More than 200 people, holding placards condemning the terrorist MKO grouplet and crimes committed by its heads, protested against the ordeal of their beloved ones being kept in Ashraf prison in Iraq.

The protesters carried placards saying "MKO leader, Masoud Rajavi should be tried" and "Crimes committed by MKO heads not less than those by Saddam".

The protesters also criticized the indifferent attitude of Swiss and British ambassadors in Tehran regarding the fate of their relatives.

According to dispatches, an MKO head, Maryam Rajavi, is to go on trial in France Thursday.

By gathering in front of the French embassy, the protesters urge the French court to find both Masoud and Maryam Rajavi guilty of the crimes committed so far by that grouplet.

The ralliers also called for return of their children to the Islamic Republic of Iran so that the judicial authorities determine their fates.

Meanwhile, two of the protesters entered the French embassy to discuss the issue with the ambassador.
