The Iranian families of the Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) members, who are kept in Camp Ashraf, say they are not allowed to see their relatives, Press TV reports.

The families of the MKO members complained that they have come thousands of kilometers in the hope of seeing their relatives, but the organization does not permit them to meet their family members.

The Ashraf Camp, about 120 kilometers (74.5 miles) west of the Iranian border, houses more than 3,000 MKO members.

In 1986, the group fled to Iraq where it enjoyed the support of Iraq's executed dictator Saddam Hussein and set up the Ashraf Camp near the Iranian border.

According to the reports prepared by NGOs and the defected MKO members, the MKO members inside the camp are living in dire conditions and are deprived of their basic rights.

"I don't know why the MKO is keeping the people against their will. They are isolating them from the world," said an Iranian woman who came to see her relative in Camp Ashraf.
