Report: MKO Relocating Members to Canada, Germany After Albania's Pressures
TEHRAN (FNA)- Several higher post members of the Mojahedin-e-Khalq Organization (MKO) terror cult are fleeing the Ashraf-3 Camp in Tirana to Canada and Germany for fear of getting arrested by Albania's officials -- a move that has angered rank and file members of the group who think they have been abandoned in the European country.
As the Tirana government has forced the MKO terrorists to leave their camp in the country, quarrels have broken out among those at the bottom of the pecking order over who can flee Albania first. A report by Tasnim news agency announced there is uncertainty about the future of the notorious group and its new base.
The MKO ringleaders have reportedly made arrangements for the relocation of members from their camp in Albania to an undisclosed location in Canada with resident permits of the country or temporary passports in the first step.
An informed security source told Tasnim on Saturday that following mounting pressure from the Tirana government, the MKO ringleaders decided to relocate some of the terrorists to Germany and some to Canada.
The MKO’s plan for the evacuation of the Ashraf-3 Camp in the Northwestern region of Tirana and relocation of the terrorists to a new country has sparked disputes among its members.
The MKO leaders last month come up with the relocation plan after Albanian police authorities and the country’s Special Court on Corruption and Organized Crime introduced a series of strict restrictions on residents of the Ashraf-3 Camp, following the discovery of incriminating evidence.
The MKO ringleaders have failed to convince French officials to agree with the relocation of a number of the terrorists to a camp in Auvers-sur-Oise commune on the northwestern outskirts of Paris.
Albania has put various restrictions on the group.
Back in June, Albanian police raided the camp on the grounds that the MKO was involved in "terror and cyber attacks" against foreign institutions.
Authorities seized 150 computer devices linked to terrorist activities. At least one person was killed and dozens of others were injured during the clashes at the camp.
Earlier in August, Albanian police reportedly took control of the Ashraf-3 Camp and imposed a strict curfew over the entire area.
In the latest move by Albania to restrict the MKO's terrorist and cyber activities and tighten the noose around the terrorist cult, the Tirana government cut off access to internet at the Ashraf-3 Camp late in August.
Iran has been the target of terrorist attacks in the past few decades and thousands of its citizens have been martyred by the terrorist groups. Officials described the country as the biggest victim of terrorism. Iranian officials blasted the Western countries for their double-standard policies on terrorism, and described Iran as the biggest victim of terrorism.
Back in late July, Iran announced it has filed a lawsuit against dozens of members of the MKO terror group. Among the individuals named were Masoud Rajavi and Maryam Qajar Azedanlou (Rajavi), the ringleaders of the MKO terrorist group, and Mehdi Abrishamchi.
Iranian officials stressed that Tehran is determined to employ all available tools to counter terrorism. They lamented the fact that the members of the MKO are freely wandering around in some Western countries despite having murdered numerous innocent Iranian nationals.
After the Islamic Revolution in 1979, the MKO terror group began its enmity against Iran by killing thousands of Iranians and terrorist activities.
Several members of the terrorist group and its leaders are living in European countries now, freely conducting terrorist activities. Iranian officials have repeatedly insisted that the MKO terror group will always pose a threat to the security and stability of its host countries.
Tehran has repeatedly lashed out at certain European countries for supporting and hosting members of terrorist groups, including the MKO. Iranian officials have warned of retaliation against countries that assist Tehran's enemies to launch sabotage and terror attacks on their nation.
The MKO terrorist group has martyred 17,161 Iranian citizens and officials, including late president Mohammad Ali Rajayee, former Prime Minister Mohammad Javad Bahonar, late Head of Supreme Judicial Council Ayatollah Mohammad Beheshti, late Deputy Chief of the Iranian Armed Forces General Staff Ali Sayyad Shirazi, and 27 legislators, as well as four nuclear scientists, some on itself and some others through collusion with Israeli Mossad and other notorious spy agencies like CIA.
The terror group regularly hosts big events in which top US and European officials make speeches in support of the group. Former US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, former National Security Advisor John Bolton, and former Vice President Mike Pence met with the terror group’s leader several times, voiced their support for the notorious cult.
Iran has slapped sanction on several US individuals and officials for their support for the MKO terrorist group, stating Washington continues assisting the terrorist group which has its hands stained with the blood of thousands of Iranian civilians.
The sanctioned US diplomats include Pompeo, Bolton, Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, and several others.
