What lies behind the lawyers’ campaign to keep the MKO in Iraq?
What lies behind the lawyers’ campaign to keep the MKO in Iraq? The MKO is still insisting it be allowed to remain in Iraq because members face torture and execution if they are extradited to Iran. Yet no responsible body is even discussing such a move. But if, as British MP Win Griffiths fears, the coalition forces “wash their hands of the matter” following handover, would the Iraq Governing Council be in a position to protect the men and women in Ashraf camp from revenge attacks by groups which the MKO helped Saddam Hussein to suppress? Although considered as terrorist entity by the United States and the European Union, the MKO claims that its legal status must yet be clarified. Clearly, when MKO members are removed to safety in third countries, they will certainly be removed as individuals, not en masse as an organisation. In spite of this, several who already have citizenship or residency rights in third countries, have been denied permission from the MKO to travel to safety. Since everyone is by now aware that MKO members, through indoctrination and intimidation, will obey only commands which emanate from Massoud Rajavi, these people, indeed all the people at Ashraf camp, must be regarded as his hostages. We should surely look at his interests in taking this line of action. If the MKO remains in or is removed from Ashraf camp as an entity, it would mean that Rajavi has found a buyer for his mercenary military force and he, along with his forces, will be protected and strengthened for re-use as a ‘friendly’ terrorist outfit. If, however, members are individually removed from Ashraf camp and the MKO infrastructure dismantled, then Rajavi will be left exposed as the leader of a terrorist outfit. As such he, and a small number of his henchmen, must be held accountable for crimes against humanity and war crimes committed in Iran, Iraq and elsewhere, for which there is ample evidence and witnesses. Since everyone is also now aware that Massoud Rajavi regards his forces as expendable in times of need - that is, whenever a bit of blood is called for to up the ante – then as his personal crisis looms ever closer, with no guarantee of a buyer to save Rajavi from prosecution, then these hostages must be regarded as being in extreme danger. MKO insiders have already spoken about mass suicide. We should not ignore this possibility. Read Iran-Interlink’s article ‘Rajavi’s July 1st Deadline is Fast Approaching’ in this issue.
