No country should grant MKO members asylum: Iranian MP

Iranian lawmaker Seyyed Hossein Naqavi Hosseini says no country should grant asylum to members of the terrorist Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO).

“The MKO is a terrorist group and governments should not grant them asylum,” Naqavi Hosseini said on Monday.The Iranian lawmaker added that all of MKO’s inhumane actions have been registered in the group’s “criminal record”.

Naqavi Hosseini said paving ground for the MKO terrorists to continue their activities is “against international law”.

In December 2011, the United Nations and Baghdad agreed to relocate some 3,000 MKO members from Camp New Iraq, formerly known as Camp Ashraf, in Diyala province to Camp Liberty - a former US military base near Baghdad International Airport.

According to reports, all MKO members were relocated to Camp Liberty earlier this week.

The MKO has carried out numerous acts of violence against Iranian civilians and government officials. The group is also known to have cooperated with former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in suppressing the 1991 uprisings in southern Iraq and carrying out the massacre of Iraqi Kurds.
