According to a report published by the Habilian Association on Sunday, the MKO ringleader has been handed a subpoena demanding her to appear in court and explain her involvement in terrorist acts, clear violation of human rights, self-immolation attempts by three MKO supporters in Paris to protest Rajavi's arrest by the French counterterrorism force in 2003, as well as lawsuits filed against the MKO terrorist group.

 

The Habilian Association is an Iranian human rights NGO comprising of a group of families that have lost their loved ones in terrorist acts during the early years following Iran's 1979 Islamic Revolution.

 

Meanwhile, MKO defectors and the families of the Iranian victims of terrorism have staged a rally in front of the French Ministry of Justice building to voice their support for the ministry's latest decision. They were confronted by a number of MKO sympathizers. Security forces later intervened to disperse the crowd. The MKO fled to Iraq in 1986, where it enjoyed the support of Iraq's executed dictator Saddam Hussein, and set up camp near the Iranian border.

 

The group is also known to have cooperated with Saddam in suppressing the 1991 uprisings in southern Iraq and carrying out the massacre of Iraqi Kurds. The group has carried out numerous acts of violence against Iranian civilians and government officials.
