Iraqi Supreme Criminal Court issued arrest warrant for top leader of terrorist Mojahedin Khalq Organization (MKO) Massoud Rajavi, Maryam Rajavi, Amir Kazemi as well as 35 other members of the group.

"Based on article 12 of Iraqi Supreme Criminal Court law, Iraqi Interior Ministry and the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) are commissioned to arrest and transfer the MKO elements to the court," Iraqi Motamar daily reported.

The report says that Ashraf camp, formerly controlled by the US forces since the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, is now overseen by Iraqi police forces.

The Iraq-based MKO is listed as a terrorist group by many international organizations and some countries.

The MKO founded in 1960s and has spear headed a large number of terrorist attacks in Iran and Iraq, killing and injuring thousands of people.

The US troops disarmed the MKO terrorists following the 2003 US-led invasion on Iraq. Former Iranian President Mohammad-Ali Rajaei, Prime Minister Mohammad-Javad Bahonar and Judiciary Chief Mohammad Husseini Beheshti are among victimes of the group's attacks who all were assassinated in 1981.
