{mosimage}BPCIF: MPs and Peers condemn Iraq for transforming parts of an ex-US base in Baghdad, Camp Liberty, into a makeshift prison to house some 3,400 Iranian dissidents - members of the main Iranian opposition PMOI who are currently residing in Camp Ashraf, 90 km north of Baghdad.

{mosimage}BPCIF: Two Archbishops and 16 Bishops call on political leaders to raise their voice and condemn the displacement of the camp residents inside Iraq without international protection and urge the Iraqi government to revoke this deadline and allow the UN Refugee Agency to start its task in the camp. If we fail to do so, the blood of innocents will be on our collective hands.

BPCIF: More than  150 cross party MPs and Peers have condemned the Iraqi government's intention to forcefully close Camp Ashraf (home to Iranian dissidents for over 25 years) at the end of this year. They warn about the massacre of 3,400 residents including 1000 women in the camp. So far Iraqi forces, under the command of Iraqi PM Nouri al-Maliki, have killed 47 of these defenceless and unarmed refugees and injured hundreds of others in two deadly assaults at the behest of the Iranian regime.
