Press TV – Iran’s embassy in London has slammed a British court’s verdict to remove the Mojahedin Khalq Organization from the terrorists blacklist.
In a statement issued Wednesday, the embassy said that the London Appeal Court’s decree is a defined sign of the British government’s double standards on terrorism and the fight against terrorist groups.
“The politically-motivated verdict does not however extricate the British government from its international responsibility of fighting against terrorism extensively and indiscriminately,” the statement underlined.
The London Appeal Court ruled on Wednesday that there were “no valid grounds” to assert that a British panel made legal errors when it ordered the Mojahedin Khalq Organization (MKO) to be removed from the terrorist blacklist.
The London Appeal Court has overlooked the outlawed terrorist group’s infamous background, thus questioned the British government’s claims that it supports peace and fight against terrorism, the statement stressed.
Mojahedin Khalq Organization (MKO) has committed innumerable terrorist acts against the Iranian people and top government officials.
The then President, Mohammad-Ali Rajaei, Prime Minister, Mohammad-Javad Bahonar and the Judiciary Chief, Mohammad-Hossein Beheshti were killed in bomb attacks by MKO members in 1981.
The MKO has been blacklisted as a terrorist organization by many countries.
