To ask Her Majesty's Government further to the Written Answer by Lord Malloch-Brown on 20 April (WA 349–50), whether they have assessed the recent Amnesty International report drawing attention to an interview by the Iraqi National Security Advisor, Dr Muwaffaq al-Rubaie, where he stated the intention to make “intolerable” the conditions of 3,000 People's Mujaheddin Organisation of Iran supporters in Camp Ashraf; and what is their reaction to it. [HL3149]

We are aware of the Amnesty International report of 20 April 2009 and the interview with the Iraqi National Security Adviser. We are continuing to urge the Government of Iraq to observe fully the human rights of the residents of Camp Ashraf and to find a humanitarian solution.
