German Intel Report Says Iran Targets the MEK via Its Berlin Embassy

The German Intelligence Agency has revealed in its latest report that Iran’s Intelligence Ministry plotted assassinations of the Iranian opposition Mujahedin-e Khalq (People’s Mojahedin or MEK, PMOI) from the Iranian Embassy in Berlin.

The Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution of Germany (BfV) released its 2018 report on June 27, which revealed that Iran’s secret service was involved in the “bombing plot against the annual gathering of the PMOI in June 2018 in Villepinte near Paris”.

The report read: “The main source of intelligence activities in Germany is the Ministry of Intelligence of the Islamic Republic (VAJA or MOIS). MOIS collects its information through intelligence operations in conjunction with the ministry’s representatives in the field or with the ministry’s headquarters in Tehran. These (operations) are specifically directed by the headquarters of the Ministry of Intelligence… There is no escape from access by the Ministry of Intelligence, and this provides an ideal opportunity for interrogation.”

BfV head Thomas Haldenwang and Federal Minister of the Interior Horst Seehofer warn that these plots against the Iranian opposition are intensifying, explaining that the MOIS and the Revolutionary Guard Corps Quds Force both engage in intelligence operations via the Berlin embassy.

The BfV report read: “The central task of the Iranian intelligence services is to spy against opposition movements and confront these movements. In this regard, evidence of state-sponsored terrorism in Europe, which originates in Iran, have intensified during 2018.”

This culminated in the attempt to bomb the Free Iran rally on June 30, which was attended by some 100,000 people, for which a diplomat at the Iranian embassy in Vienna was arrested for organising the attack and proving the would-be bombers with the explosives.

The report noted that the MEK is under increased threat from Tehran because of the fear that it will overthrow the Regime, so the MEK is under constant monitoring.

The report read: “Besides monitoring the opposition in Germany, several revealed cases indicate that the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence has planned some terror attempts against the opposition in Europe.”

The Iranian opposition coalition National Council of Resistance of Iran, which includes the MEK, has once again, after reading the BfV report, called for the Iranian MOIS to be designated as a terrorist entity, called for Iran’s embassies across the globe to be closed, and for Iran’s “agents and mercenaries” to be prosecuted or expelled from European soil, especially Germany, because of Tehran’s policy of “exporting terrorism” and “espionage” through them.
