Spanish Court Starts Investigation Of Iraq's National Security Advisor For Ccrimes Aagainst Iranian Dissidents, Maryam Rajavi Urges Iranians To End Hunger Strike

MADRID, December 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

A prominent Spanish human rights lawyer announced on December 17 that the Central Investigative Court Number 4 of Spain has declared that Mr. Faleh al-Fayad, the National Security Advisor to Iraqi Prime Minister, Nouri-al-Maliki, is under investigation "for the alleged commission of offences against the international community." The victims were Iranian dissidents. They were residents of Camp Ashraf and Camp Liberty, and members of the Iranian opposition movement, the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).  

According to Dr. Juan Garces, this court ruling has been adopted under the principles of universal jurisdiction conferred upon national Courts of Justice by the Fourth Geneva Convention.

Garces is former advisor to the Director General of UNESCO and personal adviser to former Chilean President Salvador Allende. He is the recipient of the Right Livelihood Award (often referred to as the Alternative Nobel Prize).

Following this order by the Spanish Court, Iranian opposition leader Maryam Rajavi urged residents of Camp Liberty and Iranian expatriates in Washington, DC, London, Berlin, Ottawa, Melbourne, Rome, and Geneva to end their worldwide hunger strike.

Hundreds of Iranians had been on a hunger strike for more than 100 days in an effort to call attention to the attacks that had been perpetrated against the residents of Camp Ashraf, and the fate of seven residents who were taken hostage from Camp Ashraf during the September 1 attack by the Iraqi government.

Despite calling an end to the hunger strike Rajavi vowed that collective action would continue to pursue the goal of demanding protection for the residents of Camp Liberty, as well as freeing the seven hostages
