A senior official in Iraq’s Diyala province has said that the province’s council has “no involvement with the inhumane pressures imposed on the residents of Camp Ashraf.”
Camp Ashraf, situated in Diyala, is home to 3,400 members of the main Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).
Ziad al-Dalvi added that there have been many complaints about the large number of loudspeakers installed around the camp to harass its residents. “We consider these and similar measures contrary to humanitarian principles and human rights,” he said.
“The problem is that the federal government has created a monopoly over this case.”
He also said it is imperative for the United Nations to interfere and resolve the matter in a just and humane way to ensure the safety of the residents.
