The German government has maintained its ban on Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK or MKO), keeping the Paris-based organization on the annual terrorist list of Germany's domestic secret service, Verfassungsschutz, IRNA reported from Berlin.
According to the 2004 Verfassungsschutz report, presented Tuesday by German Interior Minister Otto Schily, the MKO is held "responsible for serious terrorist attacks in Iran".
The report also pointed to MKO's European-wide campaign to whitewash its brutal crimes by "portraying itself as a freedom-loving and democratic exile movement".
The European Union and the US have both designated the MKO a terrorist group.
