National council of Resistance of Iran said in its statement on Dec. 16 that during Wednesday December 14 and Thursday December 15, the military and security forces under Maliki’s command looted everything in the Moein building and facilities complex in the northern section of Camp Ashraf, and distributed the looted property among the soldiers and the units of the Army stationed around Ashraf. NCRI added: This action is taken in preparation for attacking Camp Ashraf. On December 14, the Committee for Suppression of Ashraf at the Office of Iraq’s Prime Minister issued an order to station the new mercenaries of the terrorist Quds Force and the Iranian regime’s Ministry of Intelligence (MOI) at the Moein Building Complex in order to boost the forces around Ashraf. On Thursday December 15, Mulazim Haydar, Iraqi military’s intelligence officer who is stationed at Ashraf by the Suppression Committee, took a number of Iranian MOI agents to the Moein Complex in order to arrange for stationing new mercenaries in that complex. Due to his participation in multiple crimes against Ashraf residents, Mulazem Haydar is summoned by the Spain’s International Court. He was directly and actively participated in the massacre of Ashraf residents on April 8th, 2011.
Camp Ashraf is home to some 3400 Iranian dissidents who are facing inhumane conditions. As if lack of medication, water, food and fuel was not harsh enough, they are ordered out of Iraq by the end of Dec. 2011 by Nouri Almaliki, Iraq’s prime minister. Though they are protected persons under the 4th Genva convention and now are recognized in the United Nations as refugee seekers, the Iraqi government prevents the UN officials to meet with the residence for interviews. On the other hand the early exit of the US army from Iraq seems to be helping the Iraqi forces for more deadly attack on the unarmed residents of Ashraf. Thousands of Parliamentarians around the world have condemned the Dec. 31st. deadline as well as Iraqi leaders who oppose the Maliki regime and have demanded postponement of the deadline. The Iranian communities around the world are also seeking postponement and safe relocations of the Camp Ashraf residence under UN supervision to third countries.
