A member of the National Reform Trend, an Iraqi political faction headed by the former Iraq's prime minister, says the terrorist Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO, a.k.a. MEK and PMOI) has been debilitated in Iraq since the US withdrawal from the country.

During a meeting with Seyed Mohammad Javad Hasheminejad Secretary-General of the Habilian Association, Manal Finjan explained that there are two factors, which have resulted in the weakening of the MKO.

 

"Terrorism charges that some pro-MKO politicians are facing and the unavailing efforts of the United States in the wake of its withdrawal [from Iraq] in supporting the group."

 

Referring to the Iraqi people and government's efforts in the eviction of MKO from Iraq, the Iraqi political analyst said, "the group's expulsion from Iraq has entered a new phase in 2003, and the people staged many protests for the MKO members' removal [from Iraq]."

 

She further explained the main reason that made the Iraqi government subjugate Camp Ashraf, saying that the group had been trying to "defeat the new political process in Iraq."

 

"The group has perpetrated many crimes against [Iraqi] people," she said, emphasizing that the terror victims' families in Iraq have filed lawsuits against the terrorist MKO group.

 

The member of the Iraqi National Alliance went on to accuse the MKO of abduction, and said, "The group was behaving like criminal gangs in the region by kidnapping people and sending them to Camp Ashraf."

 

She added that the MKO case in Iraq could have ended soon if some Iraqi politicians did not exert pressure on the government of Iraq.

 

Describing the MKO members' expulsion from Camp Ashraf as a "courageous measure" by the government, she reiterated, "During the recent years, Camp Ashraf has been considered as the MKO's home and their symbol of power."

 

Dr. Finjan concluded that since the MKO members had access to their spies around the Camp Ashraf, the government of Iraq decided to cleave all their external links by relocating them to a place where they are not able to be in touch with anybody.
