A campaign is being launched in Britain to indict the leader of the Mojahedin-e Khalq terrorist group (MKO), Massoud Rajavi, along with the former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, whose trial started in Baghdad last month. "For the sake of our citizens' and for global safety, I urge that greater security attention is paid to the MKO," says British member of the European Parliament, Baroness Nicholson, who is chairing the lunch of the campaign in the UK parliament on Thursday. The 64-year old British Liberal Democrat peer describes the MKO as "Saddam's private, international terrorist army," which has carried out numerous terrorist attacks in Iran and played a decisive role in the suppression of the 1991 internal uprisings in Iraq. "The organization strikes silently and with lethal impact and the criminals who make up the MKO kill and destroy the innocent. They must be stopped," she said in a statement obtained by IRNA. The conference, which is showing film and evidence of some of the terrorist group's crimes, is being organized by British-based Iran Interlink, which provides humanitarian support and family contacts for individual members who wish to leave the MKO. Interlink said that speakers at the launch will also establish why they believe that the MKO, which is based in Iraq, will return to the side of Saddam Hussein after showing its members were already participating in the insurgency. On Monday, Iraq's deputy prime minister Ahmad Chalabi suggested that the MKO should be expelled from his country after saying that the status of their protection by the US military was "murky circumstances." "We should enforce the article in our constitution that Iraq should not be a transit point or base for destabilizing neighbours," Chalabi said in an interview with London's Financial Times.
