Euro MPs Welcome Appointment of EU Special Envoy for Camp Ashraf

Stop Fundamentalism - A cross political party intergroup in the European Parliament discussed the latest developments concerning Camp Ashraf, where members of the Iranian opposition People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (MEK/PMOI) reside, in a meeting at the EP site in Strasbourg on Wednesday, September 28.

Participants that included some 40 Euro MPs and their assistants from different political groups expressed grave concern against threats posing the defenseless residents of the camp. They described the deadline to close the camp by the year's end "impossible" and urged the UN Secretary General and UNHCR to adopt strong measures to protect the unarmed and defenseless residents of Ashraf.

It's a humanitarian catastrophe in the making, make no mistake

The three thousand four hundred Iranian exiles - the disarmed Mujahidin-e Khalq Organisation of Iran - living at Camp Ashraf in north east Iraq close to the Iranian border face further harassment and slaughter with a US proposal to relocate them deeper inside the. The Iraqi government has already made plain its intention to shut the camp down by the end of the year. 

Iraq has been a hostile landlord. On 8 April 2011, in their latest attack on Ashraf, Iraqi troops stormed the camp, an attack that left 36 people dead and was allegedly ordered by Iraq’s Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki on behalf of the Iranian regime, which would dearly love to rid the world of these dissidents. 


Iranian Mojahedin (PMOI) no longer considered Terrorists

Free at Last

Stop Fundamentalism, 26 January, 2009 â€“ After 7 years of continuous struggle in Europe, the Iranian main opposition group, People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran, has managed to remove itself from European list of terrorist organizations.

A European Court had earlier annulled the blacklisting and ruled that the council of ministers was wrong to include the organization in the list.  The final ruling came on 4 December last year, ordering the council to remove the organization immediately from the list.

Reuters reported today that the European states agreed on Monday to remove exiled Iranian opposition group, the People's Mojahidin Organization of Iran (PMOI) from the EU list of banned terrorist groups.
