In a sentence, political effect of "No Exit" is that there's "No Exit" from terror list for the MKO. In fact, the message of HRW's "No Exit" is exactly "No Exit". No exit from where? No Exit from terror list.
Awa Club- Mohammed Hussein Sobhani speaks at a seminar on Human Rights Violations in the MKO: The subject of this seminar is "Human Rights Violations in the Organization of Mojahedin-e khalq. All friends here were former members and high ranking officials for MKO, each with tens of years of political activities and experiences (inside and outside the MKO). They have all experienced MKO's prison. Now, at the current situation we think that by presenting our bitter experiences we can help the new generation in Iran and prevent them from experiencing terrorism, violent armed struggles in order to shift the power. We want to present peaceful political solutions instead of all these methods. I have devoted my speech to the political effects of Human Rights Watch report. As you know, HRW released a report on May 18, which was called "No Exit". I want to express the meaning and message of "No Exit". MKO claims that HRW report is political; of course, this report has political effects but it's not political itself. This report has legal basis. It's been prepared according to documents and testimonies of the real witnesses, some of whom are now here. But this report has political effects, like all reports on Human Rights Violations (whether the violations have been committed by a state or an opposition group). For instance, political groups in Yugoslavia which are in opposition and have violated the rights; Al-Qaeda is not in power but violates human rights in itself, like Mojahedin-e khalq. So, such reports have political effects, so that when HRW publishes a report on Uzbekistan, that report had political effects as well. Here, I want to point to the political effects of HRW's report. In a sentence, political effect of "No Exit" is that there's "No Exit" from terror list for the MKO. In fact, the message of HRW's "No Exit" is exactly "No Exit". No exit from where? No Exit from terror list. As you know, after the fall of Saddam Hussein, Mojahedin has focused its efforts on being lifted from the list because it has lost the weapons it received from Saddam- although it is still receiving illegal money- and it has lost the environment for operating militarily. So, it has moved toward political movements in order to be lifted from the list. But the message of HRW was that there's no exit for MKO from banned list. The organization has severely tried – by resorting to deception, giving illegal gifts to people and lobby in European countries- to become de-categorized, but the report was a dam in front of all these illegal efforts. We expect the current situation to be continued and the MKO to remain on the list. We tell HRW officials and the authorities of other international human rights organizations that this report should not be ignored. It should become a process and a legal case in international courts, including Hague. We have started our efforts and we will continue in the following months. We would inform you of our efforts and results in the next future. I than you friends and guests here.
