Iraqiya official blasts Maliki for aggressions against Ashraf, calls for US protection

NCRI – A leader within the Iraqi political bloc that won the March parliamentary elections has said in an interview that recent acts of aggression by Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki against Iranian opposition activists in Camp Ashraf prove his allegiance to the Iranian regime.


In an interview with al-Hurra TV, Dr. Saleh Mutlak of the Iraqiya list, said, “A day ?before his visit to Iran, on the orders of the Iranian regime, Maliki clearly showed his allegiance and loyalty to the Iranian regime by being offensive, aggressive and abusive towards the residents of Ashraf, and injured 18 of the residents in the process.”

“Is it not clear that what is happening against Ashraf is directed by the Iranian regime’s intelligence ministry”

Dr. Mutlak added, “Is it not clear that all the loudspeakers that are harassing and disturbing the residents day and night are in reality installed there based on the will and decisions of the Iranian regime”

More than 70 powerful loudspeakers have been installed around Camp Ashraf, where 3,400 members of the main Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) reside, as part of the Iranian regime’s campaign of psychological torture ?against Ashraf residents. The flow of food, fuel and other necessities has also been severely restricted into Ashraf.

In his interview, Dr. Mutlak asked, “Is it not clear that the siege on Ashraf and preventing the entry of basic necessities and food occurs on the orders of the Iranian regime.”

He called on the US government to protect the residents of Ashraf, saying that the US government expressed commitment in exchange for a voluntary disarmament of the residents to protect them. The sensitive developments with regards to Ashraf oblige the US government to protect the residents.

“it would be certainly unacceptable for us to see a government formed on the basis of the Iranian regime’s will and it is impossible for us to accept Maliki for a second term,” Dr. Mutlak added.

The Iranian regime’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) uses these loudspeakers as part of its campaign of psychological torture of Ashraf residents through a few professional agents with full support of a committee within the office of Iraqi Prime Minister tasked with suppression of Ashraf residents.
