Liberty residents and the Iranian Resistance strongly protest suppressive and police actions aimed at destruction of the opposition at the request of the Iranian regime.

Liberty-no. 9

The scandalous conversion of Camp Liberty to a prison is becoming ever more clear day by day. Now it is quite clear why the Government of Iraq did not agree to the requests of 23 American Generals, Secretaries, former Governors, and prominent personalities, including Rudy Giuliani, who wanted to visit the camp at their own expense prior to relocating 400 Ashraf residents to Liberty.

It’s been five months since the 3400 Iranian dissidents of camp Ashraf, in Iraq, submitted their requests to UNHCR. But UNHCR has not yet begun its work to reconfirm the status of the residents of this camp as asylum seekers. Bowing to Iranian pressure and looking to pave the way for the slaughter of the residents, the Iraqi government has conditioned the start of this process to their relocation to a prison in Baghdad, ironically named as ‘Camp Liberty’.

Camp Liberty-No. 3

"Shelter expert's" lies on Liberty infrastructure ready to host 5500 people exposed

The statement of UNAMI on January 31, stated "the infrastructure and facilities at Camp Liberty are in accordance with the international humanitarian standards stipulated in the MoU." A technical report by a shelter expert dated January 30 which served as basis for the UNAMI statement confirmed that "the camp is currently configured to accommodate 5,500 persons." The UNAMI statement pretended that the UNHCR had approved the situation of camp Liberty, but the latter was explicit in its February 1 statement that the new location was "being provisioned" and "the UNHCR has been advising on the technicalities of improving the camp infrastructure."

Press Release  18 February 2012

Upon the request of the Iranian opposition leader, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, 400 members of the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran at Camp Ashraf have moved to Camp Liberty today. According to many independent observers, including the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, without freedom of movement, free access to medical services, ability to meet lawyers and without the Iraqi armed forces leaving Camp Liberty, Camp Liberty will be a prison for these 400 refugees. We commend Ashraf leadership for taking this risk and showing maximum flexibility to reach a peaceful solution to this crisis.

Baghdad (CNN) - By the CNN Wire Staff  February 18, 2012 - About 400 members of an exiled Iranian opposition group who are the first to leave a long-term camp in Iraq under a U.N. plan criticized their treatment and the conditions at the new temporary site Saturday.

The group left Camp Ashraf at midnight following 12 hours of inspections and checks, Shahin Gobadi of the National Council of Resistance of Iran said in a statement.

Whoever has certified the humanitarian standards and human rights and international standards for protection of refugees, in particular freedom of movement in a "voluntary relocation," should appear before the reporters and residents and answer to them.

Upon the request of Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, for transitional period of transferring power to Iranian people, 400 members of the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran at Camp Ashraf are going to Camp Liberty this afternoon.

BAGHDAD  — Lugging clothes, tables and whatever else they were allowed to bring, roughly 400 members of an Iranian exile group reluctantly moved Saturday from their camp in northwestern Iraq to a deserted military base outside the capital in what they called a show of good faith that they eventually will be allowed to leave the country peacefully.

It was the first group to move of the more than 3,300 members of the People's Mujahedeen Organization of Iran who have lived at Camp Ashraf for three decades.

On Saturday, February 11, coinciding with the 33rd anniversary of the anti-Monarchial Revolution in Iran, in a great gathering in Paris, thousands of Iranians, while being supported by a number of prominent European and American dignitaries, reminded that a major development is on the way in Iran and a democratic change, as a solution to avoid an unprecedented regional and international crisis, is at hand.

NEW YORK, Feb. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A bipartisan group of former U.S. political and military leaders is calling for the U.S. State Department to remove a prominent Iranian dissident group, the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran/Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (PMOI/MeK), from its list of terrorist organizations, saying the classification is unjustified and 3,400 Iranian dissidents housed at Camp Ashraf in Iraq cannot be safely resettled until the change is made.
