MKO leader loses appeal at Supreme Court to get entry into UK

Eminent pro-MKO parliamentarians have lost a Supreme Court battle over Home Secretary Theresa May's decision to ban the leader of MKO terrorist group from Britain.

“An appeal by the cross-party group of 15 MPs and peers, led by Liberal Democrat Lord Carlile, was rejected in a majority ruling by justices at the UK's highest court,” Hillingdon Times reported.

They had previously lost actions in the High Court and Court of Appeal over the exclusion of Maryam Rajavi.

The MPs wanted to invite Maryam Rajavi to address meetings to be held in the Palace of Westminster.

Home Secretary Theresa May says Rajavi’s entry to the UK would not be conducive to the public good for reasons of foreign policy and in light of the need to take a firm stance against terrorism.

Both the High Court and Court of Appeal held that the exclusion was "justified and proportionate".
