Baghdad, Iraq, Jan. 17 – At a conference in Baghdad today, some 3,230 eminent Iraqi law experts and lawyers released a statement on the legal status of the main Iranian opposition group, the People’s Mojahedin Organisation of Iran, calling it a legitimate movement.

The conference in the Babylon Hotel was attended by more than 1,000 Iraqi law experts and political and social figures in support of the Iranian opposition, and by over 50 different media organisations.

The 3,230 Iraqi legal experts all signed a statement approving the November 2004 Paris Declaration which said that the PMOI was a legitimate resistance group and that the terror-tag placed upon it was not based on facts and had to be removed.

They accused the Iranian regime of meddling in the internal affairs of Iraq attempting to destabilize the country in the hope of influencing the January 30 elections.

The legal authorities argued that the PMOI believes in a democratic Islam and acts as a barrier against Islamic fundamentalism emanating from Tehran, demanding that its presence on Iraqi soil in Ashraf City be preserved.

They presented a legal case for the need to remove the terrorist designation of the PMOI and said that the separation of the Mojahedin from their weapons only served the interests of the clerical regime ruling Iran.

In the statement the law experts also expressed their willingness to defend the legal positions of the PMOI in a court of law.

The legal experts present at the conference also called for:

• “Security on the Iran-Iraq border and the prevention of the regime’s terrorist agents;
• Disclose the identities of the Iranian regime’s agents;
• Acknowledgement of the Mojahedin as a legitimate resistance movement;
• Respect for the Mojahedin’s right to property ad resources in Iraq
• The retraction of the terrorist label on the People’s Mojahedin Organisation of Iran, who itself is the biggest victim of state terror, by the United States and the European Union”.
