A number of the families of the victims of the March 1991 massacre are to file a lawsuit against the MKO, reported Habilian -- an association that groups the families of those killed in terror operations across Iran -- on its website.
The families seek the prosecution of the perpetrators of the massacre and want the leaders of the organization to be brought to justice, the report added.
They reiterated that the MKO had a hand in the 1991 crackdown of Iraqis. They said that they have evidence at hand proving the MKO's crimes, adding that they would present the evidence to the Iraqi Judiciary.
The MKO is listed as a terrorist organization by much of the international community and is responsible for numerous acts of terror and violence against Iranian civilians and government officials.
The group fled to Iraq in 1986, where it enjoyed the support of Iraq's executed dictator Saddam Hussein and set up Camp Ashraf near the Iranian border.
The organization is also known to have cooperated with Saddam in suppressing the 1991 uprisings in southern Iraq and the massacre of Iraqi Kurds.
According to Iraqi President Jalal Talabani, 5000 members of the MKO joined forces of Saddam in the battle for Kirkuk to help the suppression of Iraqi Kurds.
Several defectors from the group have also verified that the group played a significant role in repressing the Iraqi Kurds.
Batoul Soltani, a former member of the MKO leadership council, told a press conference in 2009 that the MKO played a prominent role in repressing the Iraqis in the southern Iraqi cities in 1991, adding that Saddam's regime did not rely on its soldiers more than relying on the MKO militants in this particularly respect.
