Families of Ashraf residents were stopped from visiting with their loved ones

National Council of Resistance of Iran
February 11, 2009

At the request of the mullahs’ regime; families of Ashraf residents were stopped from visiting with their loved ones

In bad weather conditions, fifteen people including 9 women and 4 children were kept outside Ashraf Camp

NCRI - In an unlawful act, upon the request of the mullahs’ regime, Mr. Mouwaffaq al-Rubaie, Iraqi National Security Advisor has ordered Iraqi forces not to allow families and relatives of Ashraf residents from entering the camp. The group has come from Iran to visit their loved ones.

Since February 9, fifteen family members of the Ashraf residents including nine women have been stopped outside the gates in extreme winter weather conditions. Six elders in their late fifties are among the group. A 10-year-old girl, an 11-year-old boy and two 16 and 17-year-old girls are also among those remaining outside the camp. By committing such inhuman crimes, the Iranian regime plans to turn Ashraf City into a prison. Preventing the families from entering the camp is a blatant violation of fundamental rights of Ashraf residents and their families, Human Rights Charter, International Humanitarian Law and international law.

The Iranian Resistance calls for an urgent action by the UN Secretary General, the UN Security Council, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and all other human rights organizations to put an end to the restrictions imposed on the Ashraf Residents and their families, particularly those stopped at Ashraf gates.
