Maryam Rajavi’s interpreter says Tareq al-Hashemi had ties with MKO

The interpreter for Maryam Rajavi, the ringleader of the Mojahedin Khalq Organization, has revealed the names of a number of politicians and media outlets which were connected to the terrorist group, the Persian service of ISNA reported on Monday.

Iraq’s fugitive vice-president, Tareq al-Hashemi, for whom an arrest warrant was issued on December 19, 2011 on the charge of ordering assassinations of government officials, is one of the politicians that cooperated with the MKO, according to the interpreter, Ali Hosseininejad.

Hosseininejad, who has recently left the MKO group, said that he knows many media outlets, such as Azzaman daily newspaper, which received large sums of money from the terrorist group.

A number of the members of the Iraqi National Movement (INM), aka the al-Iraqiya List, have also cooperated with the group.
