In a report published yesterday, the UNHCR detailed the exact number of relocated members of MeK from Iraq to Albania during three years (2013-2015).

According to the report, Albania accepted only refugees in 2013, 2014 and 2015, all which were members of MeK in Camp Liberty.
The reports indicate that the MeK members' relocation outside of Iraq is going to be finished after four years in 2016 after Albania announced it aims to take in more 1900 Camp Liberty residents by the end of 2016.
In accordance with the December 25, 2011 Memorandum of Understanding between UNAMI and the Government of Iraq, the MeK members were relocated from Camp Ashraf, their long time military camp, to Camp Liberty in order for the UNHCR to resettle them in third countries.
The then US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton repeatedly said that the MeK's terrorist designation hinged partly on the group's remaining members leaving Camp Ashraf and moving to Camp Liberty. Following the evacuation of Camp Ashraf, Clinton removed the group from US terror list in September 2012.
