Condemn the persecution of PMOI members and supporters in Iraq
17 April 2003

In connection with the USA's attack on the bases of the People's Mujahedeen Organisation of Iran (PMOI) in Iraq, an Islamic regime of Iran spokesperson announced that USA forces and its mercenaries continue to search for PMOI members and supporters and prevent their exiting Iraq. Even some PMOI members who have travel documents of other Western countries have been stranded at the Iraqi Jordanian border and have been prevented from returning to their countries of residence. The collusion of the USA and British governments with the Islamic regime of Iran and the ongoing military attacks of the PMOI's bases by USA forces and their local mercenaries, including the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), is creating a human catastrophe.

The Worker-communist Party of Iran (WPI) reiterates its condemnation of the USA and its local mercenaries' military attacks on the PMOI bases in Iraq. The persecution of the members and supporters of this organisation must end immediately. The members and supporters of the PMOI must be able to enter and travel to other countries without any interference. The USA government and the United Nations are responsible for the security of all opponents of the Islamic Republic of Iran who are in Iraq.
