrorist blacklist, alleging that there was no transparency in the way the list was composed. But the EU Council declared on 30 January that it will keep the group on the blacklist. EU imposes anti-terrorist restrictions on those organizations or groups which are in the blacklist, including freezing the assets or blocking the financial and economic funding, with the list being updated on a yearly basis. France and Britain which had previously blacklisted MKO, have not reacted to the efforts to unblock the group's assets, EU's official website EU Observer reported. United States declared that the MKO as a terrorist group in 1997.
