Iraq – Camp Liberty: Iranian dissidents protest prison-making measures, rights violations against refugees

A few thousand Iranian opposition refugees, dissidents of the fundamentalist regime ruling Iran, stationed in Camp Liberty adjacent to Baghdad International Airport held rallies protesting and condemning security conditions in the camp and the continuing all-out logistical siege imposed by Iraqi security forces loyal to the Iranian regime. They called on the UN and UNHCR to recognize Camp Liberty as a refugee camp.

According to official agreements between the UN and former Iraqi Government, along with written guarantees provided by the US government to the Iranian dissidents in Iraq, Camp Liberty was to be a temporary transit camp for their resettlement in third countries.
