The MEK frustrated with Tariq al-Hashemi's death sentence

The MEK frustrated with the Iraqi court’s decision to pass a death sentence on fugitive Iraqi Vice-President Tariq al-Hashemi, has launched a stinging attack on the government of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki.

After an Iraqi court on Sunday sentenced Hashemi - who has been convicted of running a death squad and is currently on the run in Turkey - to hang for the murder of a lawyer and a brigadier general, his terrorist counterparts, the Mujahedin e-Khalq organization couldn’t hide its anger by issuing a statement condemning the Iraqi court’s verdict.

The MEK with its hands stained in the blood of thousands of innocent people, is now supporting an escapee Iraqi official who is convicted of facilitating terrorist operations.

A defected member of the Mujahedin e-Khalq organization who was also Massoud Rajavi’s personal translator, had recently revealed the close cooperation between al-Hashemi and the MEK.

In his remarks in an interview he said he knows some Iraqi oppositions and political figures supporting the MEK, who are taking huge money from the organization directly or indirectly.
