Lord Triesman said that MKO claims to be a democratic party fighting for a better Iran are hard to square with its history of violence and authoritarian acts
November 1, 2005 A call for Britain to support the Iranian resistance movement following the President's declaration that Israel should be "wiped off the map" was rejected by the British Government Tuesday. Although condemning President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's remarks, British Foreign Office Minister Lord Triesman said the "MEK" resistance group was banned in the UK as a terrorist organisation. Lord Triesman made his remarks during a brief debate in the House of Lords. He was replying to senior Labour backbencher Lord Corbett, chairman of the "British Committee for Iran Freedom", who said “The best response to this incitement to terrorism, is to treat the Iranian resistance as a friend”. Lord Triesman said he understood why Lord Corbett had made the request, "but I regret to tell you that we have no plans to make that review." He added "The MEK is proscribed in the United Kingdom under the 2000 Terrorism Act." "It has a long history of involvement in terrorism in Iran and elsewhere and is by its own admission responsible for violent attacks that have resulted in many deaths." "It is listed in the United States as a foreign terrorist organisation and is on the EU's asset-freeze list. Its claims to be a democratic party fighting for a better Iran are hard to square with its history of violence and authoritarian acts," Lord Triesman added.
