Arabic Al-Wasat Newspaper publishes an article and emphasizes on the trial of terrorist Mojahedin-e khalq members in the near future ...
Washington: a US official reported of the possibility of trying 40 members of Mojahedin-e khalq in the US.
Ashraf camp, located in north of Baghdad, hosts 3800 MKO members. These members are concerned about their future.
This newspaper quotes this US official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, as saying: "it seems that the trial court for these members would be held in Iraq. Some of its members will be tried for committing anti-humanity crimes and assisting Saddam Hussein in suppressing the Kurds and Shiites in 1991."
He also added that 4-6 of them will be taken to the US to be tried there for the terrorist actions they have done.
Meanwhile, some conservatives in the US, as well as the officials of State department, argue that arresting the members of this group and disarming them in Iraq is not enough and that the US should look at them as bargaining chips. They believe the US should return them to Iranian officials according to a deal with this country.
