Letter of SFF to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees
Sahar Family Foundation in Baghdad sent a letter to Mr. Filippo Grandi, the new UN High Commissioner for Refugees, simultaneous to the presence of the families in front of the gates of Camp Liberty in Iraq.
The text of the letter is as follows:
Mr. Filippo Grandi, UN High Commissioner for Refugees – Geneva
With respect, we wish to let you know that after 12 years since the overthrow of Saddam Hussein, and continuous focus on relocating the members of the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization from Iraq during this period, there are still more than two thirds of the members living in insecure conditions in Iraq.
The anguished families of the members would like to know what the obstacles are which stand in the way of relocating them to places of safety and then to third countries. The families would also like to know exactly why they are denied visits with their loved ones which is their very natural and basic right.
We are awaiting your kind response.
Sahar Family Foundation
Baghdad – January 24, 2016
