President of the IHRS in the United States says Iraq has the right to close Camp Ashraf, Mujahedin-e Khalq’s paramilitary base in Iraq, and the U.N. is responsible for finding third countries for MEK members’ resettlement.
Hamid Murad, president of the Iraqi Human Rights Society in the U.S., told Habilian reporter on Monday that the United States suggested that all the parties and relevant organizations gather data on the Mujahedin-e Khalq terrorists group’s crimes and illegal activities inside Iraq in order to be delivered to the Iraqi courts.
“After an agreement signed between Iraq and the United Nations, this country has the right to close down Ashraf garrison,” he said.
So far, roughly 3000 MEK members have been expelled from Camp Ashraf to Camp Liberty, but still some 200 members are remaining there to “address former residual issues.”
Murad added that the United Nations has to find a third country in order for the MEK members to be resettled there.
