But the amazing point is the opposition of an Iranian group to one of the articles of this constitution and it’s really surprising that they’ve become this much upset. The constitution explains clearly that enemies of Iraq, those who have damaged Iraq and Iraqis, can’t get asylum from Iraq. Now they want to seek asylum and take advantage of the rights of Iraqis, of the taxes they pay, and of their social security!! This is the right of Iraqis to reject it
From Ali Ghashghavi’s interview with Farhad Javaheri Yar As you know and it’s been reflected in the Arab and international media, Iraqi draft constitution was signed. There were several obstacles, bombings, killings and many threats. Even a Sunni group, which was the most powerful group when Saddam Hussein was in power, expressed its opposition to the constitution very openly, didn’t take part in the elections, didn’t introduce any candidates and every one was waiting to see what happens. Finally, a large number of Iraqi lawyers wrote this draft. This is, I think, a modern constitution, which will benefit today’s society of Iraq. It should be now put into referendum and all Iraqis should vote in order to say whether they want it or not. But the amazing point is the opposition of an Iranian group to one of the articles of this constitution and it’s really surprising that they’ve become this much upset. The constitution explains clearly that enemies of Iraq, those who have damaged Iraq and Iraqis, can’t get asylum from Iraq. Now they want to seek asylum and take advantage of the rights of Iraqis, of the taxes they pay, and of their social security!! This is the right of Iraqis to reject it. The law says clearly that “those who are accused of taking part in terrorist operations and those who have damaged Iraq.” The MKO and its international lawyers (that, I believe, have been deceived) always said that the MKO was independent in Iraq and that it was never mixed in the government. So, there’s nothing to worry about. The MKO says that it has never performed terrorist operations and that they have the right to seek political asylum in Iraq. Of course, I have something to say about the term “political asylum” that Mojahedin is seeking in Iraq. There’s no doubt that they are looking for a different kind of “political asylum”. They have protested to the article of constitution, saying that it has endangered their members!! A Persian proverb says: “take the rod, glutton cat escapes”. The MKO claims of democracy, human rights, free elections. It claims that it has never been involved in the crimes of Saddam Hussein in Kirkuk, Suleimanieh, Mandali, and Khaniqin. So, why is it frightened? Let it be passed. Does the MKO rejects this fact that new Iraqi government doesn’t want to serve, support and fund former enemies in its soil? I don’t know the logic MKO exactly. MKO has hired lawyers to protest to this constitution. They’re thousands of kilometers from the realities, and then they come and interpret an article of Iraqi constitution. Yes, they can play with this article. But MKO’s role in killing Iraqi people can’t be denied. MKO was strongly involved Iraqi security services. It controlled Iraqi prisons. It was involved in following and killing the opponents of Saddam Hussein. There are undeniable evidences for this; for instance, Rajavi’s confessions beside Taher Haboosh- he admitted to the crimes and missions he performed for Iraqi and said that the interests of Saddam’s government and the interests of Mojahedin are interwoven. They received money and patrolled in the streets, identified opponents and assassinated them. There are documents and tapes published. I now remember that one of the missions that Haboosh gave to Rajavi was to eradicate one of the bases of Iraqi oppositions. It was called Badr’s 9th base in Mosian region. Haboosh said why they had not killed Iraq’s oppositions inside Iran. This was in Iran. We have several cases inside Iraq. Those who were involved in suppressing Iraqi opposition groups at that time are now here. Many of those who took part in “Morvarid” operation, in suppressing people’s uprising in the north and south, have written their memories which can be cited. We welcome this article of Iraqi constitution. We hope that it opens a way for us to pursue those who tortured us in Iraq. We hope we can take our complaints to the court of Saddam Hussein and participate as private plaintiffs.
