In Committee from the House of Commons - Subcommittee on International Human Rights - May 15, 2012


Subcommittee on International Human Rights (May 15, 2012)

Retired U.S. Army colonel Wesley Martin provided an update on Camp Ashraf in Iraq. An estimated 3,400 Iranian dissidents who are members of the exiled Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (People's Mujahedin of Iran) once lived at the camp. Many of the residents have been relocated to a new transit facility near Baghdad International Airport. Colonel Martin, the base’s former commander, had last briefed the committee in December about the situation in the camp.
