The conference will establish that each and every military and terrorist operation carried out by the Mojahedin in Iran was ordered directly by Saddam Hussein and his intelligence and secret services in Iraq
Press conference: 10am, Thursday November 10 Westminster, London The trial of Saddam Hussein has begun. His toppled regime actively supported international terrorism and Iran’s Mojahedin-e Khalq (MEK) group - led by Saddam’s closest ally, Massoud Rajavi - was at the top of the terrorist list. In a press conference taking place at 10am on Thursday November 10 - at Room 115, Fielden House (behind College Green), Westminster - pressure group Iran Interlink (http://www.iran-interlink.org) will demand that Massoud Rajavi joins Saddam in being brought to justice. Using film and video evidence, the press conference will set out to show how the Mojahedin, acting as part of Saddam's private army, played a decisive role in the suppression of the 1991 internal uprisings in Iraq, and is responsible for the massacre of many Iraqi Shiites and Kurds who opposed Saddam, with a focus on the best documented case: the massacre of the Kurds in their March 1991 uprising. Speakers will establish why they believe that the MEK will return to the side of Saddam Hussein, and that they are already participating in the insurgency in Iraq as well as planning terrorist activities in the west. Critically, the conference will establish that each and every military and terrorist operation carried out by the Mojahedin in Iran was ordered directly by Saddam Hussein and his intelligence and secret services in Iraq. Chaired by Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne, MEP, the November 10 conference programme includes: a documentary film which shows the Mojahedin's role in the suppression of the uprising of the Iraqi people in 1991; video evidence secretly filmed by Saddam's own security services depicting the financial, spying and terrorist relationship between the Mojahedin-e Khalq organisation and Saddam's regime; and up to date information on the current activities of Mojahedin and Saddam's followers in Iraq and the west. Baroness Nicholson will chair a panel of speakers comprising: Judith Neurink, Dutch journalist and author of the book 'Misled Martyrs', published during early November; Alain Chevalerais, French journalist and author of the book 'Burned Alive'; Anne Singleton, British former member of the MEK and author of the book 'Saddam's Private Army'. Former members will be available to answer questions on the MEK. Barroness Nicholson describes the Mojahedin as “Saddam's private, international terrorist army, working against us all”. She comments: “For the sake of our citizens' and for global safety, I urge that greater security attention is paid to the MKO. The organisation strikes silently and with lethal impact and the criminals who make up the MKO kill and destroy the innocent. They must be stopped.” Entry to the press conference is by invitation or press card only. -ends- Notes for Editors Iran Interlink is a pressure group / support organisation which provides a point of contact for families and friends of members of the Iranian Mojahedin-e Khalq.
