About the Book

The People's Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI) is an Iranian opposition movement in exile and the key component of the National Council of Resistance of Iran. Regarded as a terrorist organization in the EU until 2009, and in the USA and Canada until 2012, it renounced violence in 2001. Whilst its leaders are based in Paris, some 3,500 are currently held in Camp Liberty, near Baghdad Airport, in appalling conditions.

In this book, former MEP Struan Stevenson tells how he became an active collaborator and supporter of the PMOI, visiting Baghdad and Erbil on several occasions and meeting political and religious leaders, despite being warned to sever links with the organization by the UK government and MI5, and facing constant threats and smear campaigns from the Iranian mullahs. In this book he exposes the brutality of the clerical regime in Iran and their execution of over 130,000 PMOI supporters, interspersing his own story with short interviews with PMOI political prisoners who were tortured and held in inhumane conditions.
