Camp Ashraf: Deliberately long and gruelling inspections of fifth group of residents takes seven days
NCRI - Inspection of belongings of the fifth group of Ashraf residents that began on April 27 upon the requests and agreements with the United Nations lasted for seven days until May 3 due to deliberate delays, obstructions by the Iraqi forces. The inspection of individuals that began in the afternoon of May 3, continued until Friday May 4.
1. In the group again, a number of patients including those who are paralyzed from leg or waist and require special treatment, refrained from going to Liberty due to lack of minimum required facilities at Liberty and the prevention of the Government of Iraq from transferring their vehicles and special trailers. This was despite the fact that in several letters and emails, the UN had committed to do its utmost to meet the humanitarian needs of the patients, but apparently the Iranian Regime has prevented Nouri-al-Maliki and his security advisor from carrying out their commitments to the U.N. during their recent trip to Tehran.
2. During the inspection of the fifth group, the Iraqi forces with insistence used recording cameras to take close up photos of the faces of the residents. This obvious espionage, that would result in arresting of more family members of the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran inside the country, was strongly protested by Ashraf residents. In November 2011, the Iranian Resistance provided the UN and the US authorities with a list of 177 Ashraf residents whose family members were arrested in Iran to.
3. According to the reports that representatives of Ashraf residents have sent to the UN, on Thursday, May 3, while the fifth group were ready for inspection at 8 AM, Capitan Ahmad, an Iraqi officer who is an agent of the Iranian regime, brought 40 agents of the mullahs' Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) to the vicinity of the inspection site so they would identify and insult the residents and to throw stones at them. The MOIS agents were also present on the route of the residents to Ashraf's cemetery. It is obvious that information regarding the timing of the inspection and move of the residents was already provided to the mullahs' Gestapo by the GoI.
4. The transfer of scores of items and facilities that are needed by the residents in Liberty were not permitted. These items include Iranian flag, sleeping bag, wheelchair, plank, wooden board, paint, receiver, CD player, tape recorder, printer, copy machine, headphone, TV antenna, copier toner, wick, bicycle, shoes, and sports racket. They were thrown out of the containers before the eyes of the UN monitors.
5. During the inspection, the Iraqi forces stole many of the residents' belongings, including home appliances, electric devices, mobile phones, and computer equipments. Many of the boxes that the goods were placed in them were torn apart due to hasty theft or due to being thrown on the ground. The UNAMI monitors took pictures of the half-emptied or totally emptied boxes or bags. The Iraqi forces tried to put the blame on innocent Iraqi drivers who were kilometres away.
6. All the reports of Iraqi forces, similar to their promises all totally false. For instance, in the beginning they asserted that there are complete and fully equipped trailers at Liberty and there is no need for the transfer of the patient's trailers. Even the UN party wrote that the Iraqi party would designate a completely equipped trailer for each of the patients at Liberty.
