Mousawi said the leaders of MKO would be summoned to court by the mass media. "There are numerous documents and even witnesses against them." "The members of terrorist Mojahedin-e khalq killed more than 450 Iraqis," the paper added. About the number of MKO members to be tried by court, Mousawi said: "150 top MKO members, including Maryam and Massoud Rajavi, would be tried." On MKO leader's asylum status in different countries, Mousawi said: "If they have asylum status, we would ask the hosting countries to extradite them according to their laws. About Massoud Rajavi, I wouldn’t talk about his refugee status even if I knew that because this is an ongoing investigation."
