Sadrist MP urges the expedition of MKO expulsion

An Iraqi Sadrist MP has urged the Iraq’s government to speed up the expulsion of Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK, a.k.a. MKO and PMOI) members from the Arab country.

Reiterating the impossibility of further presence of MKO terrorists in Iraq, the Iraqi parliamentarian said the return of the MKO members to Camp Ashraf is impossible, Habilian Association reported.

Al-Mansouri was quoted by Ashraf News as saying that the MKO terrorist group constitutes a threat to the Iraq’s security, adding, the only option for the group is their immediate expulsion from Iraq.

Hussein al-Mansouri also pointed out that some members of the MKO group are wanted by the police in connection with their crimes under Saddam Hussein.

The Iraqi officials have repeatedly emphasized that the members of the Mujahedin-e Khalq organization, armed and supported by the Iraqi executed dictator Saddam Hussein, pose a real threat to Iraq's territorial integrity. Hence, the Iraqi government has signed an agreement with the Special Representative of the Secretary-General and head of the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) Martin Kobler to relocate the residents of Camp Ashraf to a temporary transit location where the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) will start a process of refugee status determination, a necessary first step for their expulsion outside Iraq.
