Zahedan, March 7, IRNA -- Former members of the terrorist Mojahedin
Khalq Organizations called on international organizations to help
repatriate their friends from Iraqi camp.
Mohammad Nour, one of the former members of the Mojahedin Khalq
Organization (MKO) who has returned home from Iraq called on human
rights organizations to help those being kept in the camps, come home.
He said that many of those being kept by the MKO had gone
abroad to find jobs or for education, but, they have fallen to the
trap of the MKO.
Those being kept in the MKO camp are exposed to hard labor without
getting any reward. They are not allowed to leave the camp and go
back to Iran under pretext that they will be put to death as soon as
they arrive home, he said.
He called on the international organizations to help the people
kept by the MKO leave the camp.
Some 19 members of the MKO from Sistan-Baluchestan province
arrived in Zahedan on Tuesday and were welcomed by their families.
Meanwhile, about 276 penitent MKO members who have returned home
after escaping from the camp in Iraq, were handed over to their
families, the Salvation Society head said Monday evening.
Speaking at a ceremony on repatriation of eight MKO members, Ali
Asghari, added, "Most of them had left Iran in hope of finding jobs,
but they were trapped by the MKO agents and later taken to its
notorious Ashraf camp in Iraq."
