iran-interlink’s important petition to help free MKO members in Iraq by ICRC. Please add your name.
Background information The return of 28 ex MKO members to Iran in December 2004 marks the first official removal of people from the MKO camp in Iraq. Previously there had been some daring escapes by small numbers of members held captive by the MKO and US forces, but this latest movement was the result of official processing begun by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). Getting the work of the ICRC started in the MKO camp in Iraq - as the body responsible for processing individuals under the Fourth Geneva Convention - is the achievement of many months of pressure from both inside Iran and outside. Nejat Association has been carrying out intense efforts inside Iran. Outside Iran more than 50 Iranian personalities and over 150 international personalities have been repeatedly in contact with the ICRC to ask for intervention in the situation. Many others have worked hard gathering signatures on petitions, meeting with the Red Cross, European Parliament and US embassies across Europe. This pressure has proved very effective in breaking the deadlock. However, now that official processing of individuals in the MKO camp has begun, it is vital that this work continues and the momentum is not lost. (We must stress here that the individuals in the MKO camp are NOT being automatically repatriated to Iran and that they will be dealt with on an individual basis which will allow to choose to take refuge in other countries.) While acknowledging the valuable work which the ICRC has performed over the past few weeks in interviewing some of the captured MKO members in Ashraf camp and helping some to safety, it is our considered opinion that this work should continue without cessation so that all the captured individuals are given full opportunity to choose with all available knowledge the various options available to them.
