Iran is ready to pardon hundreds of members of an exiled Iranian opposition group based at a former military camp near Baghdad, Iran's ambassador to Iraq told the Mehr news agency on Wednesday.
"After conducting investigations, 423 members (of the People's Mujahedeen Organisation of Iran - PMOI) who do not have any legal problems can return to Iran," Hassan Danaeifar was quoted as saying.
The number represents about 14 percent of the estimated 3,000 members of the PMOI who are living in exile at Camp Liberty, near Baghdad airport.
"Iran is ready to pardon those members who did not kill anyone or do not have complaints against them," he said, without elaborating.
Danaeifar added that a bid by "a considerable number of this group who wish to come back to Iran was blocked by their leaders".
