This conference will introduce the most recent member of the Mojahedin to have escaped Camp Ashraf in Iraq. He was in Camp Ashraf until only a few months ago.

The Human Rights Watch report 'No Exit' exposed human abuses which the Mojahedin perpetrated against its own members up to the year 2002, including torture and incarceration in Saddam Hussein's notorious Abu Ghraib political prison. The Association for the Support of Victims of the Mojahedin-e Khalq will hold a press conference to introduce fresh evidence of ongoing human rights abuses inside the Iranian Mojahedin-e Khalq organisation (aka National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI)) since that time. This conference will introduce the most recent member of the Mojahedin to have escaped Camp Ashraf in Iraq. He was in Camp Ashraf until only a few months ago. With documents and other evidence to support his claim, he alleges that he suffered various forms of torture and mistreatment up to the time he escaped. Disarmed, the Mojahedin benefit from Protected Person status under the Fourth Geneva Convention. Camp Ashraf is guarded by US military police to protect its inhabitants from attack by Iraqis. The Mojahedin's terrorist military base has been left intact with its own command structure to govern the camp. According to this latest victim to have fled the Camp, it is the continuation of this secretive internal command structure, under the leadership of Massoud and Maryam Rajavi, that has allowed the Mojahedin to continue its human rights abuses unchecked. The press conference will be by invitation or press-card only.
