No country in the world is ready to shelter members of the anti-Iran terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO), an Iranian rights group announced on Tuesday.
"Monafeqin (the Hypocrites, MKO members as they are called in Iran) have announced that they will accept leaving Iraq, but no country accepts to shelter them because they have sought group asylum which is outside the boundaries of the laws of all countries and international bodies," Secretary-General of Iran's Habilian Association - a human rights group formed by the families of 17,000 terror victims in Iran - Seyed Mohammad Javad Hasheminejad told FNA.
He said that Camp Liberty - where MKO members have been transiently sheltering after they were expelled from their main training center, Camp Ashraf, in Northern Iraq - operates under international standards for asylum-seekers and those who reside in this camp mean that they are seeking asylum.
So they should end their membership in the group because international laws require members of terrorist groups to defect as a precondition for asylum-seeking, he added.
To date, almost 1200 MKO terrorists have been transferred from Camp Ashraf to Camp Liberty which lies Northeast of the Baghdad International Airport, in three groups of 400 each, on February 18, 8, and March 20. About 2,000 members still remain in Camp Ashraf.
