Iraq: Camp Ashraf

Volume 699: debated on Wednesday 27 February 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will consult Iranian residents of Camp Ashraf and the Temporary International Protection Facility and the Iraqi and United States authorities about the resettlement of the persons in those camps elsewhere in Iraq or abroad. [HL1897]

The Iraqi and US authorities are responsible for Camp Ashraf in Iraq. Officials in our embassies in Baghdad and Washington continue regularly to discuss the future of Camp Ashraf with their Iraqi and US counterparts. UK officials have no contact with members of the Mujaheddin e Khalq (also known as the People's Mujaheddin of Iran) resident in Camp Ashraf as the organisation is currently proscribed under the Terrorism Act.
