Association for Defending Victims of Terrorism – Documents obtained by Iran’s intelligence bodies show that the members of the Mujahedin-e-Khalq Organization (MKO) terrorist group received oil from Iraq’s former dictator Saddam Hussein in return for killing the Iranian people, says the prosecutor’s representative.
The third session of the court investigating the crimes of the MKO members was held publicly on Tuesday under the chairmanship of Judge Dehqani in the 11th branch of the criminal court of Tehran Province.
During the hearing, the prosecutor’s representative laid out the details of the documents against the MKO members and their relations with Saddam.
“Intelligence and judicial investigations show that the MKO members, as mercenaries of Iraq, carried out terrorist acts against the people. Also, the intelligence officials have obtained information showing that they took oil from Iraq in exchange for the terrorist acts,” he said.
Judge Dehqani then asked the prosecutor’s representative whether the said documents have been included in the lawsuit raised against the MKO members, to which the representative responded in the affirmative.
“The documents related to this meeting that was held in 2001 in the Iraqi Intelligence Service between the head of the Iraqi intelligence and Masoud Rajavi in the presence of Mehdi Abrishamchi have been documented and included in the lawsuit,” he said.
“In this meeting, the indictment of a number of other defendants in this case was read out. In the first and second session of the court, the charges brought up against 23 defendants were read out.”
