Iraqi tribes support PM's move to expel MKO members

The Iraq National Tribal Leaders Conference on Tuesday supported recent decision of Iraqi Prime Minister to sue criminals and saboteurs, calling for closure of the garrison of the outlawed and terrorist Mujahideen Khalq Organization (MKO).

Habilian Association (families of Iranian terror victims) database on Tuesday quoted participants in the meeting, arranged by the Secretariat of Iraqi Islamic Tribal Council, as supporting recent move of the Iraqi prime minister to prosecute the criminals against the country's national security and demanded the PM hand them over to Iraqi judiciary.

The participants also praised the Iraqi government’s efforts to fight terrorism, close the MKO garrison and expel MKO members from Iraqi territory. They called on all Iraqi citizens to maintain unity and contribute to promotion of security and democracy in Iraq.

Earlier this week, a group of tribal elders in Mendeli region in Iraq have voiced their full support for the Iraqi government’s position on the Mujahedin-e Khalq terrorist group, and urged (the government) to close the (MKO) case at the earliest possible.
