According to the announcement of Mojahedin-e Khalq organization, Mr. Ibrahim Khodabandeh and Jamil Bassam, of NCRI's
According to the announcement of Mojahedin-e Khalq organization, Mr. Ibrahim Khodabandeh and Jamil Bassam, of NCRI's council, were arrested on April 18th by the security forces of Syria and were extradited to Iranian officials on June 18th. The legal basis of this event is clear and doesn't need much explanation because as Ms. Elizabeth Conway Symons, Deputy of UK FM, has replied Sydney Chapman, NCRI has confirmed that Mr. Khodabandeh and Bassam were members of foreign committee of MKO. As you know, NCRI is the political wing of terrorist organization of Mojahedin-e Khalq and this has been announced in the U.S. and UK. Therefore, no only Syria but also other countries, which are familiar with terrorist acts of this group, know that they should move against them and if they have mutual contracts with Iran they should extradite criminals as Syria did; otherwise they should be faithful to international conventions in this case. Accepted conventions indicate that detained terrorists in other countries should be extradited to their homelands and if they are being followed by international institutions, their case should be preceded according to international laws… But Mojahedin, by getting help from Win Griffith of House of Commons, try to force UK government to act outside the framework of international conventions. Although the Foreign Ministry of the UK has announced that these two people belonged to a terrorist group and that they were not UK citizens, it has used "human rights" to pressure statesmen and parliamentarians when asked about using MKO." Looking at this case from human rights point of view is meaningless and even Griffith, who's beside Mojahedin and has established "Emergency Committee for Freeing Bassam and Khodabandeh" has announced that only 10 people from 3 countries of UK, Australia and Norway have agreed to join this committee; which shows that this case is not defendable in the field of human Rights. But the fact is that Mojahedin use human rights to cover their terrorist moves and they play with the public opinion. Now the question is that "will Bassam and Khodabandeh be supportd by MKO and their British friends, even if they take a position against MKO and separate their ways??"
