The British government insisted it will ensure that public safety is not endangered by the unbanning of the anti-Iran Mujahidden-e-Khalq (MKO) as a terrorist group. The MKO has a long history of terrorism and this is why it was banned both in the UK and by other countries around the world. The MKO, which has carried out wholesale assassinations and terrorist act in Iran since the 1979 Islamic Revolution, was among the first organisations to be formally outlawed under Britain’s Terrorism Act 2000. But now the British court has decided in favour of unbanning of the group after the government rejected a ruling last November for the terrorist group to be removed from its proscribed groups. The government’s appeal has been rejected by three senior judges, headed by Lord Chief Justice Lord Philips. Now it is not known if the government has any further recourse. When the appeal was launched in February, Foreign Office Minister Lord Malloch-Brown said that the British government is not convinced at that the MKO has given up terrorism.
