Reports received from the families of former MKO members, living in US-run camp (known as TIF), indicate that there have been new changes in their status.
Reports received from the families of former MKO members, living in US-run camp (known as TIF), indicate that those not willing to return to Iran and asking for going to a third country have been offered by the Iraqi government to get a six-month laissez-passer and visa for turkey; they could leave Iraqi by air or ground and personally pursue their own refugee issues.
Iraqi government has also guaranteed their security from TIF to the border with Turkey.
It's been said that Iraqi government, determined to expel the MKO but also willing to solve the problem of defectors, has not been able to find a third country for MKO members; therefore, it has proposed this, which is not obligatory.
On the other hand, reports indicate that in their interview with representatives of UNHCR, MKO defectors have expressed satisfaction of situation in TIF.
The people in TIF can be contacted by this phone number:
