MKO calls on US to hinder their trial

The Mujahedin-e Khalq terrorist group (a.k.a. MEK and MKO) has asked the US and UN "to condemn" Iran's demand for extradition of MEK criminals in Camp Liberty to Iran.

Earlier the week and prior to the 4-day visit of a delegation of Iraqi judiciary officials, Habilian Association (families of Iranian terror victims) asked the Iranian officials to pursue the extradition of MKO criminals to Iran.

Later in a meeting on Monday with his Iraqi counterpart Medhat Al-Mahmoud, the Iranian Judiciary Chief Sadeq Amoli Larijani called on Baghdad to extradite the MKO members to stand a fair tribunal in Tehran.

"Most of these (MKO) people have admitted to their crimes and we expect the friendly and brotherly country of Iraq to extradite them to Iran within a legal framework to undergo a fair trial," Amoli Larijani said during the meeting.

In its statement, the MKO described the demand as an "absurd request" and called on the US government and the United Nations to "immediately condemn" the statements and to "adopt urgent and effective measures" to protect these individuals.
