Baghdad, May 27 – Iraq’s acting National Human Rights Inspector released a report today on his findings during fact-finding visits to the main camp of the Iran’s most active opposition group, the People’s Mojahedin Organisation of Iran, a week after a U.S.-based rights groups accused them of having violated the rights of their own members.

Sofyan Abbass, a prominent legal expert and advisor to several international NGOs, is Iraq’s acting National Human Rights Inspector.

He said in his report on the PMOI that he “did not find any proof or reason to believe that human rights were violated in Camp Ashraf”.

The legal report, based on fact-finding visits to Camp Ashraf, northeast of Baghdad, from November 2004 to May 2005, noted that despite a rigorous and methodical inspection of the entire compound no “torture centres” or “prisons” were discovered.

Abbass said that he privately interviewed some 3,000 members of the Mojahedin in Camp Ashraf to make certain that they were free to express their true views.

The report concluded that individuals in Camp Ashraf were never subjected to torture by the PMOI or abused in any way by the group.
