The following was written for ASHCAM by Habib Baradaran, a former Ashraf City resident who now lives in Camp Liberty.
I still hadn’t broken my fast when I heard the news of the death of my dear friend Taghi Abbasian in Camp Liberty. I’ll never forget that day. It was 18 September 2014, a grim day if ever there was one. I rushed to the camp’s clinic, my breakfast forgotten.
Camp Liberty, in the proximity of Baghdad’s International Airport, is where 2,800-odd Iranian refugees are living under prison-like conditions imposed by Iraqi forces loyal to former Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and the Iranian regime.

Maryam Rajavi: West must show resolve if it is to stop Iranian regime from obtaining nuclear bomb
Cooperation with Iranian regime under pretense of fighting ISIS is not a solution but a recipe for disaster
Maryam Rajavi, Iranian Resistance President-elect Maryam Rajavi told a conference at the European Parliament on Wednesday, December 10: “The West needs to show resolve to stop Iran from obtaining the nuclear bomb.”
She stressed: “This nuclear program enjoys no legitimacy in the eyes of the Iranian people. According to government figures, 12 million Iranian people are suffering from hunger. They do not want this program to continue.”
Rajavi pointed to the increase in atrocities by the fundamentalists in Syria and Iraq, and asked: “Why are Western governments not standing up to a regime that is the ‘Godfather of ISIS’ with a record a hundred times worse than ISIS. How can European governments justify their silence vis-à-vis the regime’s suppression? More regrettable is the fact that the regime’s lobby has been encouraged to promote collaboration with the Iranian regime as the solution to defeating ISIS. This is not a solution, but a recipe for disaster.” Continue reading Maryam Rajavi: West must show resolve to stop Iran from obtaining nuclear bomb

The British Parliamentary Committee for Iran Freedom (BPCIF) has issued a press release concerning recent baseless misleading remarks by Iraq’s minister of Human Rights, Mahdi al-Bayati, after his meeting with the Special Advisor to the UN Secretary-General on Resettlement of Liberty Residents, Mrs Jane Holl-Lute.
The Iranian refugees in Camp Liberty, Iraq, designated as Protected Persons by the United Nations, were made promises by the United Nations and United States, in return for disarming.
The residents of the camp were originally in Camp Ashraf, but they were tricked into relocating to Camp Liberty by UN Special Representative Martin Kobler, who promised them safe passage and protection. Hundreds of the residents have been killed by Iraqi and Iranian operatives over the past few years in attacks inside their camps.

Iraq: Camp Liberty Medical Siege is Crime Against Humanity
Depriving terminally ill and cancer patients, on the verge of losing their lives, of medical treatment is considered crime against humanity. Such horrific crimes are completely politically motivated and carried out by Iraqi security forces loyal to the Iranian regime at a camp adjacent to Baghdad airport and ironically named ‘Liberty‘, all under the very eyes of the UN.
Another patient suffering from heart illness says,“Iraqi forces cancelled my medical appointment for various reasons while I don’t know if there will be another turn for me.”
Around 3,000 Iranian dissidents, who have during the past 28 years lived as refugees in Iraq, are now the targets of this massive crime. This blockade has to this day taken the lives of 22 of these refugees, who lived in Camp Ashraf – located 90 kilometers north of Baghdad up to 2011 – and then transferred to Camp Liberty neighboring Baghdad airport under a mandatory relocation. On Sunday, 9 November 2014, patients in Camp Liberty held a rally protesting this medical siege that has been ongoing for 5 years.

Part of President Obama’s solution to the Islamic State should be to ‘evict’ the Iranian regime and its militias from Iraq. That would give the new leadership in Baghdad a real and tangible opportunity to form an inclusive government, says General Hugh Shelton, former U.S. chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
In an article published in Boston Globe, General Shelton said: “In fact, the litmus test for Iraq’s new leaders is their ability to distance themselves from the regime in Tehran and treat the Iranian dissidents in Iraq humanely. Failure to do so would have long-term consequences that would prove to be much more catastrophic.” Continue reading US strategy should be to ‘evict’ Iranian regime from Iraq: General Shelton
Published on Washington Times
A bipartisan group of former officials and retired military officers is urging President Obama to provide humanitarian aid to hundreds of Iranian dissidents living at a former U.S. military compound near Baghdad’s international airport.
In an Aug. 28 letter to the president, the group said Iraq’s government has been blocking the delivery of food and medicine to the dissidents at Camp Liberty for about a week. Conditions at the refugee camp have been deteriorating rapidly as its exiled residents “are being denied proper means to sustain life.” Continue reading Ex-officials urge aid for Iranian dissidents at Camp Liberty
