Press release
Today, MEPs from all political groups in the European Parliament urged the leadership of the EU and the member states to force the Iraqi government to release the 7 hostages, including 6 women, who were abducted by Iraqi government forces on 1 September during the massacre in camp Ashraf. On that day 52 defenceless members of the Iranian opposition PMOI-MEK were executed by Iraqi special forces. The 42 remaining residents, who are eye witnesses to this atrocity, have been transferred to camp Liberty near Baghdad airport, where 3000 Iranian refugees are living under intolerable conditions imposed by the Iraq authorities.
