Association for Defending Victims of Terrorism – Iran’s top human rights official says the Islamic Republic has brought a “huge” case against more than a hundred members of the terrorist cult Mujahedin-e-Khalq Organization (MKO), which has murdered tens of thousands of Iranian citizens.
In an interview with ISNA news agency published on Saturday, Kazem Gharibabadi, secretary of Iran’s High Council for Human Rights, emphasized that Iran wants to rid the world of terrorism and terror outfits.
He explained that a “huge” case has been brought against 107 high-profile members of the MKO, and their indictment has been referred to a court in Iran. A special branch has also been formed to deal with the matter, and the defendants have been notified via email, he said.

“The court will soon start its work in accordance with the provisions of the criminal procedure,” he said.
Gharibabadi reiterated that the Islamic Republic is determined to employ all available tools to counter terrorists, especially the MKO terrorist group.
He also lamented the fact that the members of the MKO are freely wandering around in some Western countries despite having murdered numerous innocent Iranian nationals.
“In parallel with the legal, judicial and political pressures that the Islamic Republic of Iran has exerted on some countries housing MKO members, those states have also independently come to the conclusion that the MKO is really a terrorist group. They are placing limitations on them, and we welcome the restrictive measures against the MKO terrorists,” Gharibabadi noted.
