Radio Irava's interview with Shahabeh Barooti a Camp Liberty resident whose mother along with 6 other Ashraf residents were abducted by the Iraqi forces on Sept. 1, 2013

Spanish court verdict and its effects of freeing the 7 Ashraf hostages
 On Dec. 17 a Spanish court ruled against Faleh Fayad, National Security Adviser to Nouri al-Maliki Iraq' Prime minister, for crimes against the international community committed during his direct role in the September 1 massacre of 52 residents of the Iranian Camp Ashraf and abduction of seven others. My guest's mother -Mahnaz Azizi- is among the 7 hostages. Earlier today I had the chance to speak to her daughter Shahabe Barooti who joined the global hunger strike which began in Camp Liberty on Sept. 1, 2013 to put pressure on the world powers to free her mom and the other 6 hostages. On Dec. 17 Mrs. Maryam Rajavi the President elect of the Iranian resistance urged Camp Liberty residents and the Iranians in various countries to end their hunger strike. She emphasized that the struggle to free the 7 hostages are going a head with full power.
