Security and Safety of Camps Ashraf and Liberty Residents

International Conference at the European Parliament –

entitled Security and Safety of Camps Ashraf and Liberty Residents. The conference included a number of distinguished members of the European Parliament, former senior UN and US officials, and senators and parliamentarians from other states.

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance, participated in the meeting and provided the keynote speech of the event that included an update on developments at Camps Ashraf and Liberty and asked for urgent action by the EU to protect the 3,100 Iranian refugees there. She said the residents of Liberty should be transferred to the US or a European country, even on a temporary basis, or the conditions should be set for the return of the residents to the relative safety of Camp Ashraf.

The former senior UN officials and US military officers who had held various responsibilities in Ashraf and Liberty in recent years were invited and spoke as witnesses in the conference. In particular, Tahar Boumedra, Chief of the United Nations Assistance Mission in the Iraq (UNAMI) Human Rights Office, who resigned in May 2012 in protest at the conduct of UN envoy Martin Kobler, testified about the policy of the Iraqi government and the UNAMI regarding Ashraf.

The participants’ talks and their follow-up discussions and exchanges were insightful and highlighted the unfair plight and unjust treatment of the Iranian refugees in Iraq because of the UN envoy Martin Kobler’s incompetence.
