Habilian SG: No country ready to shelter MKO terrorists

No country in the world is ready to shelter members of the anti-Iran terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO), Habilian Secretary-General announced on Tuesday.

“Monafeqin (the Hypocrites, MKO members as they are called in Iran) have announced that they will accept leaving Iraq, but no country accepts to shelter them because they have sought group asylum which is outside the boundaries of the laws of all countries and international bodies,” Secretary-General of Iran's Habilian Foundation Seyed Mohammad Javad Hasheminejad told FNA.

He said that Camp Liberty - where MKO members have been transiently sheltering after they were expelled from their main training center, Camp Ashraf, in Northern Iraq - operates under international standards for asylum-seekers and those who reside in this camp mean that they are seeking asylum.

So they should end their membership in the group because international laws require members of terrorist groups to defect as a precondition for asylum-seeking, he added.

To date, almost 1600 MKO terrorists have been transferred from Camp Ashraf to Camp Liberty which lies northeast of the Baghdad International Airport, in four groups of 400 each, on February 18, 8, March 20, and April 16. Some 1400 members of the cult at Camp Ashraf are waiting to be sent to their last temporary home in Iraq.

According to Kurdistan News Agency, the fifth group refused to be moved to Camp Liberty amid disputes over the transferal and sale of their property.
