West's support for MKO, empty nature of its pro-human rights claims

Iran's Judiciary Spokesman and Prosecutor-General Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejeii said the West's support for the terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (the MKO, also known as the MEK, NCR and PMOI) displays that its mottos about respect for human rights are mere words which meet no action.

"How is it possible that the US and Israel as well as some western countries consider themselves as supporters of human rights, while they paved the way for the killing of and damage to a large number of Iranian citizens through their support for the MKO in the past years," Mohseni Ejeii said.

Instead of blocking the attempts of terrorists groups in line with their mottos about support for human rights, the western countries recognize these groups and endorse the behavior of these terrorist groups through this recognition, he complained.

The group started assassination of the citizens and officials after the revolution in a bid to take control of the newly established Islamic Republic. It killed several of Iran's new leaders in the early years after the revolution, including the then President, Mohammad Ali Rajayee, Prime Minister, Mohammad Javad Bahonar and the Judiciary Chief, Mohammad Hossein Beheshti who were killed in bomb attacks by MKO members in 1981.

The group fled to Iraq in 1986, where it was protected by Saddam Hussein and where it helped the Iraqi dictator suppress Shiite and Kurd uprisings in the country.
