On 19 June 2006, the Home Office published the ‘Report on the Operation in 2005 of the Terrorism Act 2000’ by Lord Carlile of Berriew, QC (the government-appointed independent reviewer of terrorism legislation). 

 At paragraph 43 of his report, Lord Carlile stated, “There is some concern that the UK government occasionally is inflexible in its attitude to changing situations around the world, with reference to proscription.  An example of this is the Iran opposition group commonly known as the PMOI.  They claim to have disarmed in 2003 to become a political organisation dedicated to the reform of government in Iran.  They certainly have significant Parliamentary support across parties at Westminster.  I am sure that the group referred to above [a government working group responsible for scrutinising proscription] will give serious examination to whether the PMOI really should remain proscribed.
