An independent report on the 1 September 2013 massacre at Camp Ashraf in Iraq, published on the one-year anniversary of the attack, has confirmed the suspected involvement of the government of outgoing Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.
The report, which incorporates the testimonies of the 42 surviving eyewitnesses to the massacre, was compiled by the Human Security Centre (HSC), a London-based global security think tank; and the Ashraf Campaign (ASHCAM), a human rights group set up last year to advocate for Iranian refugees living in Iraq.
Formerly home to 100 Iranian refugees, Camp Ashraf was attacked on 1 September 2013, killing 52 residents. Seven residents were also abducted during the attack.
The joint HSC-ASHCAM report identifies Iraqi security forces, acting under orders given by the Iraqi government at the behest of the Iranian regime, as the perpetrators of the massacre.
