In a letter addressed to Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth
Affairs, Jack Straw MP, Iran-Interlink again drew attention to the crimes of
the Mojahedin-e Khalq, the armed Iranian opposition organisation which
played a direct role in killing and suppressing the Kurdish and Shiite
populations in Iraq by direct order of Saddam Hussein. The letter also
stated that the MKO continued to act as a mercenary force for the Iraqis in
gathering intelligence and showed themselves compliant with Saddam Husseinís
Iran-Interlink went on to stress that the MKO has systematically abused the
democratic systems of the West in order to gain political and financial
support here. These, of course, are among the reasons they remain on the
list of foreign terrorist entities of the
USA, UK and European Union.
Iran-Interlink has campaigned for the right of the ordinary Mojahedin forces
to contact their families and to choose whether or not they wish to remain
part of this organisation. As it is a cult, the members do not enjoy such
rights. Many have been imprisoned, tortured or even killed for dissenting
In view of the current situation of the MKO in Iraq Iran-Interlink requests
the coalition forces investigate the whereabouts of over fifty dissenting
Mojahedin members who were reported to be in Abu Ghraib political prison,
the names of whom have previously been published.
the Mojahedin bases themselves be thoroughly searched and evidence
documented about the existence of Mojahedin prisons there. This will expose
the notorious prisons and torture rooms, graveyards, tunnels, storage of
chemical masks and chemical antidote drugs issued by Saddam Hussein
following training etc, some of which can be found located adjacent to Mr
Massoud Rajaviís palace in Ashraf camp (known as the water purifying
project). If the coalition forces cannot find these places there are many
former prisoners who still bear the marks of torture by the Mojahedin who
are willing to identify these buildings on the ground.
the Mojahedin issue the names of all the members killed in the recent
conflict so that their families can be informed.
