Barnet Times: Looney British MP seeks to Coddle Terrorists

Iran Pair Plea (from Barnet Times): "told by the Iranian authorities that the pair were arrested on Syria's border with Iraq in possession of US$1million and documentation which was intended to help spread the network of a banned terror organisation, the People's Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI), which opposes the Iranian government. The group is listed as a terrorist organisation by the UK and the USA.
Mr Griffiths said: 'It is clear that they were arrested near the Iraq-Syria border. There is an issue about the money but it's pretty vague. They are members of the National Council of Resistance of Iran an umbrella organisation that counts the PMOI as one of its members, so they were not surprised that they are being kept in prison.'
Mr Griffiths added that the men appeared to be being treated well in prison."
